Reynard Re-Review: Brunch

curried kale and duck egg

If you’re looking for a scenic and civilized brunch in Williamsburg where seasonal, New American food is executed very well, then Reynard at the Wythe Hotel is a great spot. I’m normally not a fan of hotel restaurants, which tend to be bland since they need to have a middle-of-the-road approach to please their guests, but Reynard isn’t like that. On my last visit, I fell in love with their cast iron pancakes and was impressed by the originality of their baked eggs with crispy black rice. Sadly, these items weren’t on the menu when I returned in late January, but I did embrace the change, specifically in the form of the sourdough pancake and the frittata. I probably wouldn’t order the curried kale again, as it was a little too soupy for my liking, and the merguez sausage, while an interesting choice, was a very gamey and salty one. Overall, though, despite a few misses here and there, I was generally happy with the food and enjoyed taking in the views from the pretty, well-lit Victorian dining room filled with the attractive people of Brooklyn.
