Brunch is the name of the game at Brooklyn-based restaurant Pardon My French. On their regular brunch menu, they offer a bottomless horseradish vodka infusion bloody mary or a mimosa paired with a food item, like the Fruit Buttermilk Pancakes with maple syrup and sweetened cream, or a Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame. Look to their brunch a la carte menu for a beef tartare or Steak Frites, or try the Assiette de Fromage or the Assiette de Charcuterie for shareable options.

For Delectable Desserts

Jaqcues Torres Chocolate

Better known as “Mr. Chocolate,” French-inspired Jacques Torres Chocolate and his signature truffles have earned his moniker, covering the full span from praline and caramel to nouveau tastes such as Earl Grey and saffron. Other goodies include chocolate-chip cookies and “wicked” spiced hot chocolate, which are truly heavenly.

Dominique Ansel Bakery

The birthplace of the "half croissant, half donut" pastry, most commonly known as the Cronut, Dominique Ansel Bakery serves refined confections that are now available for delivery throughout the city. Stop by their original Soho location to taste the Blossoming Hot Chocolate, a marshmallow flower that forms when placed in the cup of a Chef's Hot Chocolate. There's no going wrong with a legendary Cronut, either. The flavor changes each month, but past flavors include Strawberry Hojicha and Rhubarb Toasted Oat.
