Our party of 5 was told we would be seated at 9:00 or so, and were seated at 11:00, in a booth for 4. No free drinks, just some scraps for appetizers. Food so-so. Unimpressed.

no reservations

Despite what the description says above, The Breslin isn't taking reservations for the large “Algonquin Round Table.” Seems somewhat ridiculous to expect parties of 10 or more to not plan ahead, but there you go.

New with the emphasis on meat. Excellent variety topped off with delicious sweets.

Excellent menu with innovative choices. Combination of hip/comfort food. Lovely presentation and unusual, lively flavors. You want to try everything on the menu but don't miss the leek/onion tart or the chocolate donuts.

If You're a Vegetarian, Don't Bother - They Don't Want Your Business!

I made the mistake of trying to get a vegetarian bite to eat at the Breslin Lobby Bar. Closest thing they offer is a Grilled 3-Cheese sandwich on the bar menu that includes ham. Seems simple enough just to leave off the meat, but this is something that the chef was absolutely UNWILLING to do. I can understand not wanting to compromise your intricately-conceived gourmet creation - but get over yourself, it's just a $16 grilled cheese. When our bill (finally) came, an 18% gratuity had been included - perhaps they know that they provide such little service that they have to charge for it up front. It's just another over-priced hipster hangout that's more concerned with their looks than substance or their guests.
