I went to meet up with Chef Bill and some of his friends to catch up at Garage Restaurant and Cafe in Greenwich Village. I know they have a Jazz Brunch, but for the life of me I don’t recall if I heard any music while we were there. I have to admit, however, we were quite rowdy, so I blame us entirely if we missed it.
Their weekend brunch menu is from 11am-4pm and includes an entree and Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, Mimosa, or OJ for $17.75. Or you can make the alcohol unlimited for just an additional $6. Not a bad deal. I’m pretty sure we all went for the bottomless option.
One person in our group tried the tuna burger. They had no complaints.
The rest of us all got eggs of some kind.
Most of us got the Farmer’s Market Omelet with zucchini, tomatoes, asparagus, eggplant, and yellow squash with farm fresh eggs. They came with potatoes, but I went with salad (trying to be good). This was surprisingly good. All those vegetables really made for a delicious omelet!
I didn’t have high expectations of this place. I don’t know what it was, but the moment we walked in there I figured it was probably a run-of-the-mill, busy brunch place. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked my veggie-filled omelet. The deal is quite good, however, most of the benedict options require a good amount of extra money ($5-$10). I’m not sure if I’d run to go back, but seems like a solid choice if you’re looking for a bite in the neighborhood. And who doesn’t love a bottomless brunch drink?
