As the weather starts to turn into to chilly days and cool nights, the desire for hibernation and nesting sets in. We still need to eat, if not now, more than ever in order to fit into our annual winter fat suits. And fall is the time to start the official season of home culinary gatherings.
This past weekend my roommate Sarah and I invited over three good friends for a lazy Sunday brunch consisting of homemade waffles, spicy bloody marys and four-legged love. Our dear friends, Marcos, Mikee and the fiercely present Rita stopped by to listen to Lyle Lovett, read latin Cosmo, try on fur hats and dig into fresh homemade waffles.
The Breakfast Club isn’t just the name of an ’80s movie, it’s also the name of best breakfast sandwich I’ve ever tried. It’s from Canadian burger institution Harvey’s and believe me, it was go-od! Yes, I said was. You watched them fry an egg over-easy on the griddle, top it with bright-orange processed cheese, add a couple slices of tomato, a piece or two of crispy bacon and pack it all together between a toasted bun. Oh man, it was my morning meal of choice, and it clocked in at an affordable $2.50. Then suddenly, everything changed.
Egg (135 N 5th St), a southern-style restaurant, serves up possibly the most egg-ceptional brunch in the Brooklyn borough. I heard this place was legendary, so when a good friend, Naomi, and I set out Sunday for a retail-therapy mission we knew it would be the perfect place to fuel our bodies. There was some serious credit-card damage to be done and we needed the energy to last the day. How did we gear up for the pending shopping hours ahead? Simple, by ordering the Eggs Rothko ($8.50).
The words “food” and “school” conjure up nightmarish memories of lunch ladies’ in hairnets, bland chicken burgers and lumpy gravy over limp fries. So it’s a treat to have those experiences erased and replaced with images that are much more visually appealing. Brunch time at School Bakery and Café (70 Fraser Ave.) in Liberty Village is a something I’ll have fond memories about for a long time.
