“Brunch is Brooklyn’s favorite meal — we are thrilled to be able to offer it. And, let’s face it — nothing beats drinking a Bloody Mary on a Brooklyn sidewalk.” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager.
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Misdemeanor, the bar and lounge located in NU Hotel Brooklyn’s lobby, has just announced that it is now serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning at 11:30 a.m., in addition to its all day offerings of tapas and specialty cocktails. Now, guests and Brooklyn neighbors can enjoy an innovative brunch menu that offers traditional fare with a twist − Brooklyn brunching has never been better.
“We’ve only been open since May, but from day one everyone has asked about brunch,” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager. “Brunch is Brooklyn’s favorite meal — we are thrilled to be able to offer it. And, let’s face it — nothing beats drinking a Bloody Mary on a Brooklyn sidewalk.”
A tasty breakfast sandwich of Bacon and Cheese Scrambled Brioche made with organic eggs, or a designer burger made with three cheeses − the delicious trifecta of cheddar, jack and mozzarella − are just a few of the new additions. A selection of brunch cocktails has also been added, including a Bloody Mary concocted with the Employees Only blend of spicy tomato and cardamom.
The menus at Misdemeanor, which opened in May of 2012, are the result of collaboration between two New York City food and beverage stars: Master Mixologist Milos Zica of Employees Only and Chef Jehangir Mehta of the highly acclaimed Graffiti and Mehtaphor restaurants. “Chef Mehta and I coordinated our menu to make sure we had cocktails that would match the food very well for a complete experience,” said Zica of the creative process.
Zica gained notoriety when he was chosen as New York City’s representative for the NBC reality show “On the Rocks.” He designed all 10 of the bar’s specialty cocktails with flavors as diverse as the spirits used to make them. Misdemeanor’s signature drink, the “NU York Thymes” is made with a delectable combination of tequila, St. Germain, Gosling’s Ginger Beer, raspberry puree herbs, and ginger and fruit wisking. The cocktails, which are made with only the freshest ingredients, rotate seasonally.
Mehta also attained celebrity status through national television appearances, including the Food Network shows “Iron Chef America” and “The Next Iron Chef.” For Misdemeanor’s all-day menu, Mehta created a number of specialty tapas, including Chili Thyme Cashews, Mustard Seed Shrimp with a Cucumber and Yogurt Sauce and Beef Braised Pineapple, Lamb and delicious Pork Belly Buns.
The food and drink are served against the backdrop of a new modern space designed by the Riscala Agnese Design Group, who also worked on Johnny Utah’s in Rockefeller Center and Philadelphia’s Triumph Brewery. The design has a modern industrial style that is utilitarian in function. Every item in the cafe was custom designed and made by local artisans.
Misdemeanor is open daily from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. and brunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays. Misdemeanor offers both lounge and sidewalk seating and is available for special events.
