Post is a little restaurant in Alphabet City where you can get a biscuit sandwich any time of the day. It’s great for brunch, although there isn’t room for groups. They have a bar, a few window seats, and a single table in the back. So come by if you’re dining solo or with one or two friends. The menu is small, and it’s mostly just easy American comfort food (biscuits and gravy, roasted chicken, burger, etc.). If you live nearby, this could be your new go-to spot for a somewhat quick meal.
