Murray's Cheese Bar Has Brunches Now

Super Sticky Bun Style French Bread
Murray's Cheese is undoubtedly a landmark for New York City, so it was understandable when everyone got excited about their new cheese bar just a few doors down the block (towards Morton Street). Until this very weekend, you could only stop by during the evening for a cheeseboard or mac and cheese or a grilled cheese or the warm burrata. In other words, they weren't open for brunch. But starting tomorrow they are.

Of course we said yes when they asked if we wanted to stop by for a press preview the other day. I abhor the scourge of modern New York life that is the brunch wait, but that does not mean I do not love brunch. One quick look at the menu and I sort of knew I had to get the Super Sticky Bun Style French Toast. Pullman bread stuffed with cream cheese and topped with cinnamon toffee sauce and toasted pecans, pretty much the perfect decadent breakfast that requires an afternoon nap. I will say my favorite part was the sauce--I almost asked to take some home to pour over ice cream or use as a topping for doughnut bread pudding. Or just eat it by the spoonful as I caught up on my shows.
