Last Sunday Jon and I had brunch at David Burke Kitchen. We had purchased a groupon and were really excited about getting the chance to have brunch there. Once we were seated, we waited over 20 minutes before even being offered a glass of water. If you have read my other reviews, I am not picky and rarely comment on service unless it is really bad. Waiter strolled past us many times without even an acknowledgement. Finally our waiter arrived gave us water then disappeared again. I was able to make eye contact with a guy that I assume was the manager and he came right over. We placed our full order right down to the dessert because I felt like if I didn’t I would be there all day. It is a shame because we really were looking forward to eating at David Burke Kitchen. Enough about the lack of service let’s talk about the food. We started with yogurt with granola and berries.
The eggs benedict was pretty good. I have had better but the egg was cooked well, which I have found to be a problem at most brunches I have been to in NYC. The bloody mary was just ok and a crazy $16! For a tiny drink I know we are in NYC but come on guys! Not worth it.
