The temperature here in New York City has finally begun to cool down, and this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy some seasonal favorites. Soups are a sure bet to help keep your body warm, and your soul happy. Chicken Noodle Soup is a favorite everywhere, but given NYC’s large appreciation for Jewish delis & cuisine, Matzo Ball Soup is a widely popular item across the city. Mansion Restaurant, in NYC’s Upper East Side neighborhood, is famous for their rendition of this iconic item.

Unfortunately, when I went to Mansion, it was still quite warm outside, so I didn’t opt for soup. The atmosphere of Mansion is warm & inviting, exactly what you’d expect from your favorite neighborhood Diner. The staff is friendly, and the food is great. Diner food doesn’t necessarily Instagram the best, but it always hits the spot, and that’s why you love it.
I had major Basic girl Brunch vibes. I ordered a Belgian Waffle (one of my absolute favorite breakfast items) topped with fruit, while my accompaniment went for something a bit more savory, the Greek Chicken Wrap. However, the menu is extensive and full of other Diner favorites like Chicken Parm, Mozzarella Sticks, Burgers, and lots of awesome sandwich options! Stop by if you’re on the Upper East side, or make it a point to go there even if you’re not. It will be worth the trip!
