Brunching at Egg Shop

What do you know, we’ve got another lovely run to brunch spot up on the blog.  This was from a few weeks back when I persuaded a few November Project peeps to tag along on an early long run around Central Park, down the west side, and deep into SOHO.

IMG_5183All in all it was a nine mile route heading counter-clockwise around Central Park, splitting out along the west side highway, finishing around Houston and then Juicepressing our way to the east side.   When we finally arrived at the restaurant, we were greeted with a 60 minute wait, which then turned into a 90 minute wait.  Well, that’s New York for you.  A land of endless eateries that all require your full party to be present and suggest showing up an hour early just to wait around.  But anyways, the main point of this visit…the eggs.

IMG_5180 Turns out our initial table was given to some fancy schmancy bloggers (possibly famous foreigners). Just as I was about to raise a kerfuffle, the hostess walked over apologetically and offered us free drinks.  Why yes thank you so much, we would be thrilled to enjoy free coffee.

^^ As you might be able to tell, this is not a large area and mostly tables for two.  So, my tip to you is arrive in pairs.  May the odds be ever in your favor.

IMG_5174 ^^ Breakfast and brunch options galore, but I have to say, the dinner menu might have sounded a tad bit better.  Just look under the section labeled “Drunken Eggs”.  Yep, I’ll leave that with you.
