Brunch-a-licious

Went here for brunch and was not disappointed. We enjoyed the coddled eggs with chicken. Great flavors and a nice balance of savory with some acidic bite to keep it from being overwhelming.

The food here was delicious. Not a lot of space between you and your fellow diners. Use this to your advantage to figure out what looks good before you order. Everything we had was excellent. If we had more time in NYC we would have gone again I think.

Great food and service! Really enjoyed our visit. It's super popular so you may need to wait for a seat.

Loved it. I don't usually like Bloody Marys, but these were incredible. The food is very good too. We went on a Sunday at 13.00 and had to wait 45min, so be prepared. The place is too small for its popularity, but I think it's worth it

The toasted manti is a must have...the pork chops a milanese was also very very good.This restaurant is a little surprise tucked in 1st St in Soho. Dessert was a bit disappointing, though - almond ice cream was bland. It is necessary to reserve.

Been awhile since last meal, but did not disappoint. Dined on grilled brazini with green cabbage as side while spouse chose batter dipped pork chop with charred carrots and beets. Both were extraordinary especially the brazini skin in lemon with sea salt. Service remains hip with intimate atmosphere.

I liked the service, especially the charming bartender but the food was just not good. The Pork Chop Milanese was greasy and tasted like it was cooked in old oil. The branzino was overcooked. I'd wanted to eat here for a long time and I was SO disappointed. The passionate chef that wrote that wonderful book has left the building.

The brunch here is top-notch and it is no secret. You will often wait up to an hour for the privilege of dining here. Eggs benedict fantastic, the potatoes fantastic, the carbonara fantastic. I think you get the point.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
