We went on the Friday after Thanksgiving last year when the restaurant opened its doors for dinner at 5:30, and there was still already a sizable number of people at the bar waiting to get in. The bar at The Breslin is supposed to serve great drinks as well as have a great selection of beers, but we didn't get any drinks that night.
For appetizers, we tried the lamb scrumpets, with a mint-vinegar dipping sauce
Arguably their most popular dish is their lamb burger with thrice cooked fries. This fries were very crunchy
but waaaaay too salty. The burger was a perfect medium rare and was excellent and the bun holds up well
to the meaty burger. It's also served on a wooden cutting board...Fancy! At $17 it's well worth it.
The most disappointing dish, sadly, was the stuffed pig's feet for two. I actually really like pig's feet, and the part towards the bottom of the foot was great. However, the upper part was stuffed with a meat mixture that was way over salted and made the dish almost inedible. Maybe it was meant to be had with beer? Nonetheless it was one of the saltiest items I had at any restaurant.
Would I go back again, probably not. I definitely would not recommend the pig's foot but would wholeheartedly recommend the lamb burger. And if you do go, get drinks as a few other Yelp reviews also mentioned that some of the food seemed to be over-seasoned.
