The Breslin Bar & Dining Room
New York, NY 10001
Village Voice's Description
Chef April Bloomfield's project The Breslin Bar & Dining Room is a pub connected to a hip hotel in Manhattan's gritty wholesale district, a darkened maze of dining rooms with a barroom up front, slinging some of the richest (you may also say "greasiest") food around. The stuffed pig leg for two is one of the most over-the-top selections, but you may also groove on the exceptional lamb burger, which comes with a novel cumin mayo on the side. Other menu highlights include head cheese fried in little cubes, raw oyster service with pickle-juice mignonette, and a seared sea-bass filet that recalls Bloomfield's happy but short-lived days at the John Dory.
Tips from foursquare
This is the place to tweet and be seen. Their meaty lunch menu includes terrines, ham, sea bass and steak, but the most popular entree is the lamb burger ($17).
If you want a reservation, come with a party of eight for April Bloomfield’s whole roasted pig dinner.
You can try two Where to Eat 2011 picks under one roof; after dinner here head across the Ace lobby to the new John Dory for a dessert of the excellent eccles cake. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
Recommended: Scrumpets, onion soup, Caesar salad, terrines, lamb burger, pork belly, pig's foot, fries, cabbage and bacon, sticky toffee pudding, Eton mess.
I love April Bloomfield’s new place. Really hip, and the food is amazing. A perfect lunch or brunch spot while out running around in NYC. -Susan Feniger, Top Chef
