Gilt City is also making sweet music at Victor’s Café (236 W. 52nd St. #1), a family-owned Cuban restaurant where you can brunch on a skylight patio while listening to live jazz. Many of Victor’s authentic Cuban dishes — Huevos Cubiche (two fried organic eggs served over white rice, picadillo de chorizo, diced potato and sweet plantains), Taquitos de Monteria de Lechon (yucca tortillas with sautéed pork hash) and Torrejas (warm Cuban-style French toast drenched in almibar syrup served with whipped cream and tropical fruit) — are still made with old family recipes. You get two of those dishes, one appetizer and four cocktails for $42. And if four cocktails aren’t enough, Victor’s sangria is half off during brunch! Now that’s one sweet brunch bargain!
