To me, the holidays are truly the most wonderful time of the year. Growing up, my family and I always took a trip into the city near the holidays to see the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Because of all those amazing memories, my friends from college and I decided to do a girls trip into NYC to experience the magic of the Big Apple around Christmas time. We started our trip by trekking down to Central Park from Penn Station. It snowed the day before, so when we arrived the Park was covered in a blanket of white. It was breathtaking. While strolling around we made sure to stop at the famous Gapstow Bridge and Central Park Pond for some photo ops of course!
After taking tons of pictures we decided to fuel up with a proper NYC brunch at Jam’s Restaurant conveniently located right across from the Park. The restaurant is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. Ivy covers the exterior of the restaurant contributing to the upscale vibe of the place. The inside of the restaurant is cozy and elegant. Exposed white brick walls, lots of greenery and twinkly lights warm up the space and create a romantic ambience. The menu consists of a great balance of sweet and savory brunch options, everything from brioche french toast topped with an apple-berry compote to killer kale salads. Eating at Jam’s does come with a price so be sure to come financially prepared…I can assure that it is well worth it! I seriously can’t wait to go back in the future.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! Lots of posts are coming soon so be sure to be on the lookout for those! I’m super excited to share them with you!
