Intoxicated by the Tipsy Parson

Came for a business lunch a few weeks ago and immediately told The Mr that we had to go back to this delightful spot. On The Mr's birthday I wanted to take him to a special lunch and the Tipsy Parson fit the bill.

For starters we had the deviled eggs and fried pickles. I really liked how the fried pickles were small chunks instead of the usual spears because it made for a good pickle to breading ratio. The Mr got their Mac n Cheese with bacon and gave it a solid two thumbs up. I got the warm kale salad again after thoroughly enjoying it on my last visit. This is a salad to shame all other salads. Sweet potatoes, crispy shallots, mushrooms, dried cherries, and a brown butter vinaigrette give a hearty flavor explosion that would never be mistaken for rabbit food. This is my favorite salad in NYC, but I have a feeling that it won't be on the menu for long, since it has a distinctly autumn/winter seasonal feel to it.

We also checked out the brunch menu and liked what we saw, so will be sure to come back soon. We've also heard that in the evening it transforms into a great bar with good happy hours, so we'll be sure to keep that in mind as well!
