Brunch with Scott
Public in SoHo (Elizabeth between Prince and Spring) has an awesome brunch, particularly nice in the summer when they open up the restaurant via their loading dock. The dining room is big and airy with red brick and plants.
Public has a great price fixe brunch -- a breakfast dish and drink for $22. We started with excellent peppery Bloody Mary's. I was impressed they also had Bloody Caesar and Bloody Maria options. We split a tea-smoked salmon and spinach benedict on sourdough with yuzu hollandaise sauce and a banana-stuffed French toast with bacon and maple syrup. The benedict was excellent, egg was perfect and the salmon and yuzu sauce were perfect. French toast, I mean how can you go wrong with stuffed French toast with bacon and syrup, so good.
