What was once the old Breslin Hotel has been reinvented as the über-hip Ace Hotel, and its attached restaurant (or, rather, gastropub), The Breslin, is fittingly trendy, in a retro sort of way. The faded ceiling may be the only remaining feature from the turn-of-the-century Breslin original, but the revamped restaurant space still feels historic, with a grand, old-British barroom vibe–there are curtained leather booths, an oak bar, and a meat-filled menu shaped by chef-partner April Bloomfield (of The Spotted Pig renown). Gastronomes and fashionable hipsters alike are drawn by its with its chic, carefully cluttered look and the hearty offerings like guinea-fowl terrine, housemade sausages, and cask-drawn ale.
An eclectic mix of gastonomes, hipsters, families, and serious pork lovers.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Go for trendy casual look, like a chic sweater paired with leggings, stylish boots, and a colorful accessory or two.

A date; significant other; friends; family
WHY WE LIKE IT
The expertly crafted cuisine gives this spot an upscale edge. At the same time, the worn, casual surrounds keep it comfortable enough for a low-key meal with family or friends.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Except during breakfast, this place is perpetually packed.
GOOD TO KNOW
Reservations aren’t taken. Well, save for the 12-seat round table by the kitchen, which treats paying parties to either a whole suckling pig dinner or a lamb dinner. The Breslin is the brainchild of The Spotted Pig’s April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman. Those in for breakfast shouldn’t miss boutique coffeehouse Stumptown just next door (also located in the Ace Hotel).
