Egg offers a hearty menu full of simple, greaseless (if you will) comfort food. The plain, white painted walls are decoration-less and lack personality. However, white butcher paper lines the wooden tables and a cup of Crayons is provided to unleash you’re inner craftiness as if you were 13 again -love it! All ingredients are either sourced locally and from artisanal producers or grown on the restaurant’s farm out in Oak Hills, NY. Egg also packages and sells its own homemade granola and sustainably grown coffee (served in a fun French-press when dining in). Come here knowing it’s imperative you order the Eggs Rothko. The combo of egg melting into Amy’s fluffy brioche bread with oozing cheese is unbeatable! If you’re looking for something on the sweeter side but can’t resist the thought of that fluffy, gooey bread, the French Toast will do the trick. Egg is a great place for brunch when you want something affordable, easy-going and home-cooked. The wait isn’t too bad (usually 30 min) and don’t forget it’s cash only!
***P.S. If you fall in love with Amy’s Bread, you can pick up your own loaf and sweet treats such as cakes and cupcakes at several storefronts around the city. Locations include: Chelsea Market, West Village and Hells Kitchen.
