Thanks to my friend Beans and her bf (thanks AOrf!), Steph and I had the opportunity to enjoy brunch at Maialino, a Danny Meyer restaurant located right across from the Gramercy Park. Get ready – it’s a feast for the eyes – and tummy.
A variety of delicious house-made pastries.
Fried Artichokes & Anchovy Sauce | Tomato Risotto Croquettes & Mozzarella | Potato Skins, Pecorino & Black Pepper
Tonnarelli a Cacio e Pepe [Pecorino & Pepper Pasta]
Baked Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce & Guanciale
Homemade Sausage [on the house, thank you Maialino]
Cappuccino | Affogato
I have since been back twice to Maialino, and every experience has been wonderful – really fantastic service, delicious food, and impeccable execution – the place runs like a well oiled machine. I wouldn’t expect anything of inferior quality from Danny Meyer. And though not pictured, the bar offers a good selection of wines and spirits, as well as unusual, creative, and craftily mixed cocktails. Maialino is definitely on my go-to list for delicious food and I can’t wait for my next return.
