I had heard Kyma just got into the brunch game. A visit was a must as this is one of my go-to restaurants with clients in Flatiron. The restaurant provides a much-needed Grecian escape from the city’s commotion and icy winter temperatures. The brunch menu has a selection of Mediterranean-centric dishes that reflect the light and airy theme.
First up we started with cocktails. Kyma offers Bloody Marys, mimosas, sangria, and Bellinis for just $5 a pop. We were amazed with the low price point and the quality of drinks served. The sangria was just right and the Bellini had the perfect bubbly to peach puree ratio.
Next up, we had to get in on the dip situation. We went with a Pikilia and selected a trio to try. Tzatziki, spicy feta, melitzanosalata were each different but oh so delicious. The eggplant was our absolute favorite. The dips came with warm seasoned pita for mopping up with.
We had placed an order of Spanakopita to start with as well but this request went unheard apparently and arrived at the very end of our meal. Despite the slow service, the spinach and feta-stuffed phyllo was good.
For our entries we decided to share a few items. The eggs saganaki seemed ideal for a cold winter day. The dish comes with two eggs baked in a flavorful tomato sauce topped with grilled eggplant and spinach. This was unbelievable.
Next we had the eggs Benedict. As I am a vegetarian, we opted to have this sans the Canadian bacon that the item usually comes with. The poached eggs were cooked well but the saffron Hollandaise truly made this dish remarkable.
A few cocktails in, we had to end with the Tsoureki French Toast. The warm golden toast comes with mixed berries and a sweet maple syrup for drizzling. It was delectable.
Brunch at Kyma was pretty damn good and certainly measures up to our previous dinner experiences. The best part was that brunch is still a secret so it’s not yet packed to the brim. We noticed an abundance of large parties celebrating around us. We knock this down a grade for the lackluster service.
The Bitches say: Four Champagne Flutes for an elevated Mediterranean brunch filled with Grecian vibes and reliable food.
Kyma serves brunch Sundays from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
