SquareMeal Review of Sunday in Brooklyn

Bronze Award

It’s not often we’re treated to a restaurant from across the pond, but one of Brooklyn’s best-loved brunch spots has made its way to a well-heeled corner of Notting Hill. Bringing with it signature upbeat American-style service and a peppy crowd of staff, Sunday in Brooklyn has a buzzy neighbourhood vibe.

The interiors are a welcome mix of pared back wooden tables and chairs and a hanging foliage display that takes centre stage above a communal dining space. The wrap around windows allow for top-class people watching and give the room a fresh, airy feel.

Fun cocktails – like the Honeybear on Holiday – set the tone for an informal meal. In contrast to the description (and the resulting presentation in a cutesy glass bear) it wasn’t too sweet and very drinkable thanks to a combo of bourbon, scotch, lemon, and honey cut with the slightest edge of bitters.

Despite being famed for its brunch offering in the US, the London outpost started out life serving dinner only. Here a cold smoked artichoke allows you to simultaneously feel smug in your sophistication for ordering something so grown-up, while also giving you a reason to eat with your hands. Tender leaves, dunked in a rich aioli are easily devoured and play the perfect precursor to plates piled with chips and burgers. The Korean chicken burger wasn’t massive but came with wedges of pickle and piles of salty chips so made a good-sized main none the less. Covered in sticky, spicy, sour sauce and topped with coleslaw, this was – frankly – better than we were expecting and got more addictive as we made our way through it. The grilled pork was robustly flavoured too – all knarly barbecued edges with a smoky edge and crispy curry leaves served on top of potatoes rolled around in a palate cleansing herb oil.

Here’s where the devastating blow lies though, the soft serve machine was out of order on our visit. With a dessert list that solely offers ice cream, sweets weren’t an option, and the kitchen didn’t come up with a temporary alternative. 

Despite dessert drama, the menu at Sunday in Brooklyn sings of a team passionate to put top-quality produce onto plates in a fun and interesting way and if you’re in the area it’s well worth a pitstop.

About Sunday in Brooklyn

Sunday in Brooklyn brings a little corner of New York to our own capital city. Its London site is found in leafy Notting Hill, but Sunday in Brooklyn was born in the trendy Williamsburg area of New York and has since become a much-loved fixture of the dining scene in the city. The original opened in 2016 with founders Todd Enany and Adam Landsman at the helm, with chef Jaime Young heading up the kitchen.

While the London site – the first international location for the brand – retains much of the original’s appeal in terms of friendly service and an American menu, it also has distinctly local aspects too. New dishes for the UK have been created to sit alongside the playful twists on American classics. The restaurant’s most popular plates include skirt steak with chimichurri and ‘clams casino’ which are cooked with bacon and topped with garlicky breadcrumbs.

As you might expect, weekend brunches are a big deal here, with biscuits and gravy bringing stateside flavours to west London, while chocolate s’mores should satisfy any sweet tooth. Crisp wafer cookies are sandwiched around toasted marshmallows and topped with chocolate soft serve for the ultimate treat.

In keeping with the spirit of the original, the London team sources ingredients from local suppliers to showcase the best of British produce. There are also regularly changing specials on offer to strike a careful balance between keeping everyone’s old favourites in play while at the same time consistently offering something new to try.

The drinks list is made up of natural wines as well as signature cocktails like the Honeybear on Holiday which is a mix of Fiji rum, Amontillado sherry, apricot, pineapple, lime, cumin honey.

The space itself is a beautiful two-floor corner site on Westbourne Grove with wrap-around windows and cosy interiors flooded with natural light. Interiors echo the original sibling site to create a laidback neighbourhood feel.
