I took my brother out to Schiller’s Liquor Bar for lunch one Saturday afternoon after walking around the city looking for a place to take us without a reservation. Clinton St. Baking Company said we’d have to wait TWO HOURS, so we walked over to Schiller’s on the LES for brunch. We were seated pretty quickly and got right to ordering. My brother order eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce and hash browns:
Schiller’s hollandaise sauce was really creamy and delicious and tasted so good with the potatoes, the eggs, and the bread. It was AMAZING!
I ordered waffles with berries. Last time we went to Schiller’s, I ordered the same thing and they came with grapes….I HATE warm grapes! This time, I specifically asked the waiter if there were only berries with the waffles or if it came with other fruit…he told me it was only berries and this is what I got:
WHY DID HE LIE?! This time, I actually didn’t really enjoy my waffles. 1. because there were so many freaking grapes and 2. because the syrup tasted like there was too much liquor mixed with it. BOO! They did taste very fresh – like they were just pressed in the kitchen.
Chris ordered cheeseburger with fries:
Good, nothing memorable though. The service was okay (a bunch of out of work actors/models/artists) and my brother enjoyed his stay in the city, so overall, it was a good backup place to go for lunch. Not a place I’d look forward to all week like Pearl Oyster Bar or Balthazar, but a solid restaurant to take friends.
