Brunch at The Brindle Room

The tiny little Brindle Room was absolutely bustling the morning we arrived for brunch.  We didn't have a reservation so we ended up sitting at the bar.   It's not exactly the most comfortable seating but we were really craving their food like this delicious Kale Salad with pecorino and golden raisins.

The raisins gave the bitter greens a sweet edge and made it incredibly satisfying. Of course no brunch at the Brindle Room would be completely satisfying without ordering the burger.

Their thick Steakhouse Burger has a fantastic salty char on the top and rich caramelized onions.  It's one of my favorite burgers in the city. 

The only thing we both found a little odd was the music playing in the background...It was a mix of songs including "Everybody Hurts" and "Runaway Train"...not exactly the lively, upbeat music one usually associates with brunch.  Maybe someone had a bad morning:)
