After our nice, yet bland, breakfast experience at Sarabeth's, we were looking to try something a bit more adventurous and the fabulous Tenth Avenue Cookshop fits the bill perfectly.
Tenth Avenue Cookshop is an exciting restaurant in Chelsea and you'll need to book, this place is jumping - and deservedly so. These guys are mad for sustainable ingredients, humanely raised animals and supporting local farmers and artisans. Their menu is American with a focus on seasonal availability. The staff are top notch, friendly and passionate, and there are loads of them.
We'd booked in advance, and the line was already forming outside as the doors opened for the day. We were shown to our table by cheery staff and were handed tempting menus whilst our coffee orders were taken. The menu is clever, different and imaginative - no boring hotel breakfast staples here.
I had the cornmeal pancakes with fresh raspberries, and also the beignet special to share, both of which were glorious. The boys had other hot dishes that they raved about. To drink I had a yummy coffee and a Ithaca Ginger Beer, whilst the boys had coffee and BLT Marys.
This place has a real buzz to it and everyone seems to be smiling, both staff and diners. We really enjoyed it, and then went for a walk along the Highline in the sunshine to walk some of it off. Tenth Avenue Cookshop? Go there!
