Philip Marie serves traditional and appealing brunch fare including the best waffle fries and chicken sandwich in the city. The melted brie, pesto and grilled chicken on toasted, buttered bread is a rock star and something I wake up craving. It’s always a special surprise to see waffle fries served on your plate these days. Why is Chick-Fil-A the only consistent one on this game? The chocolate chip pancakes are also a stellar mid-morning treat for you chocolate lovers out there. The more than affordable menu and delicious food make this a rare gem in the West Village. Although, the service is a bit off, it’s the place to meet friends for a simple brunch that won’t create drama with penny pinchers. If you want to step it up a notch, sign yourself up for the unlimited bloody mary/mimosa brunch that includes an entrée for $24.95. Philip Marie is perfect for a dragging Sunday and easy and satisfying for all.
***Tip: The private “Tasting Room” aka wine room downstairs seats up to 20 people and is a fun option for a birthday or private party.
