Jodi and I were supposed to see the open studio of Peter Drake, an amazing painter who is also the dean of the New York Academy of Art where Jodi studied. So we decided to find a place in Dumbo where the studio is and stumbled upon Atrium, a restaurant that serves seasonal dishes.
I really like the place, from its open kitchen to the decor, one of the walls being covered by a plant, highlighting even more the concept.
We went for brunch and I rarely order a cocktail, preferring usual fresh squeezed juices or, like this time, a rosemary lemonade that was quite good and refreshing.
For my entree, I opted for the Cobb salad and added lobster that elevated that classic salad that I would not have ordered if such option was not available. And I did not regret it: there was a nice amount of a perfectly cooked lobster in it.
Jodi went for their avocado toast that had a perfectly cooked poached egg on top. But, like often, there could have been more avocado on it...
Last was dessert: we could not resist ordering their brioche donuts with homemade sour cinnamon sugar butterscotch. I was a bit disappointed. Not only were the donuts a bit dry, but the butterscotch had way too much scotch in it (don’t get me wrong: I like scotch but not like that) and was too sour.
We left with mixed feelings about Atrium. Maybe we will give it another shot, this time for dinner. I am not sure yet...
Enjoy (I did)!
