Located in The Knickerbocker Hotel, walking into The Knick restaurant is like walking into a Kandisky painting. The bold, rich colors and curved bar and divider wall greet you as you walk into the space. Even the large support poles placed in the middle of the dining area emulate the signature style of the modern abstract painter. The large windows always provide an excellent view towards the lake and help accent the bright palette of colors.
Joining in brunch today were my friends Paul and Liz. They have wanted to go out to brunch for a while and suggested we check out The Knick. I have been here for many dinners before, but not for a Sunday brunch. I was looking forward to checking out a neighborhood spot in support of the "Eat Down the Street" project (see the reference in the Burp! Where Food Happens blog). Liz made the reservations, and I met them at the restaurant. By the time I got there, they had already been seated.
If you are looking for an upscale brunch spot without the upscale price, think about stopping in to The Knick. From about $16 - $19 per person, The Knick delivers on creative flavor combinations and presentation. Since it is located on Juneau Street in Easttown, be prepared for street parking, but on a nice day, it is worth it. Additionally, think about stopping here in the spring or summer months. Their patio is a spot to see and be seen.
Until next weekend, have a great week and happy brunching!
