Brinkley's Broome St. Restaurant Review

: If you're tired of the trendy spots where all the models go to be seen and where food goes untouched, Brinkley's is your oasis --- one of the only real neighborhood spots in an otherwise overly scene-y part of town. With a long list of seasonal beers, the restaurant inspires sidling up to the bar for a pint or three, though there are a few roomy round tables for intimate groups or post-work happy hour snacks with the gang from work. The wine list hails exclusively from New York State, which earns points for locavorism, but, unfortunately, New York State isn't well-known for their wineries for a reason. You're safer with drafts on tap or an expertly shaken cocktail. Food is of the comfort variety: pigs in a blanket, mac ‘n’ cheese, and chicken potpie spiced up with some Indian curry. Asian twists also make a few appearances in scallion pancakes and brisket sliders with kimchi. Save room for beignets, which come with salted caramel gelato.
