Brunch: The Barrel

I stopped by The Barrel in the East Village for brunch on Saturday and was very excited to see that there was no wait!  Wohoo!!
Inside of The Barrel
I liked the inside of the restaurant - calming feel with lots of wood, some greenery, and curved decorations.  I guess it was meant to mimic the inside of a barrel?

Looking at the menu, there is a brunch menu for $12.95 which includes a brunch entree and a drink - what a steal!  There's also a lot to choose from on the brunch menu so that makes it exciting for me.  I'm usually an egg gal for brunch but lately I've been feeling more lunch hehe

The brunch menu includes your traditional items as well as Barrel specific creations such as the Galette.  My dining compadres and I ordered a pretty good variety to share:

Galette Breton Complet - buckwheat crepe, gruyere cheese, eggs, arugula, smoked ham
3 Egg Omlette
Roasted Vegetable Flatbread
Special Flatbread of the Day
All our brunch items were served with a side salad and a small cup of fruit salad.  Egg dishes also came with a side of potatoes.  My dining compadres and I enjoyed all our food - I especially loved the wide selection available on the menu and the affordable prices.  The no waiting was a bonus!  The Barrel is a great spot for a casual no frills weekend brunch - I can't wait to come back and try more.
