four of us went to a very nice brunch today (sunday) at FP. we called at noon and had only a 45minute wait, which was fine for the walk over from the west village. FP had quite the bustling crowd and is a very pretty space. we were seated promptly in the back corner under a sunny atrium and by the kitchen which was a fun spot to watch the action.
started with a bloody mary pitcher. it was a standard rendition, less horseradish than i prefer, but it went down just fine. prompt coffee and water refills and good service were the rule. they start you with crusty sullivan street bakery bread which is hard to resist. overall the menu is pretty broad as brunch menus go.
the boys both had the baked egg/tomato/polenta/ricotta bowls. the eggs were a little too well done but overall it was very good. the polenta, chives, tomato and cheese and the kind of charred oven baked approach were the winning notes to the eggs.
the ladies had fried chicken baskets. the boys could only sneak a bite but wow, that is some great fried chicken. you only get two small pieces though so big eaters and KFC fans beware, but it's enough.
total was $50/per couple with tip. pricey, but it looks like we found a fine brunch spot.
