French Toast Secrets: Bourbon, Bananas, Creme Brulee

A dash of bourbon in the maple syrup might be the intoxicating difference in the French toast served at brunch at the Spotted Pig. Roasted pears come alongside the toast at the popular Village gastropub. Best version ever, swears livetotravel.

Five Points makes another standout French toast, stuffed with banana and finished with a caramel creme anglaise glaze, reports kathryn.

Banana also does the trick at Public, whose banana-stuffed French toast is served with excellent bacon.

Perennial brunch favorite Jane dips its stuffed version in batter enriched by creme brulee and a shot of vanilla. Its Upper West Side sister restaurant, the Neptune Room, does French toast the same way.
