Brunch at The National Bar & Dining by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian

Chef Geoffrey Zakarian was the winner in the 4th Season of the Food Networks' "The Next Iron Chef, Super Chefs." Chef Zakarian is the visionary behind The National which brings all occasion dining to New York's Midtown. It was designed French Bistro style and offer Brunch in the mornings, has a lunch menu and also dinner menu. This restaurant was suggested to us by the Concierge at our hotel, Waldorf Astoria. It is located  one block  behind the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

My breakfast Berkshire Pork Benedict at The National. The pork bacon strip was actually made in the restaurant rather than commercially bought. It was delicious! Then of course, my Cafe Americano cup for the morning!

The interior of The National designed in the French Bistro style. The National is located at 557 Lexington Ave (at 50th st) New York, NY.  Check out their website:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Met, world renowned Museum located at Upper Fifth Avenue near Central Park. After our big breakfast, we spent the Saturday morning exploring The Met and its various collections.

The Gals at The Met!

Grand Entrance. As my 3 year old niece would say, "let's go! go! go!"

Lots of Cherry blossoms arrangement in the entrance. A sign of Spring to come!

After The Met Museum, we rode the taxi  to Madison Avenue to visit the Hermes Store. Nearby is Barneys which we also explored.

After some more shopping along Madison Avenue, we decided to go downtown along Broadway to have dinner at Soho. This day was a fun and relaxing day, spent chatting with my dear friends, discovering new restaurants like The National for our brunch, also exploring the numerous collections at The Met and walking around Madison Avenue to discover the shops like Hermes and Barneys. I truly enjoyed our visit to The Met. Their presentation in the Museum was very authentic. It felt like we were in the actual region.  We also visited other shops along Madison Ave which I will feature in my blog  next week. Hang on for more this weekend and next week!  There is more to New York!
