Frosted Flake French Toast at Simon Restaurant

Few do brunch so well as Kerry Simon at his eponymous Palms Place restaurant. All the chef’s hallmarks are there, including his famous junk-food dessert platter, but it’s the French toast that steals the show. Thick and eggy brioche is rolled in—what else?—Frosted Flakes. Covered with berries and dripping in Vermont maple syrup is the way to eat it. It’s not the healthiest way to start a day, but Sundays are perfect for treating yourself. $13, in Palms Place, 944-3299.

Corey Keck, one of I ♥ Burgers’ “Milkshake Girls,” says she makes more than 100 shakes—both regular and spiked—on a typical day. The biggest sellers, she says, are the Chocolate Thunder (a triple-chocolate shake with Phillips Union cherry whiskey and Mozart chocolate liqueur) and the Twisted Caramel Corn, the makings of which employs a puree of fresh, sweet corn and house-made caramel.
