    Apparently Feb 21 was the FIRST DAY EVER they offered their burger w/ a duck egg... and it's the most delicious thing ever. (beware: a little sloppy tho)

    Sit at the chef's counter for brunch if you can. Small menu, but pretty reliable for both food and cocktails. Brussels sprouts (when in season) and sticky date cake are great.

    Order many small plates, like this cavatelli with beef ragu, then split hanger steak as your main. If there's a long wait, head across the street to Long Island bar for killer pre-dinner cocktails.

    Pork chop melts in your mouth, there seasonal cocktails are excellent as well! Summer salad, crostini, oysters and dessert doughnuts are all must. Fantastic eats, service and ambiance.

    Part of the restaurant's push for sustainability are nose-to-tail practices: Colonie recently switched to entirely sourcing its beef from a small farm in Pennsylvania and butchering the cows in-house. Read more

    Voted our Best Eggs Benny in 2014, this biscuit Benedict is easily our favorite dish at Colonie. Featuring a crispy house-made biscuit, smoked ham & poached egg, it's topped with a unique Hollandaise. Read more

    Share small plates (the egg salad crostini is rich with lardo but not overwhelming), get a pasta, and split the Bavette (steak). Save space for the sticky date cake, it's moist, sugary, and amazing!

    Killer brunch, the duck hash is the most popular item for a reason. Sit at the bar, get a bartender to make you a custom cocktail, anything with bourbon.

    I had the Empire State Sour cocktail, yum :) The House Ricotta was delicious. The Pork Chop was a bit too salty for me, but my friend really enjoyed the Butcher's Cut. End with Sticky Date Cake!

    Great brunch, loved everything we had. Best brunch burger I've had and I typically don't like eggs on my burger, def beats out Saxon & Parole's burger. Food here is made with love and you can taste it

    Excellent for dinner with friends/colleagues. Cocktails are always on point, but the consistency & creativity of the food that pulls you back. End it with a glass of Madeira with the sticky date cake!

    I've never been to a spot that cared more about its product from farm to check. Sit with Chef Andrew and crew at the kitchen counter. Order doughnuts, duck hash, burger, date cake, and french press

    Menu consists of comforting, familiar fare, nothing too weird, but prepared with care and attention to detail. Love the high ceilings and open kitchen. Attractive, non-snarky staff. Two thumbs up. <3

    The Colonie Burger has a grass-fed beef patty, topped with beet ketchup, aged cheddar, bacon, and cucumbers. It came with a side of grilled corn. The bacon's a bit tough, but the burger is tasty. Read more

    Possibly my favorite brunch place in downtown Brooklyn. First time? Order the scramble, crostini w/ ricotta, and a side of Brussels sprouts. Wash it down with a delicious crisp michelada.

    For $15, the spaghetti squash is not really as filling as a pasta dish might be, but if you're looking for something light, flavorful, and delicious this is it. Read more

    Duck hash is amazingly good. Warm mini donuts wonderful. Biscuit Benedict good. House cured salmon and potato pancakes a bit disappointing - salmon bland and pancakes a little too crispy.

    If a garden could grow a fresh, delicious cocktail, it'd be the "Cool Hand Cuke". Unique, tasty & a perfect drink to sip as you wait for a table (they don't take reservations, but the wait was fun).

    Black mission fig crostini were amazing! Also, the mamasita and autum squash agnolotti. Fun to get a bunch of things and share because portions are a little small but everything is delicious!

    Even if you are so full that you can't even consider dessert, you need to order the "Date Cake" -- it's like lick-the-plate-clean-good which is exactly what we did and it was weird.

    Spaghetti and crostini are good, but for a place w oysters - they only offer one kind for a 1/2 dozen order. Who does that? Skip the grilled salad. Heard brunch is good, not worth hype for dinner.

    Colonie was disappointing. The waitress was overly pushy. The pork chop was delicious, but was extremely fatty. The extreme darkness of the restaurant made it hard to eat since I couldn't see my food.
