Once I learned that Lexington Brass served Gluten Free Pumpkin Spiced Waffles I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long to try them.
Last weekend I had brunch at Lexington Brunch when Jeremy’s parents were in town. This quaint American brasserie in Midtown East is a nice change of pace compared to some of the other stuffy restaurants in the area. A refreshing alternative to the traditional midtown dining mélange, Lexington Brass offers a bistro-like experience, with floor to ceiling windows, tiled walls, marble tabletops and a big marble bar, and modern American cuisine, including many gluten free options.
Gluten Free Brunch Menu options include:
Fruit & Berry Jar
Pumpkin Spice Gluten Free Waffles
This Morning’s Frittata
Classic Eggs Benedict – served over potatoes or vegetables instead of an English muffin
Benedict Royale – served over potatoes or vegetables instead of an English muffin
Egg White Omelette with roasted mushroom and goat cheese
Baked Egg, Blue Crab & Avocado with bell pepper salad
Caesar Salad – NO croutons
Kale Salad with pinenuts and a roasted red pepper vinaigrette
Raw Bar – Oysters and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail
Two Eggs any style
Maple Glazed Triple Cut Bacon
The food was delicious and the portion sizes were not too big nor too small. The prices were a little bit higher than I normally like to spend on brunch, but it was well worth it to try it once. My only complaint was the service. Both our server and hostess were a bit stuffy, and we wait a while before being offered water and placing our order.
