Greenpoint Eats: Hail Mary 

Hail Mary is a fine new brunchery and dinner date spot gracing the North Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. This title of this restaurant has less to do with the New Testament, and more to do with a game ending play in a football game… and they make a tasty burger.

Overview of supper: Mac and cheese, Brussel sprouts with hummus (this may have been my favorite dish of all three), and of course the double cheeseburger (above).

I’ve never had to drink a manhattan out of a punch glass before. A little bit of a dainty vessel for a whiskey drink (I would have preferred a rocks glass), but the cocktail was well-made. Also, they do a happy hour on the weekends even, so it pays cash dividends to get here early and beat the wait for a table.

A shot of the interior. Very kitschy, if you’re into that kind of thing. Like I said earlier, a great date spot. I think I need to come back for brunch.

Also, check out this funfetti layer cake that they make!! Another reason to go back…
