Oh, I have been to Buttermilk Channel. But I had not been there from brunch.

UNTIL NOW.

I always have to impress my momma when she comes and sometimes it’s hard to do. If I pick one bad restaurant out of fifty meals with her, I hear about the bad restaurant two years later still. True. BUT this last go around was perfecto. I had been dying to get to Buttermilk but I never got up in time for there to not be a four-hour wait (not really four hours, but you know) and my momma and Em Bem don’t sleep late so we got to Buttermilk and walked straight in for a table. At the communal table, which is always fun. We ordered bacon after seeing how nice it looked for the person next to us. And we got sticky buns, which you see above.

Eggs benedict for Emmy Boo. She loved them.

French toast for my momma…

And a short stack of panacakes for me. I LOVE PANCAKES.

Also – they couldn’t serve alcohol til noon on Sunday so we couldn’t have mimosas (I told you we went early) – is that actually a thing in New York? Have I really been here four years and never gone to brunch early enough to notice this before? Crazy! I like my sleep, people.

It’s my MOM! Hi, Mom! The Doughnut Plant is her favorite.

It astonishes me when I hear people who have lived in the city for 4+ years and have never been to The Doughnut Plant. Even people who’ve lived here for 4 days, really. What are you waiting for? I am constantly shocked by who has not been there yet. And with their new location on 23rd st, you really have no excuse. Of course, however, we always go to the original location on Grand Street. There used to be this big guy who worked there with lots of personality, but now it appears they’ve hired hipster replacements with zero personality instead, but we’ll still take it.

This is the only picture of us three from the entire weekend. And it was taken at The Doughnut Plant. Of course.

For those wondering, that is a strawberry lemonade in my mom’s hand and for those who like strawberry more than you like lemon (aka, me) that means you will like it a lot.

And here’s a peek of what was in the bag:

Although they have lots of fun flavors, we get the same thing every time: chocolate black out and creme brulee. My, my.

I don’t care how many times I’ve posted pictures of this damn salad, it is still the best salad in the entire city. All Chopped Up. At Cowgirl Seahorse. Or Cowgirl Hall of Fame. I just love those two spots, and I like to share them with other people too. They’ve got a fabulous brunch menu, but for some reason I can never get myself to stray from this salad!

Yeah… these pictures are cute. :)

Everybody loves brunch at Cowgirl Seahorse. Who’s coming next time? Also – I can’t wait to sit outside for spring time!

Hello, beautiful. This is a drink at the beautiful Union Square Cafe. When Robert was here, he wanted to go to as many Danny Meyer restaurants as possible, so I tagged along for some of them. Now don’t be fooled by the girlie colors of this drink because this beverage is not for the faint of heart. It was actually quite strong. I can’t tell you what was in it because the cocktail menu is not online but I can tell you it was lunch and on the lower left hand side of the menu. And I appreciated it.

This was the gnocchi, which was kind of like pasta marshmallows. I’ve had gnocchi before, but I’m not sure if I ever had it this fluffy. This was very good and I stole the last bite for sure. Also, the bartender told us if we ever come back, we need to try more pastas, so I’m hoping to do that at some point because I really liked Union Square Cafe.

This was the beef sirloin carpaccio with crispy artichokes. I am a beef carpaccio fan.

And then the most amazing thing was. Robert and I barely glanced at the dessert menu but I told him that at some point in the day I did want dessert. We didn’t order any and then voila! The bartender brought us out this amazing goodness:

Warm chocolate brownie custard with coffee ice cream and Kahlua caramel sauce. Yes, please. It was so nice of the bartender to bring it to us, I was really so impressed. And it was the exact dessert I would have picked out for myself. Mmm. So I really like Union Square Cafe. I also really like sitting at the bar. It should become my new thing. Become a lady who lunches at Union Square Cafe. Oh, I’ll be back. I don’t know when, but I’ll be back.

Are there reasons to leave Brooklyn? Sometimes I’m not sure. Brooklyn is freaking HUGE and there is really every thing you could ever want here. Every kind of neighborhood, every cuisine, every style. Last night’s adventures brought Kelly and I to Red Hook, a neighborhood I’ve been to all of one time, but a neighborhood I’m well-aware is full of good. And one good is the Red Hook Lobster Pound. Sure, you can get their lobster rolls on the weekends at the Brooklyn Flea, but we had a Blackboard Eats promo code so it was time to check out the actual shop.

You can get lobster packages to go at the Lobster Pound, or you can get your lobster to stay. Kelly and I decided to each go for a lobster roll and root beer and split a lobster bisque. Well, actually Kelly decided to get the lobster bisque and I decided we were sharing. But all the same!

There’s a lot of reasons I love the Red Hook Lobster Pound. One, it’s obviously delicious (just ask my sister), two, it’s Brooklyn and they’ve been at a lot of Brooklyn events (Brooklyn Flea and Brooklyn Bloggers Meetup on the top of my head) and three, I just like their style. And their Red Hook shop has a whole room with picnic tables for seating.

Oh, and the lobster bisque was amazing too.

And – if you’re in DC, they also have a Lobster Truck, which is an amazing idea and one I hope they bring to Manhattan, so I can grab ’em on my lunch breaks.

Oh my goodness. What I would do.

I love Buddy’s Pizza in Detroit. It’s practically the only place I get pizza when I’m in town. Maybe I should live a little and try new places but why fix something that ain’t broke? Buddy’s is the shiz!

So we go there all the time. Above is the antipasta salad with cheese on the side. My sisters and I always fight over what salad to order because I always want Greek but they are both really damn delicious so it does not matter. Yes! Language! That’s happening!

Here is the pizza!

It’s square and it’s deep-dish and the sauce is on top. Oh my goodness! And I love the sauce. I need more.

HERE IS A CLOSE-UP:

STICK A FORK IN IT! MY GOODNESS.

I am a passionate person, I think. I get excited about many things. As you can see, I am passionate and excited about Buddy’s pizza. I think I’ve met one person my whole life who doesn’t like it and I’m going to have a heart attack trying to remember who that was because it really cannot be possible.

Here’s my sister giving me a strange look before she goes on Buddy’s Pizza attack. She’s also coming to the city today! Yippee!

What is the best burger in Detroit? Hard to say, but I can give you a few suggestions. One is Hunter House and their famous sliders. Delicious. This place is a neighborhood staple and despite the fact that they’ve changed from serving Coca Cola to Pepsi over the years, it’s one of my top three. So good.

I met up with my friend Paul who I used to work with – a few blocks away from Hunter House actually – at a theatre in high school. Working there was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. It was so much fun and I still have tons of friends from there. Ok, maybe four isn’t “tons” but these people ended up being some of my best friends even seven or so years later. Palladium til we die!

Anyway, Hunter House is amazing. It’s cash only, like any true gem, and you order at the counter. There are signs all around the place for people who have eaten absurd amounts of double cheeseburgers and chili fries. But it’s that good. And I really like their pickles (see above).

When I was taking the pictures outside, a woman asked my friend Paul if Hunter House was famous. Um, hello, lady! Haha, I guess people in the D aren’t used to crazy girls walking around taking pictures of everything. Yet… :)
