West Village European Bistro Clarkson Launches Seasonal Festive Brunch
On a cold Sunday afternoon downtown, what better place to stumble on than a cozy new brunch destination?
Clarkson, a West Village European-inspired restaurant known for its innovative cocktail program, just introduced its own signature brunch and live music which will take place Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
The menu includes savory and autumn-themed entrées, such as pumpkin pancakes with Heritage Acres bacon and cinnamon and brown soft polenta with poached eggs and house-made sausage.
“My inspiration behind the brunch menu was to take a seasonal, fresh and unique approach to classic brunch items,” Rebecca Weitzman, executive chef at Clarkson, told New York Smash. “Our two breakfast bruschettas, for example, are modern plays on classic Benedicts. The lobster bruschetta is the owner, Georges’ favorite, and quickly becoming our signature brunch dish at Clarkson. It features a half of a fresh Maine lobster on pressed ciabatta bread with griddled tomatoes, poached eggs an olive oil béarnaise and tarragon.”
In addition to Clarkson’s original dishes, there is a large selection of cheeses, house-made charcuterie and raw bar. You can view the menu below.
Clarkson is the newest restaurant from The Forgeois Group, a restaurant group owned by Georges Forgeois based in New York City.
