Come for the patio, stay for the hash
Bowery understands that your brunch conundrum isn’t about sweet versus savory but rather breakfast versus lunch -- which is why they’ve divided the menu accordingly. Brekkie choices include baked stuffed French toast, country fried steak with eggs, and an aptly named Hangover Breakfast Bowl (corned beef hash, poached eggs, toast). On the lunchtime side of things, there’s seafood chowder, two different burgers, and even nachos -- a guaranteed enticement for that brunch cynic in your life. If the weather is even halfway decent, patio time is mandatory -- how better to savor your hangover-slaying Pamola Riff (tequila, pink grapefruit liqueur, grapefruit juice, club soda, lime, salt)?
Where to find the brunch counterpart to nachos
Have train wreck omelet, will travel directly to the couch afterwards. Ashmont has translated its famed train wreck fries into an epic morning meal: an open-faced omelet topped with hand-cut fries, jack cheese, bacon, jalapeño, scallion, and sour cream. The rest of the menu is a deep dive into brunch’s savory best-ofs, from huevos rancheros to steak and eggs to a Benedict done three ways (we love the homemade sausage as our protein of choice). And sure, shakshuka fever currently grips home cooks, but sometimes you crave a kitchen’s expert take on the comfort classic.
