The Gastro Bar at 35th buffet breakfast - NYC had a deal on The Gastro Bar at 35th where you could buy a $100 gift certificate for $40.
 Unfortunately, we weren't able to try the Tapas at night, so instead we spent it on the buffet breakfast.


The breakfast buffet was $17 per person

Pancakes, syrup, fresh fruit (cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple and strawberries), eggs, potato hash, sausages
I was a little sad that the syrup wasn't maple syrup (I've been spoiled by Canadian restaurants). The pancakes were kind of crispy at the bottom (i.e. overdone); the eggs were buttery; the potato hash was really good (despite being a little drier than usual because they were sitting at the buffet for a while). 

Cheese and meat plate, croissant, muffin and danish
I wasn't impressed by the baked goods and the cheese and meat plate tasted a little weird to me.

Overall: A rather pricey breakfast, but if we didn't have our gift certificate - it would have been much worse. I think they do much better at dinner than breakfast based on the crowds at night (unfortunately this was our last day in NYC).
