The Black Swan Effect

Last Sunday I had the chance to go to The Black Swan, a pub just a 10 minute walk from my house!

Formerly an auto-body shop, The Black Swan's interior is rustic but sleek; with semi-exposed brick walls, wooden tables, and a back porch that has outdoor seating.

For a Sunday, a week after the blizzard, the place was packed!  A few friend's have been telling me about the pub so we decided to go and catch up. Irish coffee, life talks, and mimosas were on the menu!

My friend Dimitria and I had the Eggs Benedict with Salmon:

Our friend Athena went with the Steak and Eggs:

Aiesha went with the Chicken and Waffles:

Their extensive beer selection and appetizers is motivating me to come back sooner or later especially for Friday night basketball games! I came back for take out on Saturday, it was a raining day and I couldn't get brunch out of my head. The general manager James remember me from my last visit, lol I felt special!

Brunch at the pub is available Monday-Friday 11:30am-4:30pm, Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm. The Black Swan has been open for 2 years now and it is one of the "go-to's" for dining in Bed-Stuy.  The restaurant has a relaxed vibe, but it is a spot to to take a friend or if you are (like me at times) too exhausted to go into the city. Stop by and you will not be disappointed!
