Went to brunch today at Foxy’s Eatery (formerly known as Foxy’s Diner, which the awning still displays). I have to say the food has improved greatly since it used to be a “diner.”
Conveniently located on the north side of Queens Blvd. between 43rd and 44th streets, right next to the now-shuttered Flynn’s Inn pub.
The very affordable $10 brunch menu includes a free drink with each dish. They even have a mango mimosa, which I haven’t seen anywhere else. You must pick between coffee or the mimosa, but a coffee is only $1.25 if you want to get both.
This “SpanakoBenedikt” consists of two eggs atop a spinach pie. A generous serving of hollandaise sauce covers the entire dish, which also include homefries. It was pretty good all around, although perhaps a little bland.
An unusual brunch menu item, the enchiladas verdes with eggs are good, but also a little bland and perhaps missing some spice. The accompanying black beans unfortunately leave a lot to be desired. Try one of the area’s Mexican restaurants for good beans and enchiladas, and stick to the more traditional brunch fare at Foxy’s.
