One of the first brunch places that made me fall in love with brunch was The Sunburnt Cow in the LES. It was always a trek, however, to get to Avenue C. So I was thrilled when they opened up a new place, called The Sunburnt Calf, on the UWS (79th between Broadway and Amsterdam). Like The Cow, The Calf offers Endless Brunch, which is a selection of most brunch meals on the menu plus endless Moomosa’s, Moo Mary’s, Foster’s, Screwdrivers, and Greyhounds for $18. My mom, also being a fan of The Cow, joined me for my first sampling of the Calf.
The day we arrived it was HOT! And the AC was not working. We kept our menus to use as fans.
Mom got Eggs Benedict.
I decided to try the omelette of the day, which was a Greek Omelette.
It had feta and tomatoes and was supposed to have shrimp. Sadly, they went a little skimpy on the fillings (and since it was $5 more, it seems pretty sad).
Overall, it’s hard to beat endless brunch drinks at all. This was a bit disappointing, however. Nothing was outstanding and the lack of filling in my omelette was a pretty poor performance. The heat didn’t help at all. I’ll give them another try, but this time was just… barely above average.
