Wall & Water, Financial district, NYC

Excellent Brunch & Service

W&W is located on the 3rd floor of a new hotel on wall street. It was difficult to find as it’s not right at the corner of W&W streets, so we had to visit starbucks to use the free internet & get the exact location. thank goodness for the good old ipod touch

Once in the hotel, we walked up some large marble staircases and were greeted by two men in suits (!) and brought to our table.

Brunch consists of a cold buffet, although I’m loath to use a word with such bad connotations. It was piled high with smoked salmon, various artisan cheeses, berries & poached fruit as well as fresh juice cocktails & non-alcoholic bubbly. Cobblers, creme anglais, caramel sauce, etc…naughty.

You can either just eat off the serve yourself bar, or you can order a hot plate, which also includes the bar. We got a great bottle of Dry Rhone Rose, a bit apparently to the servers surprise (we had been up since 8 & it was noon) but many people seemed to be coming straight down from the hotel at that time, and I ordered the cold bar, while my dining partner had two of their “cast irons” (small egg dishes served in mini cast iron pans).

Really excellent service, plates cleared promptly, new cutlery always appearing (freshly polished) and never lacking any water refills.

Highly recommend this place for brunch before or after checking out the brooklyn bridge / ellis island etc.
