Greetings my lovelies!

Back with a foodie post and this one if from a new spot I tried in NYC! I love a good brunch spot with delicious cocktails and I highly recommend Hundred Acres if you are around South Village.

I had heard about Hundred Acres from a few friends before and finally decided to give it a try. Owned by the owners of CookShop, Vic’s & Rosie’s, I was really excited to try it out. The best part about picking this spot was that they took reservations right away for brunch because most of the good places in NYC have no reservations for Sunday and an extremely long wait time. We got a reservation a week before so I recommend doing that too if you plan on going here. Hundred Acres has a very nice vibe to it. There is some great music playing in the background and it's those typical spots that are buzzing with people sipping Bloody Marys on a New York Sunday. It has a huge space with a garden in the back which is super cute. The inside is cozy with lots of art which I always love. You can't miss this building because of the bright blue entrance which just adds to the charm of this restaurant. Even though the place was packed, the service was on point and our server was extremely helpful. The menu is a mix of different palettes which includes your typical sweet french toast and eggs to some Mediterranean-style plates. They have a large Bloody Mary menu so we got one of those and one of their Prosecco-based cocktails. Quite refreshing, but nothing that wowed me.

For food, we went with some of the server's recommendations. For starters, we went with the Ricotta Fritters and the Roasted Delicatta Squash. It was a perfect combination of sweet and savory, I enjoyed both of the dishes. The fritters covered in honey and powdered sugar was super delicious. Just like eating some beignets! The texture being super fluffy just melts in your mouth. The squash is fresh and in my opinion, quite a unique dish. The mix of squash with arugula and concord grapes together creates a perfect mix of ingredients. I got the Brioche French Toast for my main meal. This one was fluffy and dense with hints of warm cinnamon. The honey granola helps give it a nice crunch! I also didn't mind the whipped cream on top! We also ordered the Mediterranean Plate as main which was another great dish. It includes poached eggs on top of falafel with feta, cucumbers and other veggies on the side. They also paired it with warm pita bread which was yummy.

I think overall I really like this place and would probably go again. The quality of the food is great and I love the whole vibe! Even though it was packed it didn't feel claustrophobic, which ends up happening at a lot of brunchy restaurants in NYC. I think their dishes are quite unique and if you would like a mix of palettes instead of your traditional go-to breakfast, this spot is for you! I hope this review helps you if you live in New York or just visiting and want to grab brunch/lunch somewhere!
