SMALL BITE: For a meal made in well, pig heaven, Breslin Bar & Dining Room at Ace Hotel New York could be your ace in the hole. It features “nose-to-tail” culinary creations that are rich, salty and roasted. You can even get a whole pig served right up to your table. Plenty of other meat-centric dishes, too.
SIGNATURE DISHES: Inspired breakfast, lunch and dinner choices, including a full English breakfast of fried eggs, pork sausage, blood sausage, bacon, tomato and mushrooms; a chargrilled lamb burger with feta, cumin mayo and thrice-cooked chips — a house favorite; the Perfect Scotch egg; razor clams on the plancha, with serrano ham and garlic aioli; and a roster of delectable evening puddings.
DISH FROM DINERS: “Cool, dark, and homey, The Breslin feels like a spot inspired by the young foodie hipster brigade–think Mumford & Sons meets Williamsburg’s finest, with a dash of 18th century England thrown in for good measure.”
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Co-owner and award-winning Chef April Bloomfield has blazed a cooking trail throughout London and Northern Ireland, including working in the kitchens of Kensington Place. On Sunday nights, The Breslin offers a Fried Chicken Feast for between 5 and 12 guests, featuring duck-fat fried chicken with habanero and gorgonzola sauces. Boiled peanuts fried in pork fat are a favorite house snack.
