On a street flooded with fast-casual restaurants and tourist havens, 121 Fulton Street is a respite from the ordinary. Adorned by lush, green flower boxes, the restaurant is both welcoming and charming, with an incredible view of 1 World Trade, just outside the door…
The brunch menu is classic with fresh, innovative nuances that cater to all taste palettes. I opted for an omelet and a screwdriver made with my favorite GF vodka, Tito’s. The unlimited drink option—$20 for unlimited Bloody Marys and Screwdrivers for two hours—makes for a perfect “Sunday Funday.” Though there isn’t an official gluten-free menu, the regular menu isn’t without options and the staff is more than willing to work on dietary restrictions. Whether you’re searching for a great egg dish—think their signature Fulton scrambler, or a more lunch-forward salad or a burger (no bun), there are a variety of options to suit just about anyone.
The omelet was filling and tasty and large enough to satisfy any level of hunger. There is a wide selection of make-your-own ingredients including delicious cheeses (I opted for fresh mozzarella), bacon and mushrooms—and everything in between. The omelet was light and fluffy, and not greasy at all. The generous side bacon had just the right amount of crunch. I learned that the French fries are dusted in flour, so while they looked amazing on my husband’s plate, I opted not to try them. I can’t wait to head back, because I have my eyes set on the Peanut Chicken Salad.
The front dining area is adorned with a wall of mirrors and high top tables and large bench seating. There’s a long bar in the main dining area, perfect for a post-brunch cocktail, where the vibe is low key but lively. The décor is reminiscent of The Ainsworth Park Avenue South, and with over 10 televisions, its ideal for game day, but the chandeliers and tufted benches create a perfect girls-night-out vibe.
