When we tell our friends we want to meet at a bar, it usually isn’t for the food. Get ready to surprise your buds when you ask them to join you for Sunday Funday at Due West, which now serves a fabulous brunch. This West Village spot boasts a pedigree that includes Le Bilboquet and Locanda Verde as well as artwork from ACA Galleries to elevate the cozy, blue-velvet lined space.
Besides the expected Bloody Mary, the cocktails at Due West scream brunch. The Nitro Boost combines cold brew with vanilla and bourbon, and The Nuni spikes a lager with hot sauce, cucumber, and lime to get you going. Start the meal with oysters or the addictive fried chicken bites with yuzu and honey before you move on to your main courses.
Some friends on a health kick? Try the new berry topped chia bowl or truffled avocado toast. Need eggs? There’s baked eggs with spicy tomato sauce or a classic breakfast sandwich. Looking for lunch? Bite into the fried chicken sandwich with house pickles or a bacon topped, dry aged burger. But whatever you do, do not miss out on the show stopping pancake, which comes in a cast iron skillet topped with whipped ricotta and butter maple toffee. The crispy edges and hint of citrus make this dish a crowd pleaser, even for those who are off carbs.
