John and I finally checked out Union Fare for brunch. If anything can sell me on trying out a restaurant, it’s an insta-famous Fruity Pebbles croissant haha.
The space is really cool and fun and the restaurant is huge – it takes up an entire city block in Union Square. It’s definitely a good spot for groups or an event, and Union Square is so central so no one has an excuse to not show up.
We had bloody marys, the loaded tater tots, the Fruity Pebble croissant, the Brunch Bowl and the Benedict Board. The Benedict Board is cool because you can choose 3 out of 5 different preparations. I chose lobster (obviously), smoked salmon, and wild spinach. They were all really good, but it was a ton of food because you get 3 eggs. They’re also completely covered in hollandaise, so if you’re not into that you’ll want to ask for it on the side!
John’s Brunch Bowl looked really hearty and had whole grains, chicken, beans, guac, salsa, crema fresca and it was topped with 2 fried eggs cooked any way you want, John chose sunny-side up. It was definitely really filling but also felt like a healthier option which was nice.
The loaded tater tots are so good, but so heavy. They sit in a bed of dressing similar to the hollandaise sauce on my benny, and they’re topped with more sauces, bacon and chives. Not gonna lie I ate a lot of them.
The Fruity Pebble croissant….it’s everything you want it to be. Not a letdown at all. It’s really big, covered in Fruity Pebbles cereal and icing, and filled with something good. I don’t know exactly what the filling is, but it reminded me of my favorite cereal and milk.
I totally recommend Union Fare! Just please go on cheat day because you’re going to want to order everything 🙂
Union Fare is located at 6 East 18th Street.
