1 Hotel New York: Perfection in the Details
This breakfast deserves a review of its own. Down at Jams, the hotel restaurant and bar, food is served a-la-Carte as of 7 am. Dimmed lights, an industrial feel, bricks and metal structures, the aromas of freshly fried eggs activate all my senses. Leather and fabrics, wooden tables, decorative items spread around the shelves... it felt good to start my day here.
“At Jams, a cuisine from California is proposed; because it’s a taste of Italy, a smattering of Mexico, a solid foot in French cuisine, a touch of Asia and a bit of the Mediterranean coupled with basic American cooking.” The food is brought from local farmers and vendors which names are showcased on the menu.

I was hungry and so excited to taste these options written with passion to make your mouth water.
I tend to forget how great looking New York’s breakfast look like. A mountain of scrambled eggs beautifully decorated with a molten burrata on a bed of mushrooms. The plate looks so good that you don’t even want to touch it. The other is about two poached eggs on soft English muffins and a spread of ripe avocado. Fresh, very fresh indeed but both plates miss something; a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of sea salt, a bit of pepper and probably a balsamic reduction. They’re good but can be way better if only a bit of love is poured into them.
The croissant is flaky, buttery but way too intense; too much hard-textured bread is lacking softness and lightness. The croissant is served with jam and butter.
Yummy granola with a load of crunchy things, fresh red fruits, and yogurt; healthy and yummy!
Best for last, the Nutella pancakes are awesome! Superb fluffy pancakes with a load of Nutella, a plate that’s addictive, smooth and moist with an enjoyable kick of sweetness. Yummy, yummy!
Enjoyed it here, the service, the vibe, the music, the coffee and the food; give this hotel a try and stay for breakfast.
