Unfortunately, Stone Street Tavern and Bailey Brasserie wouldn’t take reservations, so I joined my Camp Interactive running team at Lilly O’Brien’s in TriBeCa / Financial District for an early morning brunch after the NYC Half Marathon!
Winning! (and original..?)
This was my second half marathon ever.. and ran it in a whopping 1:46:25!
Toot toot. Did you hear that.. it was me.. tooting my own horn. To bring me back down to reality.. here are some funny photos of me looking like hell at the NYC Half Marathon. So I digress, my parents and boyfriend met me at the finish line for kegs and eggs! (Well.. mimosas). Here is what we thought:
Water, Bloody and 2 Mimosas..
We arrived just before the rest of the crowd from the Half Marathon. Luckily. we had a reservation for 50 so the entire team could come and bring their supporters. We were early so just had a table for 4 and quickly ordered brunch with our
complimentary cocktail. Clearly, all I needed to hydrate was right here: Some water, 2 mimosas AND a bloody mary! The drinks were weak and small.. but to be honest, who wants to drink that much after being awake since 6 am?
Egg Whites with Asparagus and Artichokes
The food was mediocre. This was an Irish Pub, so my dad ordered the Irish Breakfast. Not only was that just ok, I had the egg white omelet with asparagus and artichoke, but honestly, I am not a huge fan of artichoke. The boyfriend ate the potato pancakes and eggs, but these potato pancakes just don’t compare to Essex.
Potato Pancake Breakfast
Last Call: This place was great because we sat and ordered right away, but under any different circumstances I wouldn’t go back. But, I bet this place was great for St. Patrick’s Day!
Brunch Review: 2.5 out of 5 mimosas
