I came here 2 meals in a row- for dinner and lunch, something i've never ever done in restaurant-rich NYC. That's how good the food (for a gastropub), ambience and service was.
Our server was very friendly and helpful- never experienced that before in NYC!
Not pretentious or snobbish at all.
Scotch Egg: perfectly done; soft boiled egg wrapped in a layer of well-seasoned sausage and deep fried to perfection. Yolk oozed out silkily when we sliced into the dreamy concoction. Mmmm
Vinegared Poussin with apple chutney: as described by our fabulous server- juicy, flavorful and tender
Lamb Burger with Thrice-cooked Fries: Absolutely one of the best burgers I've ever had. Juicy (So juicy), flavorful and the buns were toasted and seasoned as well. After our first bite, we looked at each other and just sank back into our seats in satisfaction. it was That amazing.
Brussel Sprouts with apple chutney: delicious
Coffee Toffee Tart: wow. perfection
We were seated at the bar overlooking the sidewalk, which was perfect.
Service was great; the bartender was helpful and friendly and again, none of that snobbish terrible attitude described by other Yelpers (maybe we were just that lucky)
We shared the lamb burger and it was just as good. The scotch egg looks even more gorgeous in the daylight. We also had the roasted beets (tasty) and Onion Marrow soup (very rich; we couldn't manage more than a few mouthfuls. my friend had to take it home for dinner)
I highly recommend the Breslin for lunch or dinner
