Black Tie Brunch at Society Cafe

I love any excuse to wear black tie, and with the passing of the Spring Soirée it looked like I wouldn’t be able to dress up again until the fall. So I decided to make my own black tie party, with a black tie brunch at Society Cafe.

Black tie brunch is basically what it sounds like: a normal brunch, except everyone is ridiculously overdressed. Because when it comes to my group of friends, we certainly know how to be over the top!

The boys nailed their group photo right away.

Whereas we had a few… shall we say… outtakes.

Society Cafe is located inside the Walker Hotel in Greenwich Village. The restaurant is pretty dim, but our group was sat right under the skylight, giving us an angelic glow that set us apart… as if our attire didn’t do that enough already!

Since we were a large group that likes food, I decided to make everything family style. We started with platters of Market Fresh Fruit.

And drinks. Lots and lots of drinks.

Then it was time for the main courses.

We dined on Market Scrambled Eggs with caramelized onions, mushrooms, and gruyere.

And the Avocado Toast with pickled red onion, sun dried tomato, and poached eggs.

We also had slices of amazing Croque Madame Pizza with sauce mornay, bacon and egg.

As well as the Olive Oil Pancakes with apple butter, apple cider bourbon maple syrup, and whipped cream.

For sides we ate thick-sliced Applewood Bacon.

And a massive amount of Roasted Breakfast Potatoes.

The food was really good, and the best part was the restaurant kept bringing out more until we were satisfied.

After we ate, since we still had some time left for our bottomless drinks, we hung around the now-empty restaurant, sharing stories, compliments, and lots of laughs.

While we were at brunch, Jess asked if I was going to blog about the experience by saying something along the lines of, “We had a black tie brunch, because we’re New Yorkers, and we can,” which I thought was hilariously pretentious, and right up my alley. So that’s how I’m going to end this blog post.
