My new favorite brunch spot is Empire State South! It is very southern, classy, and above all else, delicious! It is a bit hard to find in midtown but well worth it! Above is freshly baked bread, pimiento cheese, and bacon jam. Also known as brunch heaven. They also have the best shrimp and grits, chai lattes, bloody Mary’s, and organic oatmeal (plus I added rhubarb compote to those).
