Brunch at Brazen Fox

Mr. T and I stopped in for brunch last week at the brand new Brazen Fox. This two story bar/restaurant sits right off of Union Square and is the perfect spot to begin an East Village crawl.  The bar has over 20 beers on draft with a few standouts like Founders Red Rye and Captain Lawrence Winter.

Mr. T began with a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale while I enjoyed the complimentary mimosa which comes with every entree.

The menu has some interesting options like a Sesame Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich made with fig preserves and OMG I stopped by tavern on Jane to request a table in the middle for tomorrow and they double booked! Whole restaurant has been reserved for a private party tomorrow! I'm scouring the west village for another spot.a Fritatta with red peppers and feta.

I wasn't super hungry so we ended up splitting an order of the Pork Belly Grits.

The grits were smothered in cheddar cheese with hunks of fried potato and egg layered on top.  It was a quite a hearty dish complete with a side of toast.

We both thought it was pretty good but I think we're done with pork belly for a many hunks of fat can one eat in the morning really?

Overall the Brazen Fox is a nice addition to the East Village.  The atmosphere is comfortable, the staff were friendly and the front area has a big room with surrounding windows that's excellent people watching.  This is a place you could settle into for a while for sure.
