The Brunch Dish is here once again! This time we're talking about Lilly's Craft & Kitchen in Hell's Kitchen, NYC. I confess that I have actually been here twice in the last few months. The first time I was hanging out with my friends and their two adorable kids, so suffice it to say that while the pictures I took were cute, there was also a lot of other stuff going on. Kids do not care if you want to take a photo of food!
The second time I visited Lilly's, I was with a friend and we sat at the front window - prime location for people-watching! We grabbed the menus and saw that the brunch primarily consisted of quite a few egg dishes and burgers. But don't worry! They do have classic breakfast/brunch dishes such as pancakes and french toast. There are also several weekend specials which they swap in and out.
Have I mentioned that Lilly's also has an unlimited drink menu!?!?!
For $24, you can have unlimited Mimosas, Bellinis, or Bloody Mary's for 90 minutes with the purchase of a brunch entree. This is a great deal if you plant to have 3 or more beverages over the course of brunch, as just one of these drinks is ~$8. When I visited Lilly's, I was actually pretty tired so I opted for a coffee and a glass of wine. My friend decided to take advantage of the Bellini drink special though!
My friend's food arrived first (there was actually a glitch and my food was delivered to another table!). She ordered the Lilly's Signature Burger which also comes with fries on the side. It looked delicious and she enjoyed it as well!
I opted for the Breakfast Quesadilla. When I finally received it, it was fabulous! The portion size wasn't too large and I really enjoyed the side of chips and salsa to nosh on.
I will say that I highly recommend the brunch at Lilly's Craft & Kitchen. Even though they sort of forgot to give me my order the second time I visited, everyone was really nice and tried their best to fix the issue once they realized it.
I would also venture to say that this is a favorable location to bring kids to brunch if it's earlier in the day. They open at 11am on weekends and it wasn't too crowded at the opening hour. It gets busier in the afternoon, so it will be more adult-friendly later on.
Either way, I have enjoyed my experiences here and I would definitely recommend Lillys' Craft Bar & Kitchen to anyone who might be in the Hell's Kitchen area for a weekend brunch.
