Sunday Brunching in New York is a serious thing. It’s so serious that my last brunch lasted 7.5 hours! Yesterday I had the pleasure of feasting with two incredible people, Mark Absher, a social media and marketing master and the lovely Dee Ardelean, a writer, illustrator and dancer. Mark referred to it as our “Power Brunch.”
Using my FAVORITE app ever, HOPPIT, we decided to dine at “Sweet Revenge.” When we saw that they paired beers and wines with their unique cupcakes, we knew we had to go. Dee was also very excited for Sweet Revenge because as she wrote, “the folks that work there do other things in the arts and they advertise that on their website.”
While we waited for our food to be served, our talks quickly turned to discussions of sustainability, social media, self publishing, consulting, creative retreats, and industry conferences. It took me one second to decide what to order. I went for their Signature Red Velvet Belgian Waffles that was served with whipped cream cheese, salted caramel syrup, raspberry sauce and fruit. I may have overdosed on SUGAR! I recommend the combo of red velvet waffles and hot chocolate wine maybe once every few months.
The other thing to love about Sweet Revenge…..well, the name. I love their name. Also they make incredible cupcakes. Look at their signature list.
Sweet Revenge® – Peanut Butter Cake, Ganache Filling with Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting
Pure – Mexican Vanilla Cake with Mexican Vanilla Buttercream
Dirty – Valrhona Chocolate Cake with Dark Chocolate Truffle
Crimson & Cream – Raspberry Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Sweet Revenge has a great ambiance. The service is wonderful. I think while we were there the owner was blogging in the back or at least, the manager. I liked that. The crowed was hip, eclectic and fun. The prices were reasonable for the neighborhood. And the food was YUMMY!
