Saturday morning, I rolled out of bed and out the door much earlier than is recommended so I could run to Central Park, and then run the 4-mile Run for Central Park. My motivation? Fairway Cafe's "Big Boy Special"—eggs, bacon, and a stack of Elaine's pancakes. Elaine's silver dollar-sized pancakes are my favorite pancakes in the city—not too thick, tender, buttery, and served with real maple syrup, they make me so so so happy. I'd be remiss if I didn't give the eggs a shout-out eggs, too. Perfectly cooked to order (I like my eggs scrambled soft or loose, or sunny side up), and treated with the respect and care a good egg deserves. If you know of better pancakes or eggs in the city, do tell!
