I only got properly introduced to brunching when we moved away from The Netherlands. We Dutch people love to eat, we really do, but we mostly do breakfast, lunch and dinner. No brunch, no tea-time, no cocktail hour. Of course we find occasions to throw these kind of food/drink feasts, but it’s not something we are truly accustomed to… “Doe maar gewoon, dan doe je al gek genoeg!”
So as a good overseas citizen, I do now brunch. We had some favorite spots in London, however these we had to swap for new spots in New York. Friends from everywhere recommended us places we had to go to, but in all honestly, it’s only now that we are really trying out these places. There’s no weekend passing by without trying something new. From Dosa places at Union Square Park – Thomas’ favorite kind of food – to tiny restaurants in the Village. But now it’s time for Sunday brunch! We might head over to Soho House, as I simply can’t get over their brunch. Too much, and too good.
