So in an effort to bring you more content I went brunching this past Saturday with a friend. We went to Maysville over on 26th in the Flatiron area and I must say, its definitely a little gem. Pretty obscure as there was just a small sign above the place, very kinda speak easyish. Which given that they are a whiskey joint (also a huge part as to why I picked it). So the interior is very straightforward with the exception of the bar, which kind of made me think of the grand bars you used to find say circa 1940’s and earlier. Wood, marble and glass to give it that refined industrial feel, which if you read the ditty on the site its named after the port that shipped out some whiskey.
So my friend ordered the Chef’s breakfast which entailed eggs and meat and I got the French toast. We both had been drinking the night prior so we needed some heavy starches to bind to the alcohol. I got regular coffee which had a nice chicory taste, great to cut though the syrup. I topped off my meal with roasted potatoes, and sweet babay jesus they were soooooo tasty. The French toast was a thick brioche covered with ricotta and fruit compote. Super tasty and flavors worked well together and it was more than enough to leave us filled. And did I mention the potatoes? Must be an Eastern European thing, because I can’t get enough of potatoes, and these were small reds roasted with a hint of salt. Like I would go back just for those bad boys.
Overall we both agreed we’d go back as it was super chill and the ambiance was pretty low key which is nice. Plus the food was delish so I’d say 4 out of 5 forks. So if you’re in the Flatiron area go peep it.
