McKiernan is the baby (in age and size) of the Liverpool-Joe Beef family, opened for lunch Tuesday through Friday and serving up a decadent, tasty brunch on Saturday. For brunch, I like their Scone with Creme and Salade de fruits ($10) or their Challa Pain Dore, Bacon and Eggs ($14), with a Mimosa ($9). However, if bite-after-bite you want a mouthful of basically every savoury breakfast ingredient known to man-kind, (think bacon, eggs, sausage, cheese, artery-clogging...) try their Johnny Cakes ($11) or Breakfast sandwich ($13). They are decidedly brilliant.
This 12 seat luncheonette is small and always bustling, so make sure to go early to wait (before your hunger strikes) as they don't take reservations...

Unfortunately, McKiernan has now closed and made way to a second room, replete with oysters and great bar seats, for Joe Beef. No word on them starting a brunch service...(and so I'm still dreaming of Johnny Cakes!)
