Blenheim is a new spot on West 12th, right next to Dell’ Anima, The Beatrice Inn, and Cafe Cluny. The location is money; and is arguably on one of the best corners in the West Village.
I knew this place recently opened, and had heard amazing things from my friend Eric claiming it was “one of the best meals of the year”.
My friend Andrew came and met me for Sunday brunch and what a treat it was! The interior of the restaurant is very light, airy, and rustic. But we decided to hang outside and people watch.
All their food is farm to table and comes from the Blenheim Farm in upstate New York; hence it was unbelievably fresh. You can tell when restaurants use really fresh ingredients. In addition, some of their preparation was among the best I’ve ever seen. To date, their Cream Cheese Panna Cotta desert was the prettiest thing I have ever eaten.
I had the Blenheim scramble which is scrambled eggs, ham, and cream cheese. Delicate and delightful. And of course, I also had a side of bacon, which was nice and crispy.
Andrew said his herb omelet was bomb. Cooked to perfection.
Who doesn’t get desert after brunch? The herb sorbet from their farm was the perfect way to end a nice meal.
Can’t wait to come here for Dinner 🙂
