After reading glowing review of the star chef (Mrs.Bloomfield) and her properties, my wife and I decided to try this restaurant recently. I will save you drama and graphic description of the barely eatable food, just to summarize that you need to be completely drunk...More

Breslin is loud, fun and expensive, and delicious. Friendly if harassed server. The Stilton Pie is not to be missed , not the Caesar Salads. Burgers also good and the polenta as well. Upstairs is a tad quieter. Crowded.

Noted chefs put this place together. Smallish menu. Standard prices. Superficially foodie hipster. Come on a Sunday and get the med-rare lamb burger. Dark and woody atmosphere. Kinda restoration hardware vibe which is so lame. Tables crowded together. Music just a touch below nightclub level...More

Went for a late Sunday brunch and the place was busy. Noisy yes, but not to the point of bothering us. Service was a little on the slow side, but the food more than made up for it. Everything we ordered was well prepared. The...More
