Sunny with great views of the Hudson. Solid lunch fare, including burgers and salad. Mac and cheese flight is fun, but overpriced. Cobb salad was good. Draft beer and good cocktails.

We were looking for a casual brunch near the Trade Center memorial. Only a few blocks away and views of the river, we decided to stop in here. They really pack people in tightly but that was fine. Great eggs benedict!
