Fresh Salt: Speck and Chill Brunch by South Street Seaport

We’re still exploring our new neighborhood, and this weekend we wanted to have brunch before running some Saturday errands.  It was gray and drizzly outside, and we were looking for somewhere unpretentious and cozy.  We ended up walking in the direction of South Street Seaport, towards some of our errands.

We spotted a place called Fresh Salt, and it just seemed to suit the weather and feel of the morning.  It’s right off the main promenade of the Seaport, and away from the busiest part.

Sitting at the bar was definitely a good move, and we got to sit by the window, in our own little nook  🙂


And if you’re sitting by the bar then you should really get a brunch drink…

Mimosa of the day for me (pear mimosa), and Bloody Mary for him.  Brunch is served!

My fiancé ordered Eggs Any Style and chose Speck as his meat.  It’s basically toasted crunchy prosciutto, and it comes as a side with quite a few of the brunch dishes.

I ordered their Omelet of the Day, which was spinach, tomato, and cheddar cheese.  I appreciated that the bread we both got on the side was thick-cut and toasted.  It gave it a lot more of an artisan feel.  I also hate going out for brunch and getting room temperature or cold bread!

You get coffee, tea, or juice with brunch, and I really appreciated that they let us have Pellegrinos instead, since we had already had coffee that morning!  I definitely recommend this place for a relaxed and very-low key brunch.  It’s not a destination brunch like so many of the place in New York, but for a nice, well-cooked meal, in a homey environment, I’d go here again.
