Eleven Madison Park

On Saturday morning, Chris and my mom had the pleasure of meeting each other. 🙂 I picked Eleven Madison Park because I heard good things about their brunch menu and the great view of the park you get from sitting on the second floor. I requested the second floor since I thought it would be nice to have a good view and when we arrived at the restaurant, we walked up TWO steps to the “second floor” and we could barely see Madison Square Park. Oh well. The brunch menu is pretty limited but I ordered the pecan praline pancakes with brown butter bananas and rum raisins (wow that’s a mouthful!):

The bananas were really delicious (I guess anything with butter tastes good, right?) and the pancakes were very moist, although not as moist at the Clinton St. Baking Company. The rum raisins were too chewy, although, I’m not a big fan of raisins to begin with.

Chris ordered the steel cut oats with Devon Cream Cinnamon Toast and Cider Roasted Apples:

My mom asked the hostess what steel cut oats were and since she didn’t know, she went onto a computer and wikipedia-ed it. Isn’t that nice of her? His oats were very thick and stick-to-your-stomach good, which he enjoyed.

My mom ordered the Organic Egg Frittata with Mushrooms, Zucchini and Gruyère, which I ate most of:

The egg frittata was a little runny, but not too runny, which I think is great. The mushrooms and all of the other vegetables were from the nearby farmers market as well, which is a nice way to support small businesses. Overall, I think the brunch at Eleven Madison Park is good, but there was practically no one there when we arrived and the setting was more business-like than brunch-like. On a happy note, my mom and Chris got along very well 🙂
