That Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese in the header looks delectable, doesn’t it? That’s not a stock photo from their website either, the mac & cheese at Jacob’s Pickles really looks that good and tastes even better.
Piquant is a place I first visited several years ago when the person I was dating at the time had a friend come to town for her birthday. It has since been a semi-regular brunch spot for me when I brave the journey to Brooklyn on the weekends (a.k.a the 2 or 3 trains are functioning properly).
If you’re not paying close attention when you walk down West Broadway looking for Bâtard, there’s every chance you will miss the modest, compact storefront. Much like Beauty and Essex on the Lower East Side, the unassuming exterior gives way to a gorgeous open space amenable to people watching and conversation.
