Ken and I had a little staycation a few weeks back while my mom was in town – we stayed at a hotel near his office in midtown and ended up exploring the area while we were staying at the hotel. We took my mom out for brunch at Lexington Brass before we went shopping (a very successful trip even though I didn’t end up buying anything). Lexington Brass is a nice change of pace compared to the other stuffy restaurants in the area. My mom was in the mood for omelets and ended up ordering a Western-style omelet with a salad and multi-grain toast:
Ken ordered an egg white omelet with a side of chicken sausage:
I ordered a kale salad, but it tasted so off that I had to return it (and didn’t have a chance to snap the pic before I sent it back to the kitchen). My mom’s omelet and Ken’s omelet were both really good with a good combination of proteins and veggies, but Ken’s chicken sausage was not that good and I had to send my dish back so I ended up not having anything substantial to eat for lunch.
There were a lot of people enjoying bloody mary’s and mimosas during brunch (and a large celebration for someone’s birthday nearby). Ken’s been there a few other times in the past and has always said that their food is good (but not great). I would agree – not a place I’d go back to for food, but the drinks are good and it’s a place I’d go back to for happy hour only.
