Mark Birnbaum in a New York Minute

A lot can happen in a New York Minute. In case you missed it, yesterday was Mussel Monday's at Mark Birnbaum's Lexington Brass restaurant downtown. On such a beautiful day in New York City how can you go wrong with some of the freshest food in town.

Mark Birnbaum Lexington Brass

Aside from the delicious seafood that Lexington Brass serves up, there's a slew of enjoying Lobster Mac n Cheese, Deviled Eggs, French Onion Soup, Braised Short Ribs and platters of oysters and littlenecks at any hour, from breakfast to lunch through dinner and late evening reprieves.

When Mark Birnbaum and EMM Group opened the restaurant back in 2011 he had a whole new dining experience in mind. The 100-seat American bistro located on the ground level of the luxury Hersha Group features classic American bistro fare conceptualized and executed by Abe & Arthur’s Executive Chef Franklin Becker.

Examiner.com had this to say about the fine NYC restaurant:
Patrons will be treated to sophisticated yet familiar favorites from a menu of fresh, locally sourced, sustainable dishes. Highlights from the breakfast menu include jam-filled pancakes with berries & lemon cream and a Spanish scramble with chorizo, rock shrimp and hash. For lunch, midtown moguls can indulge in a sirloin steak sandwich with truffle fries, or opt for lighter fare with grilled shrimp & couscous or yellowfin tuna ciabatta with avocado & tomato jam. For dinner, patrons can enjoy a range of options from buttermilk fried chicken and biscuits to sweet corn ravioli with chanterelles to spicy fluke ceviche with watermelon. Lexington Brass also will offer a thoughtful beverage program, which includes kombucha tea, three local wines and four local beers on tap, including one signature lager which was crafted and brewed in EMM Group’s name.
Lexington Brass is open 7 days a week. Stop in today and enjoy some of New York's finest of food and drinks. And don't forget that tonight, Tuesdays at the Jazz Room at The General continue with music by DJ Sinatra. If you'd like to reserve your seat don't hesitate to shoot an email over to jazzroom@emmgrp.com.
