late brunch at the Breslin

we sat up on the balcony, overlooking the kitchen where Tyler is Sous Chef

we had a great view of the action. Tyler gave me a play-by-play. That's Chef Peter Cho standing behind the counter.

Poached egg with curried lentils, yoghurt and cilantro. YUM! We watched Executive Chef/ Owner April Bloomfield herself make my meal.

our dessert-- Eton Mess (coconut ice cream, grapefruit and meringue)

The Breslin features an English "meat-centric," "nose-to-tail" menu. That means that they do their best to use every little bit of that pig.

I finally had an opportunity to eat where Tyler started working a few weeks ago-- The Breslin. We had a very English breakfast, complete with dessert. Here's an ABC Nightline video clip where owner/ chef April Bloomfield talks about British food and what she hopes to accomplish with her two restaurants, The Breslin and The Spotted Pig.
The Breslin is inside a boutique hotel called The Ace Hotel (which I featured here on my blog about a week ago). Opening Ceremony is opening a new location attached to the lobby of the Ace, and they were busily preparing for the grand opening tonight.
*Additional note: Photos from the opening have been posted and can be viewed here. What a crew!
We also finally saw Avatar, and it surprised me-- I was impressed! Then we walked around Macy's Herald Square for awhile since it was so cold outside but we didn't want to go home yet :)
