Last Friday, we had an incredible dinner at this new restaurant that opened just around 1 month ago in South Williamsburg.
The place is called Sunday in Brooklyn and we loved every single detail, from the house they’re in, the decor, the R&B style music with a fantastic playlist...to the drinks, the food, and certainly the dessert!
The space is beautiful, with a full bar, rustic wood decor, dim light (but not too dark…just perfect) and a great counter at the front, where you can see the preparation of a few dishes.
The entire staff is very polite and happy…the original Brooklyn service style!
We were lucky enough to meet the owners of the restaurant, Todd Enany and Adam Landsman, that were mingled within the waiters and staff, serving every table and making sure everything was working seamlessly! Jaime Young, the Chef, was at full speed in the kitchen!
They told a bit about their story and how it all started.
Both of them worked in the restaurant business and had a great background on how the entire business works.
Back then, Sundays was their only “day off”, and they were tired of trying to find a place where you’d have a great cup of coffee, amazing cocktails, good food, beautiful crowd and a unique playlist…all in one!
Adam told: “So, for my former job at Major Food Group, walking through the green markets were always good inspirations for food and trying to figure out what is was. One day I suddenly I hear someone calling my name and I turn around at it was Jaime. He was working at one of the farmer market stands helping out one of the farmers since he had just left his job. He wanted to open a restaurant in Brooklyn that was very vegetable focused, that was something close to home and that was relatable, fun and accessible.
I thought it was all very crazy and serendipitous. I hadn’t seen him in years. We saw that our our values were the same, the sustainability practices and our relationship with farmers and foragers was so important. Right after that, he came to cook for us and just crushed it. This dish (FYI: the one our Founder, Fernanda, was eating - the honey nut squash), was the second dish he did, and it was created during a 5 minute conversation. We just couldn’t believe it. It was awesome!”
Here is what we had:
- Buckwheat sourdough with beet butter
- Black Cod pastrami, rye sour cream and garden pickles
- Honey Squash, cultured cheese, crushed nuts and seeds
- Minute Steak, spigarello and charred red onions
- and an “off the menu special, made with cabbage, that was to die for
Fernanda, was so amazed with the entire experience, that she decided to go back for their first brunch weekend…so, Sunday, she went back!
Guess what?! Everything obviously exceeded her expectations.
This is what she had (with a friend, of course, lol):
- Carrot Bread with Ginger Cheese
- Grain bowl with barley, eggs, spices kale, mustard greens and avocado
- Cheddar scrambled eggs with home fries and sausage
- Special version of the avocado toast
- Malted pancakes, hazelnut maple praline, brown butter
- Black Coffee
There were countless tables ordering their famous Bloody Mary, which is one of the best sellers, called Sunday Bloody Sunday! So, you should try it if you’re into cocktails!
They are opened at all times: Breakfast (starting next week), Lunch (started today), Dinner and Brunches!
Make sure you add them to your top places to visit when you come to New York, and visit Williamsburg, in Brooklyn!
Maybe, you’ll even bump into Fernanda, that just became their #1 fan!
