Brunch at Tink’s – NYC

A row of chicken and waffles!

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.
