Staying on park ave during the weekend and already have reservations for breakfast at Norma's one morning. Can anyone help with ideas for breakfast/brunch for 2 more mornings? The location doesn't matter, as we will be staying in lower manahattan during the afternoon one of the days, Brooklyn, Staten, where ever, upper w/e is fine too. I've heard different things about Essex for brunch???
Also, are there any areas particularly good for food touring, like chelsea market or others?
