About two weeks ago, I got to see my friend Lisa who was in town working on an urban art restoration project. We went out to brunch in Williamsburg at Le Barricou (http://lebarricouny.com/menus/brunch.pdf). I had made a couple trips down to Brooklyn before and remembered that much like the rest of New York, there’s some great restaurants.
To start, Lisa got a spicy shrimp bloody mary. I don’t normally drink bloody marys but this one looked pretty good. The waiter gave us plenty of time to look at the menu but sold both of us on the daily brunch special: a lobster omelette with goat cheese, shallot, jam and dragon something. I just called it the dragon omelette from that point forward. I also really enjoyed the atmosphere and the ambiance of this joint. The lighting was really neat and the furniture and décor really added to the overall experience. I highly recommend this place for anyone who’s in town. Good food, good people, good service, great company. What a fun Sunday it was.
