Foursquare Tips

  • All dishes were pretty basic, but delicious. Try kale Caesar salad, orecchiette, crab & avocado toast. Made us wait 40 minutes for our table, offered free crudo for the wait & then charged us for it!
  • Try the sundae, bourbon-vanilla & Scotch-chocolate ice creams form the base; the booze factor are cherries soaked in Pimms, and salted-caramel chocolate sauce & whipped cream mellow the alky punch.
  • Don't make a reservation on Open Table, they will call you the day of to cancel it.
  • Try the duck fat fries...
  • Grapefruit mimosa is amazing
  • One of the best brunches in NY (best in UES). Simple yet so complex in its flavors - soul satisfying, no pretension, and incredible incredible service and people- feels like home should be.
  • Food is pretty great, drinks are great...order the "smoked peach" from the cocktail menu...
  • Good neighborhood bar and restaurant, if you're neighborhood is the UES where there are few options.
  • The best avocado toast with soft boiled egg and hot sauce - wonderful brunch!
  • Awesome brunch spot on the Upper East Side. Sit outside if the weather is warm, or under the skylight if it isn't. Avocado toast, eggs florentine, or yogurt and granola are all great bets.
  • MUST have the grilled cheese!
  • ORDER: Roasted cherry tomato and curry toast, Peekytoe crab on toast, Heirloom-bean salad with pigs cheeks, Fish pie, Ice-cream sundae or Bread-pudding special
  • Chef Nicholas Wilber's menu includes light dishes like fluke crudo, white gazpacho, and roasted heirloom carrots, as well as things like chicken Kiev and a bacon cheeseburger with duck fat fries.
  • Scotch egg, kale ceaser, and chicken kiev make for a solid order! Avoid the bass, pretty bland and uninteresting.
  • Peeky Toe Crab with Avocado Toast is delicious!
  • Lobster & fennel pie a must. Chicken Kiev is special. Scotch egg snack is great. Share mains.
  • Great patio brunch spot with indoor seating under a sunlight on a nice day. Food is average but you're paying for the ambience.
  • Great service. Interesting cocktail and food choices. Great food. Pleasant atmosphere. Lots of natural light.
  • Good place for after-work drinks. Nothing special but not bad either.
  • Tomato Soup + Grilled Cheese was great
