This week, a selection of their grab and go breakfasts in New York City.
If running late is a part of your morning routine, do yourself a favor and check out this list of dishes to grab during your daily dash.
Daily sandwich at Abraço
81 E 7th St.
At this coffee shop they make a different sandwich every day and they’re always good, interesting combinations of vegetables and cheese between housemade flat bread. —Sara Jenkins, Porchetta
Everything bagel with smoked sturgeon at Murray’s Bagels
500 6th Ave.
Everyone in New York has their favorite bagel, and this is mine. Whenever I have the morning off, I head to Murray’s. They make all the bagels in-house so they’re warm when you get your order—no need to toast them! Make sure to get it just how I order it: Everything bagel with smoked sturgeon, scallion cream cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and capers. —Jonathan Benno, Lincoln Ristorante
Double espresso macchiato at Joe
Multiple locations throughout the city
This is technically not a dish, but this is the best espresso in NYC. It is a special thing to be near Grand Central and dash in for a quick shot of caffeine. —Geoffrey Zakarian, The Lambs Club
Chocolate rose at Zucker Bakery
433 E 9th St.
Every morning, I go across the street and get one of these and a cup of coffee. They’re not too sweet, with just enough chocolate to give me the sugar rush I need in the early morning hours. —Amanda Cohen, Dirt Candy
Pain Au Chocolat at La Bergamote
177 9th Ave.
When I close my eyes and bite into one of these, it’s like taking a trip to Paris. Do not share—go alone. So good. —Alexandra Guarnaschelli, Butter
Smoked salmon at Russ & Daughters
179 E Houston St. (grocery) and 127 Orchard St. (café)
Russ & Daughters’ smoked salmon is sliced paper-thin. It’s the finest quality, and nothing else in the city can match it. —Alain Ducasse, Benoit
Baguette at Almondine Bakery
85 Water St., Brooklyn
I know, it’s just a loaf of bread, but it’s the stuff of life. Almondine makes a baguette that is a dish in itself. It amazes all five of my senses. Herve is an unsung master who keeps on keeping on. We need more craftsmen like him and less showmen. —Saul Bolton, The Norm
