Brass Monkey Brunch

We decided to go and check out the new Highline Saturday so we headed over to the Meatpacking district.

On the walk there we decided we stop off at Brass Monkey to grab some food.

Although it was slightly rainy we went in and asked for a table on the roof.

Luckily they had a small awning covering the tables against the wall and only two other ladies were eating there.

We took a seat and ordered up some drinks.

Yay!! This is what I like to see. Sometimes I get sick of the usual brunch mimosa. Why can’t they offer something else?

Here they offered a complimentary Bloody Mary, Mimosa, Beer or Wine.

What a great deal! So I got a Chardonnay and Mr. T ordered a Stella.

Okay it might not be perfect brunch etiquette but that’s what I wanted to start off my day.

So we sipped our drinks and looked out at sprinkling rain and the calm water until our entrees arrived.

I ordered the Spinach and Goat Cheese Salad.

This actually was supposed to come with some roasted beets but I asked for it plain.

I guess the salad would be a little more exciting with the beets but this was just what I wanted.

The goat cheese crumbles were super creamy and it came tossed in an excellent balsamic vinegar dressing.

Mr. T ordered their Chicken Sandwich.

This was excellent! A grilled Chicken cutlet stacked on a Basil Sourdough Roll with fresh Mozzarella, roasted tomato and pesto.

The fries it came with were super skinny and just crisp enough for dunking in some ketchup.

All of this food and drinks included came to $12.95 a person.

Not a bad deal in this part of town and a nice relaxing view as well!

I love this place during the early parts of the day. At night it can get a little…err…let’s just say I don’t always enjoy the crowd at night.

But for $12.95 this is one of the best brunch deals going on in town.
