Good Enough to Eat Restaurant Review

: Come with a hearty appetite and patience for the line you’ll most likely encounter, especially at brunch time. But the wait is worth it for the fluffy, fruit-laden pancakes, hearty omelets, and biscuits served with Good Enough to Eat’s strawberry butter. Chef-owner Carrie Levin has mastered the art of classic comfort food and at dinner the cozy Upper West Side eatery continues dishing up huge portions. The long menu is not for the indecisive. But if you need help, try the juicy 12-ounce pork chop or the traditional turkey dinner (which comes with all the fixin’s, in case you can’t wait for Thanksgiving). The rustic farmhouse décor is warm and welcoming, as are the bottomless cups of coffee. Don’t miss the homemade cakes and pies for dessert.
