44 & X Hell’s Kitchen, NYC: the best brunch I’ve ever had! Ordered the Maryland Crab Cake, Poached Egg, Tomato, and Hollandaise dish and it was so freaking good. The crab cake had large, sweet pieces of crab and the Hollandaise was light and delicate. Combine that with a perfectly poached egg and I’m definitely in my happy place. I had a couple glasses of the Ethel Mermosa as well. We were able to dine without a reservation but I’d recommend calling ahead as the tables filled up quickly.
