Location: 92 Calyer St, at Franklin, Greenpoint
Brunch Hours: Sat & Sun, 11a-3p
Long Story Short: Since this place is a sister restaurant to Anella, I would have to say run, don’t walk. The food is creative and amazing. Can get a little pricey if you let it, because you’ll want to literally try everything, but if you can control yourself… more power to you. Oh and the bloody was amazing and garnished with cornichons. yum.
Long Story Long:
I was super-psyched about this place for the one week in between an AMAZING dinner here with Monster and P-nasty et al and our scheduled brunch here last saturday. Sadly, M & P had to bail, but luckily I had my long walk into Greenpoint (and some gaga) to help me deal with my lame passive-aggressiveness and change my attitude. By the time I arrived at my destination, I was in a much more pleasant state of mind to meet my brunch companion – let’s call him Muse (mostly because the direct result of his urging/discipline/commitment to a monthly brunch date in 2012 is what served as my inspiration to start this blog up again…).
In any case, as a result of my dinner, I knew this to be a small-plates-sharing-type place. And I am NOT good at sharing, especially during brunch. Ask my siblings. Read the rest of this entry »
