Experts (Dr. Oz, Michelle Obama, Count Chocula) say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Despite their “substantial empirical evidence,” we counter that this honor belongs to our personal hero, brunch. Why? Because brunch is breakfast with a healthy serving of forgiveness for sleeping through breakfast. But sadly it gets kind of expensive. So that’s why we now somehow love bar we love Brooklyn Fireproof (119 Ingraham Street) even more, after they emailed us to let us know they have a $5 brunch menu every weekend. Brunch! For five dollars! Your move, Subway. Brunch, greasy, delicious, and a great way to make up for trying to outdrink your own reflection last night, is even better for just five dollars. That’s so cheap, you can forgive yourself for financially cataclysmic decisions like taking a cab more than a mile. From 1pm-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, the lone, ragged five-dollar bill that survived last night can score you one of the following:
- Five silver dollar pancakes,
- Huevos rancheros
- Biscuits and gravy with one egg any style
- A breakfast burrito
- Calabasitas (Yellow and Green squash with corn and onions in a flour tortilla, with pico de gallo, chile, cheese, lettuce and tomato)
This brunch special means if you wake up at 3pm strapped, forlorn, and hungry, it’s ok because BFP’s $5 breakfast burrito still loves you. Take that, judgmental morning breakfast.
