Where to Brunch This Weekend: Greenwich ProjectBy Anne Roderique Jones
January 17, 2014
Greenwich Project, a beauty of a brownstone in Greenwich Village, is serving up one incredible brunch. Executive Chef Carmine Di Giovanni whips up a $25 prix fixe menu that starts with freshly baked scones; continues with entrées like an elegant truffle egg salad with toast points or the decedent pork belly hash with a poached egg and chipotle hollandaise. And there’s something for the traditionalist, too, like lemon ricotta pancakes with bourbon maple butter and berries or a savory Eggs Benedict with ham and housemade cheddar biscuits.
Because this is a Mulberry Project brainchild, the cocktails are solid. Forget the mimosa and belinis - cocktails here are upgraded, like the La Maquina Verde, made with fresh-pressed green apple and kale that's boozed up with tequila and fire water bitters. Or the What's Up Doc that’s swirled with fresh carrot, celery juice, ginger,vodka and orange bitters. The yin and yang of these boozy juices are exactly what you want to drink with your mid-morning meal. Even better: Every brunch comes with a complimentary drink (212-253-9335).
