Food is forgettable, prices are reasonable, owner is a jerk – We recently tried Brinkley's and had an amazing artichoke soup but an unpleasant experience with one of the owners (Anthony Maritignetti) and his friends. I was sitting with my little sister and her friend from college, waiting for our food, when Mr. Martignetti and his friends starting leering and crudely talking about my sister, debating whether or not she was "hot enough" to pick up. It was cruel. As a public figure, he should be as mindful of his behavior as he is about his menu.
Had a great time, Good Food Great Place – I had family in from out of town last week. We brought the kids and family members to Brinkley's for dinner. None of us expected much but we were very plesantly suprised. The food was very hearty and everyone, from the kids to grandparents enjoyed. This place is not the old bar martignetti, it is the new brinkley's.
Promising New Place – I'm suprised to read the other reviews here but we did go on a slower sunday night so I'm sure our experience was different. Our waitress let us know about their vegetarian dish for the night which we ordered. Needed a little salt but it was creative and filling. Maybe this is a new policy they've started. The entire staff was nice and friendly even though it was a slow night. I'm sure they have some kincks to work out but overall idea is there. I'll give it a shot again.
Delicious Food and Fabulous Service – After having a little bit of trauma with our first trip to Brinkley's (no vegetarian options and an unaccomidaing manager) we received an appology from the GM and decided to give Brinkley's another try.
Both the food and the service were incredible. The pate was DELICIOUS, as was both the vegetarian cranberry bean entre in a truffle sauce (who knew veggies could be so tasty) and the artichoke soup which was an awesome combination of a thick artichoke base and a french onion soup-like cheesy topping.
Prices on the menu are all very reasonable (an entre and an app will run you ~$25), and the foods are all from local farms and are incredibly fresh. The staff was also incredibly helpful and attentive.
As we had expected before our first experience at Brinkely's - this will become a regular spot for us!
Citysearch Editorial Review – The brothers Martignetti open a sleek new gastropub in the space formerly occupied by their brasserie, Bar Martignetti.
If you want to meet high-quality men this is the place! – Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Brown, and so on. Laugh all you want, but I didn't go to an Ivy, and the next best thing to going to an Ivy is marrying someone who did. This place is crammed with good looking, smart well placed single young men. I mean this is a single girls dream, that is if you're looking for someone who can hold up a conversation, produce good looking children and support them and you,in style, and dance too! I met a guy just out of law school, gorgeous, could dance like P-Diddy, talk like a genius and the rest--well--was simply amazing. Bellas downstairs is where the action is. The drinks are cool and the food, well it's good too. But it's the men that make it the only place me and my girlfriends want to be.
cant go wrong – great food. great atmosphere....will be back for sure next time I am in the city! THe wine selection is incredible and they dont mind letting you taste a couple
Time is Precious – TIme is Precious and I regret stepping foot into this place. Waited on line for a long time to find out that the place is practically empty. Let alone I was surrounded by young girls that were very snobbish and pushy. If you like dark dingy places with people with fake snotty personas then this is the place for you...
SOLID – I come here on a regular basis. Always a good seat and always a good meal. The Lobster Club and Chicken Paillard are my favorites. The Huevos Rancheros and Pancakes served at brunch are both great as well...
best window seating downtown – i had heard that the crowd was too sceney, and it was sceney...but why go out in soho in the summer if your not looking for a good scene, so deal with it. my friends and i sat in the front windows and drank rose and had great apps (tuna tartar, watermelon salad, etc.)... the food was great, altough the service was a bit slow, but whatever. i will definitely be back to check out the scene, and sit in the windows which have the best view around.
