Brunch Review: Piquant

Piquant, meaning pleasantly stimulating or interesting and provocative, makes me wish I still lived in Brooklyn. My mom, aunts and I visited this Park Slope restaurant yesterday to celebrate my aunt Kosi’s birthday. It’s a nice space with pretty decor, but the garden seating outside was just beautiful. The pre-fix menu (which of course included mimosas) left something to be desired, for me at least being that I’m not a fan of eggs but the regular menu made up for that. I had the crab cake AND the tuna sliders (they’re the perfect size if your looking for a light meal), and they were both delicious. A few spoonfuls of the corn chowder my mom ordered were awesome as well, though a tiny bit spicy.

My aunts and mom decided we should all come back here one day at night, the garden trees were uplit so I’m sure it’s beautiful scene. All in all it was a great atmosphere, even the dessert was delicious and I don’t even like churros! This may be added to the list of places I frequent, and the word ‘piquant’ is definitely going to be  added to my vocabulary 🙂

One thing I will mention is the bathroom didn’t fit the rest of the building at all. It was uncomfortably small, not in the slightest bit pretty and one stall had a dead waterbug in it! Hopefully by the time I revisit this place they’ll have that under control. Check out their menu and make reservations here
