Bruckner Bar and Grill Lives Up to the Hype

The missus, the little one, and I decided to celebrate Mother's Day with brunch at the Bruckner Bar and Grill down in Mott Haven. We were not disappointed. It was well worth the quick ride from Bedford Park.

The atmosphere was laid back and the place was filled with what seemed to be regulars. You got a real feel that BBG is a neighborhood anchor - and that people love it (with good reason!). Another huge bonus, at least for us, is that it is very baby friendly.

The food was fantastic. We started with drinks - a mimosa for the missus and a bloody mary for me. They were both delicious and affordable at only $3/each. For brunch the missus had french toast, with fruit and chocolate and peanut butter sauce. I had the eggs benedict, which were done to perfection. My dish came with little home fry cubes and a green salad.

The most impressive thing about the whole brunch was when the bill came and it was only $26! The only dish over $10 on the brunch menu is the steak and eggs (and that's only $12.50).

All things considered we were beyond impressed; we'll be back down there for some brunches in the future (or maybe with some babysitting lined up, a dinner - we're looking at you grandma).

Bruckner Bar and Grill has the official BoogieDowner stamp of approval. In fact we're already planning our Marathon watching lunch there in November...

Hey there, BoogieDowner, Doreen here! Remember me, the one who moved into the building you spotlighted some time ago (at 37 Bruckner Blvd.)? Still totally loving this building, by the way. Have even gotten used to the stairs, despite the new obstacle of wearing a knee brace and using a cane (long story).

I heartily agree with your opinion of the Bruckner Bar & Grill. The food there is fabulous (on your next visit, try the Grilled Chicken Club with avocado - it is offically my favorite sandwich on the planet). My 14 year old loves their food and he's a major pain in the butt when it comes to grub (not that you'd know it from looking at him). Manhattan eats at non-Manhattan prices. Gotta love it.

You should let me know the next time you're in the hood. Meeting you guys would be worth a hobble down the stairs!
