Brunch for Two at Buttermilk Channel

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach… Well, you’ll definitely be Dad’s favorite child after he downs a plate of fried pork chops and cheddar waffles at this Brooklyn bistro. (Sampling each one of the four different Bloody Mary’s probably won’t hurt either!)
