Summer New York Trip: Maisson Kayser

Another really cute restaurant that we visited on our New York trip was Maisson Kayser, a really cute French bakery/restaurant on 3rd and 74th. I usually don't pick restaurants without having heard about it first or seeing the Yelp reviews, but this place looked so cute when we walked by (especially the dessert displays...) so I managed to talk the family into stopping by for brunch. 

Tartine with grilled herb chicken, artichoke tapenade, and cherry tomatoes. This was just okay, I think it would've been better if it was warmer. The flavors tasted okay but nothing special.

Croque Madame - bread toasted with Paris ham and Gruyere cheese with a sunny side up egg. This was my favorite since I have a soft spot for oozy egg (what can I say, I'm easy to please). My sister ordered this so I kept trying to barter pieces of mine for bites of hers.

Tartine with crab, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and red onions. This was mine and while it could also be better if warmed, the flavors in this dish were great. Then again, you can't go wrong with crab and avocado... yums.

Linguini with pesto and shrimp. I really liked this one as well, the shrimp were so big and cooked just right, to the point that they were quivering but just done. I didn't think I'd be so impressed by a simple pasta dish. 

Small raspberry/lemon-based dessert sampler for sharing. T'was difficult to share because imagine trying to cut these tiny dudes into 4 pieces...
