(A healthier alternative to some of the other breakfast offerings around town and just what one needs after a 28 hour flight.... the food is mostly organic and light - but if you are doing coffee make sure you ask for a double shot - as is typical in the states the coffee here is fairly weak)
The potentially scary and overwhelming brunch meeting was relaxed and fun, turning into a bit of a girly wander and shop so we could have more time discussing possible projects.... which meant a late afternoon snack and a cocktail of course. Balthazar was packed so we wandered up the road to what looked, from the outside, like a dodgy British style pub and I did think for a moment, hmmm.... not sure if I can be doing business with this lady-but she was so on the money. Any brief lapse of faith had been restored.
Puck Fair is a friendly joint with plenty of beer if thats your thing, great cocktails at reasonable prices and simple but excellently executed grub.
I ordered a couple of sliders - one with pulled pork and a smokey sweet homemade bbq sauce and the other a mini burger with tender, flavoursome beef, cheese and relish - they were both smashing little buns! We were off to a good start on what would be a gastronomic couple of weeks.
I also imbibed a Ginger Fizz - highly recommended. Gin, ginger liqueur, prosecco and candied ginger.
