Bespoke and very good brunch option in New York
This is a quality brunch place in New York. Nestled in the charming East Village, I loved this non-chained venue on a trusted recommendation from my associate Mr Bainbridge – he is usually never wrong on these things. The interior and place, in general, is a snug hideaway and aside from a gorgeous bloody Mary (made with pepper vodka, horseradish and harissa), the bacon cooked in maple and thyme here is among the best bacon I have ever had in my life – so simple but just outstanding flavour with the sweet maple and fragrant thyme combination on quality bacon rashers cooked perfectly. Hasbrowns were harmless and the only aspect of the visit that was not as grand was the egg sandwich that had a huge wedge of Gruyere (one of my favourite cheeses) that had gone as cold as the muffins, but I can forgive this based on the flavour of the ham…..and the bacon….always! A very nice spot for brunch in New York off the beaten track and strolling around the lovely neighbourhood afterwards without a plan was just as enjoyable – another thing I would recommend to do.
