The Village is full of decent options for weekend brunch. But, most of them can feel a bit old-fashioned and certainly not trendy. There are only so many over-cooked eggs one can have with unlimited water-downed mimosas on a Sunday.
Greenwich Steakhouse (62 Greenwich Avenue) proves not just to be different, but genuinely refreshing when it comes to New Yorkers’ favorite mealtime. From the moment you walk in the doors there is a light, airy vibe that takes away the stress of street pounding on the concrete jungle outside. This is not just a steakhouse – this is an oasis.
Beyond the fabulous décor is also a stunning presentation of high-class service. Staff is dressed smartly in wardrobe that could compete with anyone on the catwalk during Fashion Week. Then there are the drinks – oh, the fabulous drinks of Greenwich Steakhouse. Served in stunning glassware and with a touch of mixology genius, get ready to indulge in some of the best drinks in town with a spicy Greenwich Bloody, a sweet Mimosa and tantalizing Aperol Spritz.
Entrée selections are presented with keen beauty. Challah French Toast with fresh berries and phenomenal jams is divine. If you like Lobster Riosotto you will be blown away by the perfect texture of this dish. The sweetness added by the lobster is well-balanced and established with care. French Onion Soup Gratinee is hearty and filling in all the right ways.
Meat lovers will adore the Applewood Smoked Bacon. And, for those looking for a healthier option the Soup n’ Salad is perfect. The combination of a creamy lobster bisque with a cleverly tangy shaved baby artichoke salad is a great choice.
With the fantastic food also comes an ambiance of bliss. You just might not want to leave this amazing vibe in the venue. Chef Victor Chavez along with Benny Gocaj have made the best of dining happen in an exquisite three-story West Village townhouse. After an impressive career with Smith & Wollensky, Chavez couldn’t escape the dream of opening his own restaurant. The dream became a reality and the result shared with the public is worthy of grand applause.
Prices for brunch are incredibly reasonable with plates on the average side and a wonderful drink special called Make it a Boozy has unlimited cocktails for $21. The restaurant is open Sunday to Wednesday 5pm – 10:30pm; Thursday to Saturday 5pm – 11:30pm; Brunch Saturday & Sunday 11am – 3pm; and Happy Hour Monday to Friday 5pm – 7pm.
