Brooklyn Bridge Brunch

Kendall, Steph and I have been friends since high school and have gone through everything together. So you can imagine how excited Kendall and I were when we found out that Steph was coming to visit us in New York! We immediately began planning what we would do and where we would take her, and two fantastic ideas came to mind. We had to have a boozy brunch (it’s SO New York) and we had to take her over the Brooklyn Bridge! So we combined the two in what we referred to as our “Brooklyn Bridge Brunch.”

We started at 121 Fulton Street, which is both the address and the name of the restaurant located at that address. I found this out after I kept asking Kendall for the name, not the address! 121 Fulton Street is in the Financial District right near the bridge, which made it the perfect start to our adventure.

We started with mimosas, obviously.

Kendall ordered the Baked Eggs which are served with spinach, roasted tomatoes and bacon.

Steph and I both chose the Truffled Mac and Cheese, which at this point shouldn’t surprise you at all.

Steph also ordered the Chopped Vegetable Salad and let Kendall and I share it with her. It has everything you could want in a salad: red onion, avocado, tomato, cucumber, corn, feta and hearts of palm covered in a creamy black truffle vinaigrette.

After the food, it was time to head to the bridge!

The bridge gives you the most beautiful views of the city, and even the most jaded New Yorkers enjoy the experience.

After we reached Brooklyn, we wandered around and did some shopping. We even snuck a peak at the Etsy offices, and were impressed to see that there’s a rainforest when you walk in! Well, maybe more Rainforest Cafe than actual rainforest, but it’s still pretty unique!

After we had our fill of Brooklyn, we headed back to Manhattan… via the East River Ferry!

The ferry is another great way to see the city, and travel in a way that’s a little more fun than the subway!

Steph should visit all the time, don’t you think?
