Aita was a brunch stop on a recent visit to Brooklyn. It’s a swank little restaurant with chic vintage flair, well-curated, not over adorned. The menu has options for every guest. I chose the montecristo, pretty basic, no minds blown. The dinner menu seems to be their focus, next time I’ll get a pasta dish.
On my first trip to Commonwealth, I was underwhelmed with my cocktail and the service. However, being that it was only a day or two after the opening and I didn’t even try the food, back I went for brunch. I’m happy to report that the food is good. Unfortunately, the service still needs perfecting.
What’s a Saturday in New York without brunch? Preserve 24 was too adorable to pass up. The food was good, nothing spectacular, but the decor and service were notable.
Saturday afternoon brunch at Tink’s, they were kind enough to accommodate our party of 9 even though the restaurant is super tiny. On Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30am to 4pm there’s a prix fixe brunch; choice of entree, coffee or tea, and a mimosa for $16. Coffee, food, service, and ambiance were excellent! The quirky decor is adorable and they bring checks out in children’s books (Amelia Bedelia, Goosebumps, cute!).
The chicken was great, pretzel crunch was delicious. The waffles were good, a bit on the heavy side due to the multi-grain batter. Combined with the heaviness of the pretzel coating, perhaps a regular buttermilk waffle would have been more appropriate. The chipotle honey butter was like a spicy version of sweet and sour sauce and paired well with the chicken.
I enjoyed the slight spicy heat in the gravy. Since I started with the chicken, the dish seemed to lack texture. Overall, it was great, but the chicken was my favorite.
