Restaurant: North River
Location: 166 First Avenue, New York
Date consumed: 14 December 2014
What I ordered: Belly Doughnut & Smoked Char Benedict
Belly Doughnut: 3 / 5 – Good
Smoked Char Benedict: 4 / 5 – YUM!
Comments: I was craving eggs benedict and the ones I had at Clinton Street Bakery didn’t satisfy but this one DID! Although the first yolk didn’t ooze, their hollandaise was reaaaally tasty! Home fries were okay.
The belly doughnut was good but it could have been better. The pork belly though yummy, overwhelmed the entire dish. As a result you don’t really taste the coconut. I liked that the pickle slices were thin but I wished they put a few more.
Really enjoyed both items, though the belly doughnut wasn’t rated YUM! I’d still recommend you give it a try!
