If you are looking for a brunch deal that isn’t all you can drink because you want to be productive on a Sunday, consider Fiddlesticks in Greenwich Village. Â Caryn and I decided to try it for brunch with a few of our girlfriends last weekend because it offered a fabulous deal. Â For $10, we were able to get two alcoholic drinks plus a brunch entree. Â Since we weren’t trying to be too boozy on a Sunday, we thought this was the perfect spot.
We will warn you – the menu is kind of limited, but if omelet or eggs benedict is up your alley, then the menu will suffice. Â I kicked off brunch with a mimosa and ordered the eggs benedict. Â The portions aren’t huge – i.e., don’t expect a side of fries – but they are definitely filling. Â The omelet had a little bit of a bigger portion with a side salad and two pieces of toast. Â I found the eggs benedict to be really good, the eggs were the way I liked them, runny enough so I could soak my English muffin in the yolk (I know, this is how poached eggs are supposed to be, Â but lately the yolk has been hard in my eggs benedict).
I will Â warn you – the service was just okay. If you are looking for a server to check in on you, that doesn’t happen at Fiddlesticks. Â However, if you want to be able to loiter and catch up with your friends without feeling rushed, Fiddlesticks may be the perfect place for you. Â Better yet, if you still feel like a few drinks after brunch, beers, wells and house wine are only $4, indoors only (not a problem in the winter).The Basics Name: Fiddlesticks Location: 56 Greenwich Avenue Who to bring: Friends, particularly if you want some time to sit and catch up Price: Incredibly economical, $ Overall: It’s a good deal with good food. 4 Stars.
