Dirck the Norseman, Greenpoint, New York

Memorial Day Monday, we walked over to Greenpoint for brunch. Heather had been to Dirck the Norseman recently and loved it. The location is large and airy, and on nice days, they open the garage doors and you’re basically sitting on a terrace.

The whitefish salad wasn’t too mayonnaisey and had a good, fishy taste. With the thick, brioche toast and the egg, it was amazing.
