High ceilings, generous portion sizes and corner lounges – New York tomato has a very New York feel. You will actually find New York Tomato on the corner of New and York streets in Richmond, see what they did there?
You have the choice of sitting on the patio out the front or upstairs under the fans near hanging bamboo mats. New York Tomato is a hidden gem, it has an open tropical feel which is a little bit queensland a little bit New York. It serves great food and you can be relaxed as you like either at the table or laid back on the couches.
The food portions are extremely generous and if you eat breakfast here you won’t need to eat anything else for the rest of the day, so you can justify a trip to breakfast as a money saving venture. New York Tomato combines unusual flavours that are balanced and cooked just right so you get a little bit of everything you need but don’ts feel overwhelmed. For example Pummel had scrambled eggs with roast pumpkin, fetta, basil, sumac and onion relish on turkish bread. The belgian waffles are devine and as you can see from the picture are enormous, but what is brilliant is that they are served with labna and banana so you aren’t overwhelmed by the sugar.
Just a note – if a hungover friend comes to breakfast and they ask if the tart is ‘very eggy’ and what they really mean is they don’t eat eggs at all, tell them explicitly that the tart (like all breakfast tarts) contains egg so they don’t act all suprised when it arrives with egg.
And, do we want to stay for breakfast? Abso-freaking-lutely
