One of my favorite brunch combinations happens to be Chicken & Waffles. It is my theory that if a restaurant pays homage to this southern brunch favorite, then other deliciousness is sure to follow. Can you just smell the Mac & Cheese, Homemade Biscuits and Cheesy Grits? Scroll through to find the best Chicken & Waffles in NYC.

UPLANDUpland

Where: 345 Park Ave S, New York, NY 10010 (Flatiron)

Why: This California inspired restaurant by the chef, Justin Smillie, goes back to the roots of California cuisine, blending Italian fares with creative American bites, along with an extensive, worldly wine list (500+), upland is surely worth a visit.

Named one of Jetsetter’s Hottest Tables in NYC and one of the New York Times’ top restaurants of 2015, Upland happens to be one of my favorite NYC restaurants and is still one of the hardest reservations to snag in NYC. (During my last visit it took me three weeks). Everything on the menu is simply delicious and in my opinion worth a try. Even ordering what may seem like “ordinary” chicken transforms into something succulent at Upland. Seriously, I’m not playing, even the complimentary Bread is delicious.

Here are MY TOP FIVE RECOMMENDATIONS AT UPLAND

ESTRELLA
