For a brunch menu that ensures your standard egg dishes and pastries are spot on, but also offers less common brunch fare, head to Black Sheep. If you want to feel like you’re dining in Brooklyn, enjoy a leisurely brunch here. From its simple and inviting seating arrangements, to its slightly off-the-beaten path menu offerings, the restaurant offers a comfortably ironic vibe in all the best ways.

 

Signature item:

Go big and get the BS Griddle. The sandwich’s “bread,” like that of its golden arches inspiration, is a pair of fluffy pancakes with house made bacon or sausage, egg, and melty cheese between, served with a side of toasty hash brown potatoes. If you’re with a crowd of any size, start with the bread basket of champions, the Game of Scones, featuring assorted pastries that change weekly—monster croissants, mini scones and muffins, and the best fresh-baked restaurant bread around. Other fun dishes to consider include the chimichanga, featuring smoked pork, beans, rice, salsa, sour cream, and an optional egg, and the egg fideos (noodles) with sofrito. For the less adventurous, the biscuits and gravy or double cheeseburger are solid picks.

 

Best drink:

For a crisp, bitter take on a traditional mimosa, consider keeping the citrus and adding a flavored beer. Black Sheep’s Beermosa combines Collective Arts Basil Cranberry Gose with orange juice to get a winning match for anything from a breakfast sandwich to a burger.

 

Ambiance/best for:

Black Sheep is ideal for smaller groups and couples, but can accommodate one or two larger parties at once. It can be a cozy spot for a date, and in the warmer weather, the patio is a lovely option.
