With the introduction of this latest culinary event to their roster, the Village Voice has once again created another hit for foodies. We had the pleasure of attending the first ever The Village Voice Brunch Eats Food Event, which celebrates all things brunch, and what many has been doing for years, eating breakfast food for dinner.
Held aboard the top of The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s Flight Deck, foodies from around the tri-state area gathered to indulge in the delicious brunch offerings from the 26 area restaurants that participated in the inaugural The Village Voice Brunch Eats Food Event. The restaurant lineup included Barbounia, Bustan, Champs Diner, Distilled, Dough, Edi & The Wolf, Eggplant by Korilla, Ess-a-Bagel, Eugene & Co, Irvington, Jianbang & Co., Kingsley, Mezetto, Mr. Purple, Solber Pupusas, Tom’s Restaurant, Tygershark, Xe May Sandwich Shop, The Black Ant, Butter & Scotch, Calle Dao, Le Fond, Nha Minh, Osteria Cotta, Streets BK, and Underwest Donuts. Here are a few of the amazing culinary delights we indulged in:

Mezetto – Avocado Toast: With Hard Boiled Egg and Romesco Sauce
Kingsley – Praline Bacon French Toast Bread Pudding with Pork Fat Frosting

There were so many extraordinary dishes to try at the Village Voice Brunch Eats food event, and we naturally we had several favorites. We reveled in some new foodie experiences, like Jianbing, a traditional Chinese street food similar to crepes but this version boasted a modern update with the addition of bacon and Vermont Maple syrup. We alternated between savory and sweet dishes until we barely had room for drinks. Check out a few more of the delicious dishes we enjoyed:
Attendees were treated to the soothing sound stylings of live band The Brooklyn Sugar Stompers, who regaled us with an homage to the 1920’s, Jazz’s Golden Age.
As always, we had an amazing time with at the latest Village Voice food event. With the increase of more and more people enjoying breakfast for dinner, we see The Village Voice Brunch Eats as a must-attend foodie event annually. Do you enjoy breakfast for dinner?
