  • Housed within the hip Ace Hotel, The Breslin is an English-style pub owned by Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield, the forces behind popular West Village gastropub The Spotted Pig.
  • This is the place to tweet and be seen. Their meaty lunch menu includes terrines, ham, sea bass and steak, but the most popular entree is the lamb burger ($17).
  • You can try two Where to Eat 2011 picks under one roof; after dinner here head across the Ace lobby to the new John Dory for a dessert of the excellent eccles cake. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
  • If you want a reservation, come with a party of eight for April Bloomfields whole roasted pig dinner.
  • walk in, walk straight up the stairs. don't worry about "leaving your name": hang by the upstairs bar, have them pull you cask ale (hand pump!) and then snag a seat at the opportune moment.
  • Recommended: Scrumpets, onion soup, Caesar salad, terrines, lamb burger, pork belly, pig's foot, fries, cabbage and bacon, sticky toffee pudding, Eton mess.
  • Cumin mayo is overrated. That said, if you don't order the chocolate doughnuts for dessert, you can't be our friend anymore.
  • A sceney destination in the Ace Hotel with a lamb burger that's one of our favorites in the city.
  • The team behind the Spotted Pig brings this new gastropub that projects a certain swagger. Chef April Bloomfields knack for unusual meats is evident, and the menu reads a bit like Dickens.
  • Pig's trotter and lamb burger.
  • The Lamb burger and fries is definitely top notch, but don't discount the rest of the menu which is equally as good. Split the burger with someone so you can try lots of other things too.
  • English gastropub owned by Spotted Pig crew. High-ceilinged space filled with meat, martinis, grand, vintage decor and dark green leather booths.
  • the best seats in the place: at the upstairs bar (much less crowded). if you're feeling light, small plates: pork scratchings, scotch egg, etc. if you're hungry: lamb burger, pork belly, etc.
  • Have you tried the whole pig carved table side at The Breslin? I did, too much pig for me.
  • Scotch egg. A must.
  • Don't even *think* about trying to order your starters separate from your entree at lunch unless you want a hipster waiter to tell you "the chef's rules". It's lunch. Don't take it so seriously.
  • If you like protein this is the place to be!!!
  • the english breakfast with wheat toast is divine, particularly on a saturday
  • I love April Bloomfields new place. Really hip, and the food is amazing. A perfect lunch or brunch spot while out running around in NYC. -Susan Feniger, Top Chef
  • One time a woman brought a baby to the bar and proceeded to let him put his ninja turtle backpack on our table. This is not a tip, I just wanted someone to know this happened
