Five Points completes the final spot in Chef Marc Meyer’s trifecta of awesome earthy, brunch spots in Manhattan. While it is the most warm and cozy of the three, it’s missing the open, airy, window aspect that we all love at the other two, Hundred Acres and Cookshop. There is a long log that splits the dinning room in half; a huge Christmas tree with lights is present during the holidays making it a great family-friendly and cheery restaurant. Five Points even pumps out jams with great classics and oldies such as: “Lets Hear it For the Boy” from “Footloose” and songs from the 90’s band the Cranberries (apparently they are making a comeback with a new album in February 2012). Several egg dishes come in baked dishes which make for a cozy and warm brunch. The Eggs Rancheros gives you that Mexican/Spanish flavor that you sometimes crave in the mornings after a long night or when you desire breakfast tacos.
The Wood Oven Roasted Eggs are also awesome and are served over polenta. The bar area is first come first serve so if you can grab a table top upon arrival it’s an instant win. The same infamous Bloody Marys and boss buttermilk biscuits from their other sports are unstoppable here as well. You might as well order two or three as your main course because these three restaurants serve the best biscuits in town hands down. Nothing is better than buttery, doughy, flaky and crunchy flavors all in one biscuit on a Sunday morning!
