Brunch Above Par @ Agozar!

6 Dec

Sangria for Free-a!

Agozar, translated roughly, means “to enjoy yourself” and that’s exactly what this Cuban Restaurant on the Bowery (btwn Bond/Bleecker) is all about.  Everything about this resto is flamboyant and flashy, making it a perfect venue for a Saturday or Sunday party brunch, or just an unruly dinner amongst friends.  But hear this: head there on the weekend, order yourself a brunch entrée (about $9-14 each) and get UNLIMITED Sangria refills at NO extra cost.  Aye Carumba!

It's Hip to Dip

The Brunch menu includes Cuban staples and some interesting twists as well.  My brunch date Aimee and I started with the Mariquitas – plantain chips with guacamole, and black bean hummus – GET THESE.  They’re a perfect crunchy starter.

After a long time (we got our money’s worth of Sangria and THEN some), we ordered the Huevos Rancheros (sans pollo – we’re both veggers) and we had our eggs scrambled, rather than fried.  They were SO accommodating and made any changes we asked for at no charge!

Leggo My Huevos!

This dish was really good – the crispy tortillas beneath our pile-o-eggs sandwiched yummy black beans and the whole dish sat in a warm, smoky sauce.  I would HIGHLY recommend asking them for hot sauce if you like to add a little heat – their rendition is a homemade green jalapeno cream sauce – it brought everything to the next level.

Agozar brunch is definitely one spot you need to try; it will leave your belly and wallet full (our total bill was under $35 – WOW).  Also, check it out on Tuesday nights – book your reservation online (here) for 50% off all your food items from 8-11pm.   Get there – go AGOZAR yourselves.
