with scrambled eggs hail from the Upper East Coast. The Deep South makes a show with chicken fried steak and country gravy. And the Southwest shines with zesty huevos rancheros. Omelets abound from the chock-full-ofham Denver to the Greek’s twist of spinach and feta.

The astounding (and aptly named) creation impresses with three crispy potato pancakes layered with eggs, ham, bacon and sausage with cheddar and American cheeses. Then, for good measure, everything’s bound together with a drizzle of delectable cheese sauce. Eggs Benedict fans can choose from six styles of the Hollandaise-draped dish, including combinations like the avocado-centric California, the chorizoladen Southwestern and the Reuben with mounds of corned beef and sauerkraut. Lunchtime offerings lead with cold sandwiches piled high with sliced meats
including roast beef, pastrami, salami and turkey breast as well as spreadable toppings like tuna and chicken salads. Hot sandwich styles range from beef brisket and French dip to grilled chicken and salmon. Add in to the mix leafy salads such as sirloin on fresh greens with bleu cheese and balsamic glaze, plus piping-hot matzoh ball and chicken noodle soups, among others. For beverages, a full bar is available for cocktails, including Bloody Marys and mimosas. On the soft drink side, stars include rich vanilla egg creams, bubbly chocolate phosphates and an array of Dr. Brown’s bottled sodas. Save room for dessert and try Leatherman’s scratch-made cookies, macaroons, rugelach, halvah bars and more.
