Map MeadesPlace: Meade’s

Location: Financial District, 22 Peck Slip (between Pearl St. & Water St.)

Mimosa Rating:

2 mimosas

The scoop: Marissa and I were looking for an outdoor brunch spot and we figured brunch near the South Street Seaport would be a good option. Unfortunately, the seaport has been a ghost town since Hurricane Sandy. Sadly, a lot of the restaurants aren’t open and there are limited options.

Viva Seaport!

Meade’s seemed like a cool place to brunch since they have outdoor seating right outside the pub and a laid-back vibe. If you want to bring a dog, the restaurant is accommodating as they had a bowl of water for a pooch. The servers seemed friendly.

When we walked inside, the bar took up pretty much the entire ground floor. A couple of people were dining on the bar stools. I was told Meade’s has an area upstairs, but I didn’t check it out. A cool thing about Meade’s is that there are board games you can play while you are brunching.

Bottoms up: Meade’s has a brunch deal for $26. This includes one entrée plus unlimited bloody Marys, mimosas and screwdrivers. If you don’t want the unlimited option, each entrée costs $12 and includes coffee, tea and juice.

Being that we weren’t going to drink enough mimosas to get our money’s worth, we decided to stick with beer. Meade’s doesn’t have any on tap, but they did have a decent selection of bottles.

Marissa really likes this beer, and since it is rarely offered, she decided to go with it. In my opinion the beer is a little too sweet, but if that’s what you are looking for, it’s a good option, especially during the summer. 

Abita Purple Haze 

I love wheat beer and you can’t go wrong with a wheat beer on a hot sunny day. Abita is a great option because it is brewed with raspberries so you can enjoy a slight fruity taste. 

Chew on this:

The waitress said this was the most popular brunch dish, so I took that into consideration when ordering my meal. For a popular dish, I expected more. The eggs were good, but the chorizo was a little hard to chew. There was an abundance of crispy tator tots and they flaked apart when I lifted them with the fork. They were tasty with some ketchup. In my opinion, guacamole would have been a nice addition to this dish. 

Mango walnut pancakes

The pancakes were pretty light and thin. The mango and walnuts were cut up and mixed with the batter. Marissa thought it was a good option for somebody not too hungry. I took a piece of bacon and liked that it was thick and crispy.

The final bite: Meade’s is a cool place if you want to hang out, play some games and have some food. Don’t expect to leave thinking you had the best brunch ever, but with the other pros, Meade’s can be a fun place for brunch.
