Locanda Verde

Brunch at Locanda Verde Sunday was everything I had hoped it would be.  I had been dying to go since they opened and a friend in town and another who lives for brunch gave me the perfect excuse to spend a cool but sunny February Sunday in down in Tribeca.  The Ken Friedman designed space located in the bottom of the Greenwich Hotel (think DeNiro), is pretty gorgeous.  Lots of dark wood and beautiful windows, the restaurant is large so although busy, we weren't at all crammed. 
Here are some pics from the afternoon.

The pastry/espresso bar in front is open to walk-ins needing a little caffeine jolt.

Or for those who want freshly made glazed doughnuts, I fall into both categories.

 We waited a little longer than expected so they quickly brought over a pastry board compliments of the chef.  I would have gladly waited another half hour to taste these!

Hazelnut crusted french toast.
 Zucchini, roasted red pepper, and goat cheese frittata.
 I liked the copper inlay on the rustic wooden tables.

We made a point of walking through the Greenwich Hotel lobby after brunch, really cool space. 
Love these, anyone know what they are?

My tan boots matched this gorgeous tan tufted leather couch.

So glad you went! The pastry board and French toast are two of MY favorite things, too!
