The Brindle Room

Stopped by this new restaurant in the East Village last night for dinner. Great little spot with some serious cooking. Loved the spreads on the menu, think I might have dreamed about the Brandade spread last night! came with delicious chunks of bread, coated with olive oil and grilled. lentil spread was also really delicious. have a feeling the chicken liver spread is excellent but probably very rich. We sampled a couple more small plates the beets and broccoli rabe, enjoye both (we were on a bit of an eating mania last night!) Main course had the cod which sat on fava beans, asparagus and scallions (??) in a broth, delicious but maybe a tad too salty. My husband liked the pasta w/peas. also tried the choc chip cookies with choc mousse sandwiched in between -- would have preferred ice cream in the middle, mousse was a bit overly sweet for me. thought the Banana bread pudding w/ice cream was the perfect comfort food ending. Restaurant has a great neighborhood feel. curious to know if anyone else has been?

    Happy to hear a good review -- I read about their duck confit poutine (!) so I've been meaning to go there to try that.. Thanks for the review!

      I get my hair cut next door and they couldn't be nicer. Delivery right to the salon, on proper plates. Sampled their burger and fries which were great. They were giving away Free Pitcher of Sangria coupons with food purchase of $15. We tried both white and red and they were delicious and full of fruit
