When it comes to the perfect spot for a comforting autumn brunch, Maialino is hard to beat. Housed in the beautiful Gramercy Park Hotel, the restaurant boasts a rustic yet modern, cozy aesthetic, making it an ideal destination for the crisp days ahead. While it is a Roman-inspired trattoria, and serves some of the best pasta in the city, their brunch offerings truly stand out, and leave you wanting more.
The Cacio e Pepe (soft scrambled eggs, pecorino, and black pepper) is so delicately prepared, that it literally melts in your mouth- Not to mention the Porchetta Roast Pork & Fried Egg Sandwich, and the Brioche Carmellata. The beauty of their food is its simplicity. Their partnerships with local farmers gives them access to the freshest ingredients, and these flavors really speak for themselves.
With fantastic coffee options, breakfast served as early as 7:30 AM, and its close proximity to Dover Street Market, Maialino is a great starting point for a day of power-shopping. Their comfortable seating and stunning views of Gramercy Park have made this place a go-to for countless lovers of gourmet. So plan in advance, and make a reservation to avoid what can be a lengthy wait time.
