Friend of a Farmer Gets An “F” for Fabu-licious

Every now and then we Magpies need to leave the craziness of NYC for something a little more mellow. So when we want to take a trip to the country without leaving the city, we head for brunch at Friend of a Farmer on Irving Place between 18th and 19th Streets. The weekend brunch is extremely popular, and rain or shine, there’s usually a line. The decor has a rustic, country feel, with floral and checkered accents and a creaky wooden staircase leading up to the second floor. And because it’s located on Irving, it’s really quiet – you never even hear the honk of a taxi. Now onto the food… This is a spot we frequent not only because of the variety of  breakfast dishes, but because we love the corn bread that’s served before the meal. As soon as you sit down, the wait staff  brings over a small skillet of toasty corn bread, served with warm butter and apple chutney on the side. It’s so good that we usually polish it off  before we even order. Their brunch menu’s complete with a great selection of omelets, waffles, french toast, and pancakes as well. On our recent trip, we ordered chocolate chip banana pancakes, a white cheddar and tomato omelette and our very favorite……a classic Belgian waffle topped with  bananas and fresh strawberries. So if you’re looking for a little weekend escape, that will make you feel like you’re back on the farm without having to endure the traffic and car sickness, head to Friend of a Farmer for brunch. We’re sure you’ll want to make this place a good friend of yours too. Friend of a Farmer gets an ‘F’ – not because it sucks, but because it’s deserving of the “F” on our prestigious list of Alphabests!
