After spending that exciting first night in your new 70 Charlton condo in New York’s iconic SoHo neighborhood, you’re going to need to find some breakfast. Fortunately, the neighborhood south of Houston Street offers countless breakfast options — ranging from basic to the truly sumptuous — from cuisines that span the globe. Keep reading to get our tips on the finest breakfasts near the new SoHo apartments at 70 Charlton:
Eggs Over Easy
When Egg Shop opened in 2014, single-ingredient restaurants were all the rage, but this SoHo gem survived the fad by taking the concept to the next level. Egg Shop’s breakfast menu consists of sandwiches and breakfast bowls called “Cruisers,” which include options like the “Warrior One,” in which a poached egg is combined with masala-spiced lentils and onion chutney to create a unique dish inspired by Indian cuisine. If you’re looking for even more variations on the incredible edible, Buvette, just a few blocks to the north of Egg Shop, serves eggs in the French style, with dishes like Jambon Cru (steamed eggs with prosciutto and parmesan), Chèvre (steamed eggs with goat cheese, tomato confit, and pesto), and Saumon Fumé (steamed eggs with smoked salmon and crème fraîche).
Keeping It Gallic
Just north of Houston Street, and a short walk from 70 Charlton, you’ll find chef Andrew Carmellini’s love letter to French brasseries in Lafayette, where patrons sit in booths of rich leather while enjoying a breakfast menu of traditional favorites, as well as a bevy of baked goods available from the on-site bakery. If you’re looking for French baked goods south of Houston, try the classic Balthazar, a banquette-filled brasserie that has been a SoHo staple since 1997. The breakfast menu is full of traditional fare (including a perennial favorite, the Full English Breakfast), while the attached bakery carries everything from almond croissants to pain au levain. These classic shops put 70 Charlton just a few blocks from some of the best French breakfasts this side of the Seine.
It Wouldn’t Be Breakfast in New York Without a Bagel
One of the closest breakfast spots to 70 Charlton is also the most quintessentially Manhattan. Though it opened only a few years ago, Sadelle’s on West Broadway is known for serving some of the city’s best bagels, including everything from your standard poppyseed to inventive takes on the “everything” and “no-gluten” varieties. When you go to Sadelle’s, make sure to order one of their famous Towers, which gives you unlimited bagels served with a literal tower of toppings, including Sadelle’s famous whitefish. When you live at 70 Charlton, whether you’re in the mood for pain au chocolat or gravlax, every morning presents the opportunity for world-class dining just outside your front door.
