Collard greens! We’ll be serving lots of collards and Hoppin’ John at our 3rd Annual New Year’s Day Southern Brunch. If you’re Southern (or happen to hang with Southerners), you know it’s good luck to eat both of those dishes on New Year’s Day. We won’t be tempting fate. If you’re in Brooklyn, stop by and hang with us. We’ll be open from 10 to 5.
We’re looking for a pastry assistant. Interested? Email us a little about yourself and send your resume to email@example.com. And if you know anyone, tell them to get in touch!
Get those Seersucker suits pressed. Our Derby Day celebration begins this Saturday at 4 p.m. We’ll have Kentucky-inspired specials, the debut of our julep cocktail menu, and prizes for best dressed man and best dressed woman. (A $250 Seersucker gift certificate!) See you Saturday!
Who says kids don’t eat vegetables? Here’s Seersucker’s Anais serving salad at P.S. 58’s Earth Day celebration. The ingredients: Swiss chard, mache, parsnips, radishes, dill, basil, tarragon, toma celena cheese and vinaigrette.
Our newest libation is pretty in pink and in keeping with our Southern writer theme: The Harper Lee, rhubarb-infused vodka, lemon & aleppo. She’s keeping The Capote company on the cocktail menu. Jorge our manager does not want to take credit, but he is the daddy of this drink.
Morels are here! Try them in the chanterelle-dusted North Carolina trout with market potato confit, morels and fiddlehead ferns.
Urban beauty. We forgot how many beautiful flowering trees are in this neighborhood. It’s been very blustery this spring, so many of the blooms have blown away. But consolation—the Carroll Gardens lilacs are in bloom! Do you know how nice it is to walk down the street in New York City and out of nowhere be hit with the smell of lilacs? It’s real nice.
One of our most popular brunch dishes: pimento cheese grits, poached egg, fried onion garnish and a green salad.
Collards! And Grandma’s wooden spoon.
Our new gin cocktail is named The Capote in honor of Truman, former Brooklynite and son of the South. Truman wrote “In Cold Blood” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” while living in Brooklyn Heights. In addition to gin, there’s a splash of vinegar in the drink. We thought this was fitting.
It’s brunch time! Our biscuits and gravy—authentic, delicious and not very pretty.

Wish we had scratch n’ sniff for this photo. Kumquat marmalade in progress. Citrus is in season right now, so it’s a good time to indulge. Grapefruit, kumquats, blood orange. Beautiful stuff. The marmalade is one of the spreads currently served with our biscuit box.
