Michael Anthony’s, Jersey City

Brunch at Michael Anthony'sIt’s no secret that I love brunch, especially when unlimited cocktails are involved. I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews for Michael Anthony’s, but I had to give it a try since we live within walking distance. How can you say no to a waterfront restaurant with a $30 brunch buffet?

Lucky us, we managed to grab a table in the outdoor area. Nice and breezy. Lovely view of the river and downtown Manhattan. An ideal setting for Sunday brunch. We left our sunglasses on for most of the meal as it was so bright at our table.Brunch at Michael Anthony'sEven though we’re vegetarian, we were still able to stuff ourselves silly. Plus, all the meats looked overcooked and dried out anyway. Not missing out on much.

One salad had the most amazing pieces of mozzarella. I learned a few tricks while watching the chef at the omelet station. My omelet was delicious, perfectly seasoned. I like that they offer eggs whites as well. Of course, I couldn’t resist the cream puffs, chocolate cake, chocolate eclairs, and chocolate fountain at the dessert station.

The main hot food station needs a little work. The french toast and home fries were decent. Their poached eggs were rather sad and pathetic. (They would be better off with something simpler like scrambled eggs.) Very bland pasta vodka.

All in all, Michael Anthony’s brunch buffet is okay. I’ve done a lot of brunching in NYC, and the food is comparable to most places with a similar price range.
