Another Sunday, another brunch – this week, the Irish edition. (It’s always the Irish edition with an Irish man.) Anyfart, we hit local pub Fiddlestick’s after finding that Cafeteria had a half hour wait, and deciding we really can’t afford to be brunching at most of the fancy-pants places in Chelsea.

Fiddlesticks‘s main draw is the outdoor seating and $10 brunch special that includes two complimentary drinks, such as mimosas and Bloody Marys. Jon got the Irish breakfast in nostalgic memory of his homeland and the customary consumption of gross amounts of meat in the morning. (Ah, who doesn’t love a bit of meat in the morning?) Jon says, “It was alright. It wasn’t anything great. I was starving so I just ate it.” Not a sterling review from a man who claims Burger King is “the bizzle.” Here’s what you came for:

I had had the french toast here before, and it’s pretty good, but very sweet and dessert-y, so I chose a burger with avocado and a fried egg on it. If you put a fried egg on something, it automatically becomes brunch. That’s a fact. Anyway, I was disappointed in the burger. They did that thing where they mix microscopic bits of onion into the meat which I absolutely hate, but in my fit of starvation, I ate most of it. I took the egg off and ate it separately to preserve it’s integrity amidst the funky beef patty.

At the end of the day, if you’re looking for a place with pleasant outdoor seating in the Village and only have $10 to spend, Fiddlestick’s might be the place to go. But keep in mind, it is a pub, and the food reflects this fact. Maybe you should save your visit for next week, when they’ll be having a 90s Throwback Party on Sunday night.

    Aww, too bad it’s not as delicious as a place called “Fiddlesticks” ought to be. Hare Field Road on Metropolitan Avenue is pretty fantastic for brunch, especially if you like eggs benedict.
