Went for brunch. The maple sausage was awful. The coffee weak (get a shot). For $38 the menu is extremely pricey considering they don't give you bread or anything - it does include a cocktail. I had a bellini which was the highlight for me. The eggs over easy on white toast were EXACTLY that. The pancakes were too heavy (left beside us on neighbouring table). Food is bad, ambience is missing and it's generic whilst trying to be all "special." If you have to go - a) request a window seat by the park b) order the burger c) prepare to pay. Essentially I have to ask myself would I go back? Emphatically No.

The front-end staff is smug and indifferent, the food uninspired, the decor commonplace.

BLT Market is the perhaps the best of the Manhattan featuring the best of the Hudson River Valley and Long Island agricultural purveyors. In fact we were seated next to a large table hosted by BLT MarketÃ‚Â’s meat purveyor who enjoyed celebrity status with the restaurant management and the executive chef. Yes, this is truly a restaurant that benefits from and takes advantage of the best of local food products. We received wonderful updated versions of pigs in a blanket as our chefÃ‚Â’s tasting along with a wonderful fresh, hot garlic and pesto infused baguette. The menu is seasonal featuring produce and other ingredients available at the time. During a recent winter dining, salads were accompanied with winter seasonal produce and winter seafood. Both were outstanding. Our main courses of Amish chicken and Berkshire pork chop were very good, both a reflection of a slow cooking approach. And while slow cooking has advocates, it our personal opinion that we prefer our pork chops and chickens roasted in a hot oven which produces crisper and more seared results. BLT Market is charming and being across the street from the Central Park horse carriages, there is a real country feel.
