Whenever someone mentions biscuits, we immediately think of Post in Alphabet City. (And that's when you know a restaurant has made it.) Most of the brunch menu revolves around the somewhat dense and intensely buttery biscuits—which are sort of like if the Popeyes version got into Harvard. You can get them with things like peppery BBQ pulled pork and avocado, and there are multiple vegan options as well. If you order the chicken sausage white gravy, we suggest getting it on the side, so you can taste what the biscuits are like on their own. Two unexpected highlights are the arugula, avocado, and fennel salad with rice wine vinegar-marinated white beans and the creamy and foamy matcha with ginger. If we lived nearby, that matcha could easily replace our daily cup of coffee.
