Drunch Break: Glasserie

Drunch Break: Glasserie

Welcome back to Drunch Break, the column where we demand that you get drunk and eat brunch ASAP. You’ve probably noticed that since The Habitat stopped serving brunch, North Greenpoint has been sorely lacking in places to stumble into on a Sunday morning, eat some goddamnned eggs and pound Bloody Marys. Thankfully Glasserie recently opened, providing a Mediterranean mecca for curbing your weekend hangover.

Know Before You Go: The restaurant is not super close to a subway, so if you’re a lazy person, take a cab. Otherwise, you can take the G train to India St. and walk your out-of-shape ass blocks. Just follow your nose to Newtown Creek. Thankfully for me, Glasserie is a hop, skip and a jump away from my apartment, making it easy for me to enjoy it while being both cheap and out-of-shape.

The Ambiance: This waterfront establishment sits at the Northern most tip of Brooklyn, and gets its name from the former glass factory it inhabits. The space is big, bright, airy, and filled with succulents that I really wanted to steal. There’s definitely a modern, minimalist vibe going on and Trading Spaces’ Vern Yip would totally approve. Are you a person who is constantly dropping your silverware on the floor? If so, you’ll love Glasserie because there’s a whole bucket of silverware sitting on every table, just waiting for your clumsy hands.

The Drinks: If you’re not a believer in the hair that bites the dog theory, there is the option of delicious, fresh squeezed orange juice. For normal people, there is a decent cocktail menu, and most drinks are $9. The Bloody Marys are killer, and I tried a really refreshing rum drink but quickly forgot the name because I was drunk.

The Food: The seasonal menu features plates that are small, inventive and flavorful. We started with the savory cheese pastries which were flaky and crunchy. Pretty, pretty good.

For my main course, I got the Merguez and Sunnys. The fresh eggs were very flavorful and covered with weird seeds. The Merguez (an African sausage) was super tasty and unlike anything I’ve tried before.

My vegetarian husband got the shakshuka eggs, which involved a spicy tomato broth and homemade bread. It left him feeling very satisfied.

Glasserie is a much needed addition to North Brooklyn and will quickly become a neighborhood staple for people like me who hate waiting for a table and love eating good brunch.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I do believe all of the concepts you've presented in your post. They're very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
