If you did not try them here, you don’t know really the Eggs Rothko ! You have to come in this hip Williamsburg’s spot close to Bedford Avenue to order this dish : an easy-cooked egg in a slice of Amy’s brioche and topped with Grafton cheddar. Served with broiled tomatoes and a side of meat (the best bacon we had in town !) or seasonal vegetables, it’s just fantastic and so cheap ($9). Maybe one of the best dishes we ordered in New York. Moreover, the rest of the menu is pretty varied ; the food always amazing.
Country Ham served on a biscuit with homemade fig jam, Grafton cheddar, and a side of grits ($9). Home-made chorizo with eggs any style, salsa verde, pickled jalapenos, and toast ($11). Three organic pancakes with Vermont maple syrup ($8,50). Everything is fresh, organic and local, coming from Oak Hill Farms, New York. Indeed, Egg got about 6 acres of land, and every year they turn a little more of it over to growing vegetables. Isn’t it great ?! Back to the menu : you also can order their tasty limonade to enjoy your experience in this solid brunch place. However, be sure to plan some extra time into your day as you will be waiting for awhile. It’s the only bad point but… hopefully, Egg serves brunch untill 6 p.m.
What about the space ? Pretty small but neat, kind of Ikea-esque with white walls and light wood tables/chairs. And the tables, always cramped, are very close together. We don’t forget the small terrace and the crayons for doodling on the paper covering the table : funny idea to wait the plate. With Buttermilk Channel in Carroll Gardens, it’s simply the best brunch we had in Brooklyn and probably in Manhattan with Prune. Enjoy your brunch !
