Opulent Breakfast, Now Served at the Russian Tea Room

The communist red booths of the iconic Russian Tea Room mostly remained empty late last week at 10am, save for a gaggle of middle-aged women celebrating a birthday with too many mimosas.

But why should there be crowds given that the restaurant just announced their breakfast menu, where as before, you could only get your fancy Russian lunch, tea, or dinner. Now, from 7 to 10am, indulge in caviar-laced eggs, caviar-topped pancakes, and caviar gracing smoked salmon.

No, this isn’t an economic meal, even if you skip the roe. For $12 you can get two eggs with potatoes and bacon, $14 buys you a veggie frittata, it’s $32 for their Royal Russian Breakfast, and for steak and eggs topped with foie gras potato hash, that will run your $42. Though the portions aren’t American-sized, they prove rich enough to line your winter belly with thick sauces, hearty meats, and hot pots of Kusmi or Harney and Sons tea.

With this addition of breakfast, now you can truly eat like a New York czar all day long.
