The Dutch has been on my list for a while now, so I was excited to try it for brunch a couple of weekends ago. Located on a tree-lined street in Soho, The Dutch has a dark interior that makes it the right amount of cozy. The space is surprisingly spacious, with an open kitchen and a couple of dining rooms to maintain the right amount of privacy. There are so many great items on the menu – there was a lot of debate happening internally. For a delicious and low-key morning, this place is perfect.
Start with the Honey Butter Biscuits. They are fluffy, warm, and come with a side of melt-in-your-mouth butter and apricot jam. I still dream about these biscuits.
For the main meal, it was hard to resist the Banana Waffles with Cashew, Maple Syrup, and Crème Fraîche. The bananas on top of the waffles reminded me of Bananas Foster – always a good thing. The Smoked Salmon and Bagel with Soft Scrambled Eggs and Trout Roe was another item on the menu that was irresistible. The best part about it? Two bagel tops. Genius.
