The STANDARD GRILL is one the the best spots for brunch or lunch in New York. Located under the High Line, the restaurant is made up of the two different spaces - one feels like Nantucket with whitewashed walls and the other room has the leather booths and cozy feel of a men's club.
On the menu there are crowd-pleasers like Brioche French Toast, Belgian Waffles, Eggs Benedict, Cobb Salad, Lobster Salad, and Chicken Paillard.
Get there early and grab a table outside and enjoy a side of people watching (and some celebrity sighting) with your Bloody Mary.
