Maison Kayser

For lunch on Tuesday, I had to try a place I have seen on Instagram almost 1000x - Maison Kayser.  It is originally a French artisan boulangerie that has several locations in New York City. One of the things that the boulangerie prides itself on is taking the time to make bread by hand from scratch exactly how they do in Paris. Every location should have a good authentic bread experience for the customers. They want the bread to be so good that the owner created a special machine to make sure his bread comes out perfect every time. As an industrial engineer - I can dig that to the highest level because repeatability is the sign of a great process. I love anything French so this was the perfect place to wet my palette of NYC cuisine. 

I started with the vegetable soup. It was lentil soup! It was creamy, thick, and the croutons were to die for!

I had the Salmon Tartine for my main course. It was sourdough bread, smoked salmon, creme frache, onions, kapers and friend egg on top. It was so good that I have to learn how to make something similar at home. If I perfect it, I will for sure post to the blog!

I finished with the Citron Tart. It was really light and refreshing. 

Overall, the meal was great, the service at 2 pm was awesome and the atmosphere was phenomenal. 
A definite stop to eat for lunch or brunch if you stop in the city!
