Brunch is one of my guilty pleasures so I will jump at any chance I get to enjoy a morning of good food, good friends and mimosas.
I’ve been wittering on today trying to say the restaurant name without completely botching it. Try saying that 5 times in a row. (buschenshank, buschenshack, bushawhat, bushensomething, busch)
We had an absolutely beautiful day out and the windows were open allowing for maximum ability of people watching.
Buschenschank is a tavern mainly specializing in German food and run by local farmers in Brooklyn.
The atmosphere is very relaxing and airy inside the restaurant.
I immediately bee-lined it to the tall tables (the cool tables) next to the window with a great view of the kitchen and outside.
With your brunch you receive a complimentary bloody mary, mimosa, coffee or tea.
Or you can always cool yourself down with a very large beer like this guy did…
You can guess which one I chose.
My friend had the Voveti Prosecco champagne with an orange blossom aroma, ripe peach and crisp finish.
To start, we ordered a large pretzel with bier cheese and spicy mustard, it was ambrosial.
I ended up going for more of a lunch type meal and had The Harvester, which came with sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, mushroom, grana padano, mozzarella and fresh basil.
My main was delicious and fresh atop a tasty crisp dough.
Jon ordered the Di Verde which was piled high with fresh chopped spinach, tomato, red onion, and goat cheese served on top of a Margarita pizza and finished off with pesto, garlic and grana padano.
The fresh flavors danced delightfully together with each bite.
You can find this German restaurant at 320 Court Street in Brooklyn, NY. Hop in for a cold brew at the bar or enjoy a large pretzel with some good company.
We spent the remainder of the afternoon walking around enjoying one of the first sunny and warm days in New England this season and hopping into a few antique shops. We also found a pretty cool coffee shop you’ll be hearing about later this week.
