The Apotheosis of Brunch

With word starting to leak about the two-person, once-a-week brunch at Williamsburg butcher shop The Meat Hook, it’s no wonder it’s booked up until mid-year 2011. The $50 rezzie covers a marathon brunch for two, drinks included, with the caveat that the dishes keep coming till they get back an unfinished plate….Part ultra-exclusive meal, part psychological experiment and part hipster prank, it’s definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And by that, not only do we mean that it’s unique, but also that we’re not sure we’d ever do it again.

Via Zagat.

    Have you done it?

    I have not. The menu aside, sitting at a card table in the middle of a butcher shop and eating brunch for two while customers mill about is probably something worth doing. The guys here are great; advocates for whole-animal butchery and humane farming. They just send out the occasional Twitter missive offering shots of Wild Turkey in exchange for some homemade pumpkin pie.

    If you do it, please document it.
