Diva at the Met

One of my favourite aspects of this breakfast adventure is that it gives me great excuse to catch up with old friends and meet new ones, too. And today, I had the chance to do both – four dining divas. The word ‘diva’ is derived from the Latin for ‘goddess’. I don’t know why our culture has applied a negative connotation to the word, when really it just means to own one’s true gifts.

Also gifted are the chefs at Diva. The menu is well rounded and the food refined. My Buttermilk Pancakes with Berry Compote and Citrus Mint Mascarpone were outstanding. Also enjoyed were the Diva Benny with Corn Bread and Pancetta, the Egg White Frittata with Charred Tomato and Avocado Salsa and the Smoked Black Cod with Poached Eggs and Smoked Paprika Hollandaise.

White linens and light by day, Diva is also a sexy, low-lit spot at night where desserts are the star.
