Freakin' awesome brunch at Counter NYC

Had a lovely brunch at Counter in the East Village yesterday afternoon. This was the Mean Green Mary. Despite the dandelion greens and other good for you additions, I think I got a little tipsy.We shared the potato latkes. The condiment was a pear compote. Fried potatoes. So scrumptious.

This was the East Side Burger. Seitan and mushroom pate with some soy cheddar on top. Tasty, but kind of fell apart a bit when you took a bite. Eh, who cares, it's one of the better flavored veggie burgers I've had in the city.
Mmmmm biscuits with vegan sausage gravy. This was really yummy. Not too salty and just the perfect amount of sausage gravy. I'll get this again.

And what's brunch without a little dessert? This awesome brownie a la mode features a vanilla nut based ice cream. Yum!

That brunch looks fantastic! I had brunch at Counter when I was in NYC last May, and loved it - but I didn't get any of the dishes pictured here. I want that brownie & ice cream!

I'm glad to hear it wasn't too salty. On the rare occasion that I get biscuits and gravy, it's almost always too salty. Everything looks fabulous!
