Brunch at Egg

A taste of the South by way of Brooklyn, Egg

Egg.  Since last December, I swear, anytime I heard that one-syllable word, I no longer visualized an omelette or an egg-salad sandwich - no, I thought of, in Danielle's-and Ceci's-and Dara's words, "the most awesome brunch ever."  

And while it's taken me almost a year to get over to Egg, I'm pleased to report that my cousin, Shelley, and I made the trek to Williamsburg (Brooklyn) to do what was deemed necessary: try "the most awesome brunch ever."

In my opinion, some of my most favorite meals are those that are simple and comforting.  By that, I mean recipes that aren't made with hundreds of ingredients and dishes that are somewhat familiar.  That being said, it's hard to find a restaurant that does "simple" right.  If I'm going to spend my money for brunch at a restaurant, I'll be damned if I can't get a decent plate of scrambled eggs and bacon - there's nothing worse than making the realization that I could probably whip up a better version at home.  Egg, however, successfully executes "simple" with precision.

From the kitchen's use of local, high quality ingredients to its wallet-friendly, cash-only menu, Egg proved to be a delicious and nostalgic taste of home.

Brunch at Egg: table scape. Egg is a casual restaurant with a small front patio for al-fresco dining. The interior space is warm and cozy, with a decorative splash of hipster and shabby chic.Brunch at Egg: le menu (note that breakfast is served ALL day!)Brunch at Egg: clockwise ---> organic Anson Mills stone-ground grits, homemade hashbrown "cake," two perfectly-poached eggs. I ordered the biscuit on the side and, boy, was I glad I did! So dense and moist, yet incredibly light.
