Quantcast

Empire Biscuit opened over a week ago and already it’s pretty tapped, but we thought it was worth a mention for the fact that it serves (as you might guess) only biscuits amidst a Scandinavian style decor–and plans to be a 24/7 biscuit destination by Monday. That would make its tag line “Breakfast Lunch Dinner Drunk” even more apt.

We took a trip last week when it was still pretty quiet and ordered a “Snuggah Boo” from its “Made for Each Other Menu” and a custom biscuit with Pear and Vinho Verde Butter on a Country Style biscuit (a note: the country style has lard in it).

Empire Biscuit loves lard so much, it’s their hashtag:

Since Paris has been getting all of NYC’s trends (food trucks, cupcakes, Brooklyn Brewery beer), perhaps it’s only a matter of time when a “Biscuiterie” pops up!
