CLOSED: REOPENED AS “STEAK SHOP”
95 1st Avenue (Between 5th and 6th)
This restaurant is named Permanent Brunch… do I even have to write anything else? My girlfriend just found this place. We ate there yesterday for breakfast, then again today, and I’m pretty sure I had a dream about it last night. Apparently open for just over 6 months now, this place is the answer for all of us who work in nightclubs and never wake up in time to meet the breakfast deadline, those of us who require eggs and a Bloody Mary at 4PM on days other than Saturday and Sunday. And PB’s version of the Bloody Mary comes with wasabi- nice.
This place was great too because there wasn’t a wait on Sunday afternoon and within 5 minutes the waitress had all of our drinks out. (I think brunches in the city are so annoying, you already feel like crap, you always have to wait for a table, and the service is slow at best…)
There are also a few healthy things too; today I had the granola with fruit. Yesterday we shared pancakes and a BLT; both were really good and not too heavy. It is a small place but the open windows and high booth seating make it cute and airy.
Permanent Bruch is good, it’s close to my house and it’s cheap. This blog post is annoyingly positive but what can I say- after a week of working doubles stumbling upon a place called Permanent Brunch yesterday rocked my world. Go there, but not too often, I don’t want to have to start waiting.
