This Sunday is Mother’s Day and also is the last day of Toast to Greenpoint so why not treat her to a mouthwatering meal for 25% off while supporting local businesses?

If you haven’t already, download the Cinch, and use code TOAST25 to get your discount at some classic Greenpoint spots.

Anella (222 Franklin St)

Anella’s warm, inviting interior opens onto a garden space to enjoy brunch outside (if it’s not raining). Brunch includes dishes such as an omelette with oyster and shiitake mushrooms, ricotta, and house potatoes, brioche French toast with mascarpone, and healthier options like a kale salad. Make it a boozy brunch with a Bellini that includes peach, elderflower, and prosecco.

Le Gamin (108 Franklin St)

Open since 1992, Le Gamin is where to take a mom who’d rather be in Paris. Try the escargot to really feel like you’re in France. If snails aren’t your thing, they also offer brunch fare like a mushroom and herb polenta cake with goat cheese crumbles. Finish the meal with a sweet crepe.

Brooklyn Label

Brooklyn Label is your go-to for a classic American brunch. Pancakes, benedicts, omelettes, and of course avocado toast can all be found here. It’s located in the landmark Astral building and has good vibes all around. Bring your mom here if she just wants some good pancakes and a mimosa!

If your mom has a sweet tooth, take her to Charlotte Patisserie. Enjoy French staples like a croque monsieur or a quiche – or just skip straight to dessert. Try the Duet, a white and chocolate mousse with hazelnut crunch, or a raspberry creme brulee, or their seasonal spring/summer Extravaganza, a mango-strawberry mousse topped with fresh candied strawberry.

Northern Territory Will Not Reopen This Year

Northern Territory Rooftop

This past November, we announced that Northern Territory would be hibernating for the winter and planned to reopen this Spring (as in now) for their final year at the corner of Franklin and Meserole Avenue before the building is razed for new development. Sadly, Nothern Territory will remain officially closed.

Why the sudden change of plans? Even though their lease is up at the end of the year, Northern Territory “came to an agreement with the new landlord” to be out in a few months and make way for the seven-story office and manufacturing building that is slated to be built. Continue reading

‘Provisions by Sunday’ Opens Monday (4/22) Inside A/D/O

Opening on Monday (4/22) inside of A/D/O (29 Norman Ave.), Sunday in Brooklyn (348 Wythe Ave.) will introduce their new food and bar program at the space where Norman previously operated.

The new restaurant “Provisions by Sunday” will be open every day 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and will feature an abbreviated menu of their signature brunch menu items and cocktails. The space and restaurant will be available to host private events of up to 600 guests as well.

The “Provisions by Sunday” residency will run through early summer, and the Sunday in Brooklyn team said that a brand new restaurant at A/D/O is to follow in a statement, .

Ultimately, the Sunday Hospitality team (Todd Enany, Adam Landsman, Jaime Young) will reimagine the food and beverage experience at A/D/O, launching a brand new restaurant with partners JT Vuong and George Padilla (formerly of Williamsburg favorites, Okonomi and YUJI Ramen). Together, they are excited to build a new home in this burgeoning neighborhood and to share their community-minded philosophies and guest-focused experiences.

A new feature of the service at Provisions by Sunday gives customers the ability to place orders from their phones. “There will be people in the space helping to sort of take orders…instead of trying to flag someone down to order food or drinks, you’ll be able to order from your phone whenever you want something,” said Adam Landsman from Sunday in Brooklyn.

While the popular live jazz brunch from the Norman-era is not expected to make a return, Landsman said that the interactivity of art, design and food in one space was a major draw and that art installations by A/D/O are planned.

Provisions by Sunday hours will be 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. every day.

Egg & Cheese Sandwich with gochujang aioli, cheddar, crispy potatoes, brioche
Avocado Toast with ricotta, roasted nuts and seeds, chili, Sunflower sprouts
Rice Bowl with kale, six-minute egg, seasonal veg, seeds, sprouts, kale
