City Lighting brunch - awful!

PuertaDelSol | Mar 22, 2004 04:21 PM

People have been asking about this place of late, so I figured I would post. Four of us went to City Lighting (corner Flatbush/Prospect Place) for brunch on Sunday and were uniformally displeased.

I had an omelette with pico de gallo and cheddar. The pico was pretty ok, if banal, but the cheddar was a giant, gross, coagulated mess. Apparently they have not figured out how to make cheese melt properly inside an omelette.

The potatos on the side were slightly undercooked for my taste with a poorly integrated spiciness. In all, it was probably the highlight of the meal. The rye toast was probably fresh out of the toaster about 10 minutes before it got to my plate.

The place was a less than 1/4 full, so I can't chalk any of this up to a busy kitchen. Maybe the food here just stinks :( And to charge more than $10 for an omelette that looked to be engineered by an 8-year-old is an affront.


P.S. The coffee was ok! Slight redemption...

P.P.S. I was originally headed to 200 5th to see if I could re-create the better-than-average brunch experience I had there a few weeks ago.
