Brick is a simple, beautiful and welcoming place to go for a nice meal! I totally fell in love immediately the first time I walked in, even though I didn’t get a table that time, but I knew I had to come back! The place is small with one big square community table in the center and a smaller one on the side, where everyone is welcomed to sit. There are also tables outside facing Clérigos tower and all the downtown bustle, but I’d rather stay inside. I love going there for dinner with a group of friends or for a lazy lunch, since as soon as you step in, you’ll immediately feel as if you’re at a friend’s kitchen for a meal and the friendly staff adds a lot to that homely feeling.
The colorful food is beautifully presented on wooden boards, and the fresh juices are delicious. My favorite meal here starts with the roasted vegetable soup, which is divine, followed by the amazing Chicken Tostie, a true explosion of flavors, as it’s served with salad, strawberries, avocado among other well combined ingredients.
Dessert is also a must, sweets are homely baked and my two issues on this are: 1st sharing or not; 2nd what to choose, as everything tastes heavenly. A big characteristic of this place is for sure the smell, as once you step in, you know, by the incredible smell it must taste good.
Don’t forget to book a place at the table in advance!
