Meade's Bar

We decided to take advantage of the nice weather and head down to our old stomping ground at the South Street Seaport. We took a quick cab ride down and walked around amid the tourists and headed for the smaller, cozier restaurants just off the main strip of shopping and larger restaurants. Meade's Bar is an unassuming place, it's clean and pretty and the historic building gives it a lot of character. So it looked like a nice but perhaps a little plain place to grab a light brunch. I ordered the Tater pie, which on the printed menu did not have a description. I thought it would be the tater tots in a small casserole, with the extra fried egg I ordered on top. What I got was a hearty surprise, from the bottom there was a layer of tater tots, then chili, then cheese, with the fried egg as the crowning glory. This was delicious, and I completely understand now, why they had a little "great cure for hangovers" next to its listing on the menu. It was absolutely delicious, maybe it's my love of tater tots...but the whole thing together was hearty, flavorful and filling. I highly recommend it, and alcoholic drinks for brunch were $12 but bottomless. John got the egg, cheese and sausage on focaccia and a tropical fruit salad. I had the fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice. Check it out it you are in the neighborhood, Meade is located at 22 Peck St, on the corner of Water St.

***Bonus Chalupa loves visiting the Seaport since most of the restaurants have outdoor seating, they have recently even installed permanent round picnic table/chair combos, so you could just grab some grub and find your own place to sit outside. Outdoor seating is a definite plus for people with dogs. They love the nice weather too.
