Ichabod’s

Ichabod’s is small, but size doesn’t always matter.  Not when a bottomless brunch is offered, at least.  Just $15 gets you two hours of mimosas or bloodies, which go great with the country breakfast (two eggs, potatoes, and bacon or sausage).  The food was solid, the vibe intimate, and the location just off Union Square…

Agave

Here’s another one to add to your drunk brunch list, folks: Agave.  $25 gets you an entree plus bottomless mimosas, wine, or frozen margaritas.  Bazinga! I ordered the Southwestern eggs benedict and thought it was a great twist on the traditional.  The English muffins were topped with firm tomato, avocado slices, poached egg, and a…

Stonestreet

When someone says Stonestreet, I’m sure you immediately think of happy hour swamped by banking guys in suits letting off some steam. On a typical weeknight you would be right, but I think it’s worth giving Stonestreet a chance on the weekend, too. Sure, FiDi is significantly quieter when the market is closed and all…

Perry’s

After a big night out on Saturday, Liz and I were looking for a quiet brunch on Sunday.  Eggs Florentine were about as crazy as I planned to get.  Perry’s looked like a great Sunday spot to get some brunch food and maybe people watch at the tables outside.  But as we started walking up…

Pig and Khao

My brother set the bar extraordinarily high before his annual NYC visit.  He told me I needed to find us a restaurant 1) with food he can’t get in Savannah (that’s not Chinese or Korean), 2) is not in an outer borough, 3) is reasonably priced, 4) would knock his socks off.  They said it…

The Cardinal

I’d heard The Cardinal was churning out good Southern food but never made it down to 4th and B to see for myself.  Seeing a $24 BBQ plate on the dinner menu just seemed so anti-Southern I couldn’t bring myself to go.  That kind of Southern food is supposed to be down and dirty and…

Il Bastardo

Steph loves to go to Il Bastardo because it’s easy for her to get to from Hoboken and they apparently do a rowdy, dance party brunch. It’s hard to imagine that when you’re eating lunch there on a random weekday (which I was fortunate enough to do thanks to a pre-memorial day off work), but…

The Pitch and Fork

Major props for Lindsay who decided to host a birthday brunch with friends instead of trying to corral a big group for dinner and a bar night.  She chose neighborhood restaurant The Pitch and Fork for a casual afternoon affair after seeing a menu that included her favorite brunch item, eggs benedict, as well as…

Teqa

After one drink at Cash Bar, Brutus and I were ready to go somewhere new so we headed to Teqa for tacos and margaritas.  I had been waiting for a restaurant buddy to try this restaurant because I tend to be a fan of non-chain upscale Mexican restaurants (i.e.: not Dos Caminos or Rosa Mexicano),…

Essex

Bridget’s bachelorette party was a raucous weekend-long affair, but Saturday was the big night.  We started the evening with dinner at Essex, which is the perfect restaurant for groups.  I’ve heard as much since I moved here but never got to experience it firsthand until now.  I always thought it was the place for party…
