Beautiful People, the East Village

Brunching in the East Village
Photo by myself around St. Mark's Place and 1st Avenue, in the East Village.

For some reason, all the customers brunching outdoors this weekend were young, fashionable and female.

Brunch is a meal dear to the heart. As usual, New Yorkers are over the top with their menus. All the mimosas you can drink? Gigantic omelet with a side of home fries? Cheesy grits? Why, of course.

Above, at Cafe Mogador on St. Mark's Place, brunch is served between 9am and 4pm, Saturdays and Sundays. That's some window of time.

Mogador serves up various concoctions of organic poached eggs, with fresh orange juice, along with cappucino or tea. There is always, always a line of people waiting on the sidewalk. Often, customers resemble movie stars.

Time Out New York devotes a whole section to brunching in New York. Their lists include 'Outdoor Brunch Spots', 'Best Rooftop Brunches' and 'Best Brunch Deals'.

In NY-ese, 'brunch' means 'wake-up-late-because-you-spent-last-night-drinking-much-too-much'.

Yum. You've sold this place to me. Now I also have that Beatle tune in my head: "How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people...?"
