Rise and shine

An insider with many reasons to get out of bed each morning, Emily Elyse Miller is a connoisseur of AM dining. She’s breakfasted and brunched through Manhattan and beyond and morning routines are her business. Through her popular BreakfastClub events, she convinces chefs at megawatt restaurants – Pujol in Mexico City, Portland’s Tusk and the like – to set an early alarm and cook for a gang of woke gourmands. She writes on global food-trends and released Breakfast: the Cookbook, to show that breakfast out of bed is equally enticing…

Where you'll go
Discover how diverse NYC breakfasts can be on this trek through the LES. It’s as much about NYC’s concordant cultures as it is a good morning. Forget Tiffany’s: you’ll start with creative croissants and Spanish-Caribbean delicacies, before exploring an unassuming Chinatown bakery. Then, traverse the globe in several plates, meandering towards Broadway through brunchtime, tasting down-home Southern fare, South-of-the-Border bites, warming Shanghainese flavours and Malaysian morsels as you go.
What you'll try
First, grab a remixed Reuben at punk pâtisserie Supermoon Bakery. Then seek out local favourites: fried platters and Dominican smoothies at El Castillo de Jagua, and ‘pineapple’ buns with congee at Lucky King Bakery. Global treats follow: biscuit-buffered fried chicken at Cheeky Sandwiches, Maya morsels at Factory Tamal, soup at Wu’s Wontons and Malaysian kaya butter (green pandan-coconut jam) on toast with teh tarik (condensed milk with black tea) at Kopitiam. Smashed avo will never seem the same again.
Experience location
You will be meeting at a highly Instagrammable hotspot on Rivington; we’ll send you the details in your confirmation.
