Maison Pickle

A few weeks ago Greg’s parents came up to NYC to see us (and to see Hamilton)! And although they were likely more excited to see Hamilton than to see us (can you blame them?!) we still made it a point to show them a good time.

On Sunday we took them to a brunch spot on the Upper West Side that I’d been dying to try: Maison Pickle. Can you believe I hadn’t been there yet?!

Unlike its sister restaurant, Jacob’s Pickles, at Maison Pickle you can make brunch reservations, which makes it the more convenient of the two.

Here they are: the guests of honor!

And here we are: not Hamilton!

Bob and Donna both selected the Lumber Jack Stack with French toast, breakfast sausage, crispy bacon and eggs.

They certainly didn’t leave hungry!

I had the Poutine Tots with chicken gravy, mozzarella cheese and hollandaise. While it sounds like a great concept, in reality it wasn’t very good at all and didn’t have much of a taste.

Greg dined on the Fried Chicken ‘n’ Toast with buttermilk fried chicken, bacon, maple butter and syrup.

And for a side we all shared the “classique” Mac and Cheese. It was pretty good, and I ended up eating more of this dish than I did my main course.

I don’t know if I’d say Maison Pickle lived up to the hype. I suppose every New Yorker needs to brunch there at least once, but it isn’t somewhere I’d necessarily repeat.

Afterwards the four of us continued the weekend’s Broadway theme by seeing The Band’s Visit along with Bob and Donna’s friends: Hank and Joan.

See that man on the left in the below picture? That’s Bill Army who plays Zelger in the musical. As it turns out, Bill is married to Hank and Joan’s niece! Which means he’s practically family(…ish)!

Afterwards Bill was so welcoming, bringing us backstage and even onstage. He was such a gracious host, telling us funny stories about the production and his own experiences on Broadway. These insights really made the show that much more special.

All in all it was a pretty great Broadway weekend, if I do say so myself!
