NYC’s Only ALL Brunch Resource

Week of 04/11 ONE+ONE ARCHIve

Pardon My French

THE PLACE

You won't find white tablecloths here. Rather you'll find a friendly and accessible French bistro that plays hip, modern music that is a bit clubby and puts you in a party mood. The vintage tin ceiling that has been painted over, and the wooden tables and chairs give the restaurant a casual feel, and the French waitstaff couldn't be friendlier. I can't wait for late April when the back patio opens up. Pardon My French is also trés economical-- you can choose between the $14.95 menu or the $24.95 menu.

Note the restaurant is CASH ONLY.

What to Eat

The $14.95 menu includes coffee or tea, plus an entree. The stand out dishes include the French Toast with Fruit, and the Croque Madame. I highly recommend you order the Steak Tartare for the table.

What to Drink

For $24.95, Pardon My French offers an entree plus Unlimited Mimosas and Bloody Marys. And one of the best parts about ordering prosecco and Mimosas here is that PMF presents individual size bottles of Villa Jolanda prosecco. They are just adorable and are such a nice touch.

The East Pole

THE PLACE

The East Pole is well worth the trip even if you don't live in the neighborhood. Its name is a playful contrast to the North Pole, and also a nod to how they source local ingredients from Eastern New York. Inside you'll find modern, minimalist decor, and navy colored booths set against light-colored wood. Pro Tip: if you are a group of six, try to score the big round table in the back, perfectly situated under the skylight. If you are a larger group celebrating a special occasion, the upstairs space is great for a private event like a birthday, bridal or baby shower.

What to Eat

Go for the Dutch Apple Pancake with Bourbon Maple Syrup, and for a side order the Scotch Egg & Mustard Seed. Most places over-fry their Scotch Eggs, but The East Pole nails it. There is also a Macro Plate if you are into something uber healthy.

What to Drink

The cocktails at The East Pole are excellent. A few of our favorites include: The Spiced Pear Bellini (house cinnamon infused vodka, Lillet, and ginger), the Pass The Dutch (Bols Genever, fresh lemon, egg white and a red wine float), and the Spiced Apple (house cinnamon infused vodka, Baentzen Apple and fresh lemon).

Reservation Policy

Brunch reservations are accepted for parties as small as two.
