Best Restaurant To Park Yourself For Three Square Meals: Pleasantry

Best Restaurant To Park Yourself For Three Square Meals

Pleasantry is named after a street — the building sits at the corner of West 15th and Pleasant — but it’s also the perfect description of this polished-yet-easygoing gem of a restaurant. Their motto — “Sip slow. Drink easy. Eat right.” — feels so doable in this calm, inviting space that a person could return to for breakfast, lunch and dinner… all in the same day. Pleasantry opens at 8 a.m. Tuesday through Friday to serve what they describe as “Midwestern food:” granola, quiche and classic scrambled eggs for breakfast, with lunch options including a butternut squash and rapini sandwich and a pimento cheese burger that will knock your socks off. Dinner service is from 5 to 10 p.m., featuring proteins like ocean trout, pork and cauliflower, and a wine list with organically produced and minimally processed vino. On the weekends, Pleasantry also offers brunch. And while the menu may change with the seasons, you can always get great-tasting simple food nearly any time of the day.
