New York City's Boilermaker is Now the Self-Proclaimed “Home of the Midnight Pancake”
I love brunch. Let’s be honest, what kind of person doesn’t? That said, oftentimes I don’t wake up early enough to enjoy a nice, long, New York-style, sit-down (sometimes boozy) brunch. So lovers of sleep and breakfast, get ready: Boilermaker has made your dream come true with its new, fully stacked menu of fluffy pancakes and bacon-infused cocktails. Bacon and cocktails? Count me in.
Self-touted as the “Home of the Midnight Pancake,” Boilermaker offers a full selection of the best brunch foods from midnight to close, seven days a week.
The pancake selection is extraordinarily extensive. Pancake plates come with three stacked pancakes served with a choice of maple syrup or house-made butterscotch. Flavors include strawberry with house-made jam butter; red velvet with a cocoa batter and frosted cream cheese topping; s’mores made with a marshmallow batter; and apple pie, created with a house-made chunky apple compote batter.
For those looking for savory nighttime foods, also featured is the purple potato pancakes and a classic egg sandwich with truffle aïoli. Of course, you also have bacon and sausages to order.
If your late-night escapes didn’t do the trick, cocktails include the Benton’s Old-Fashioned with bacon-infused Four Roses Yellow Label, maple syrup, and Angostura bitters, and the house mimosa with sparkling wine, fresh orange juice, house Curaçao, grapefruit bitters, and a splash of Citadelle London Dry Gin.
