Prime Meats (Carroll Gardens,Brooklyn)

Oyster happy hour at Prime Meats is something that should truly not be missed!  I usually feast upon brunch here, but the weather was so beautiful I had to grab a seat on the sidewalk with a dozen of these babies.  This Brooklyn hot spot is known for local beers, crafted cocktails and sausages, but the welcoming atmosphere and farm to table food make locals come back for more..

Char no. 4 (Carroll Gardens,Brooklyn

 Bourbon Bloody Mary with house pickle


Poached eggs with bacon cheddar grits

Kentucky Royale-Bourbon, Sparkling Wine, Cassis and Orange

Char No. 4 is for the kinda Sunday when you wake up and you need a splash of bourbon in your bloody mary (or just the bourbon on the rocks...Hey no one is judging!!!). The eggs are so buttery, the bacon so crisp and the cornbead so moist, it is what brunch dreams are made of.  As soon as you walk in and smell the aroma of smoke and buttermilk and your eyes fall upon the warm hues of bourbon bottles lining the wall, you know this is going to be serious.  You will want to come back for more.... I promise.
