After my trip to France, I fell in love with bread. I never loved bread like some people I know. It was there, it was tasty, but love? Nope. But France changed that. It showed me what bread really should be like. Growing up with sliced bread from the supermarket was what I was used to. It's what I still continue to use. But really, there's so much better. Fresh baked bread with crusts so hard but insides so soft. It's something magical and takes a lot of talent and experience to master that. One of our favorite boulangeries in Paris was Eric Kayser. So when Mr. M&P and I heard that he had an offshoot in NYC, we were thrilled. We trekked out to the UES to find delicious bread, pastries, and breakfast. *Update: Maison Kayser is currently expanded to Flatiron, Midtown, and Columbus Circle.*
Mr. M&P has the Egg and Sausage Tartine ($12) which came with an abundance of scrambled eggs, sausage, mixed vegetables, and cheese. It was a hearty and heavy rendition of an American breakfast. I thought it was too heavy and that it wasn't well balanced. Though, Mr. M&P liked it just fine.
