One of my favorite spots in town to eat and enjoy life is Balthazar on Spring Street in SoHo http://www.balthazarny.com/. Red banquettes, smoky mirrors, really long bar, very French, oui oui. Today would be a perfect day to settle in for a cocktail (a glass of vino or a kir) and onion soup gratinee. I have eaten here several times but never for breakfast. A morning of cafe au lait and fresh brioche is on my wish list (and, as a bonus, I hear it’s a hip spot for writers to hang in the morning.) Hope you’re somewhere dry and cozy and French!
