This California-style eatery brings a touch of Venice Beach sunshine to the Upper East Side. The bright, airy space gives off some serious West Coast vibes, as does the fresh, health-conscious menu. Along with the typical drink menu of lattes ($4) and cappuccinos ($3.75), Blake Lane also offers a trendy golden milk latte made with almond milk, ginger and turmeric ($5.50). In need of atonement for last night’s sins? Sip one of five tonics, ranging from a hot hibiscus number with ginger and cinnamon ($4) to an apple cider vinegar and bay leaf infusion ($3.50). The brunch menu tilts similarly healthy, with a coconut rice porridge topped with roasted pear ($12), a spiralized squash bowl with basil pistachio pesto ($14) and the obligatory avocado toast ($9) on offer. Blake Lane also serves dinner—think a little gem salad with grapefruit and pink peppercorn ($12) and locally sourced chicken confit served with collards and brown rice ($24).
