If there was ever a restaurant to visit just for just one menu item, this is it.
Elephant & Castle is a well-known West Village chronic brunch establishment, with a unique menu and possibly the single greatest brunch invention of all time: Eggs’n Apples Benedict on French Toast With Maple Syrup. That’s right. French toast topped with fresh apple slices, two poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. Add bacon if you so choose…and you f*cking better. There might not be a better meeting of sweet and savory on a breakfast plate in the history of mankind. There also might be no greater threat to our existence. You should eat that thing about as often as you get X-Rays.
Other than the one legendary dish and a few other gluttonously delicious menu items, Elephant & Castle is pretty straightforward – it’s a beloved neighborhood cafe and bar with some character. Brunch is obviously the most popular meal and can be very crowded, but lunch and dinner are both respectable, and it’s a good option for a quick burger and a beer. E&C is definitely worth a weekend trip and even a modest wait, as long as you are capable of exercising some minimal amount of patience. A few drinks should help.
