    And to think New York Magazine even has a resident porkologist (Josh Ozersky) on staff. He tells you where you can buy a pound of thick cut Oscar Mayer bacon for $6.99 a pound.

          This place has got more business than your dog has fleas. When we arrived at ten to nine AM, there was already a line about ten deep, and the moment they opened the doors, the place got swamped. I dunno if this is a function of their recent opening or the early summer let's-get-out-for-breakfast-on-such-a-nice-day enthusiasm springing up among the young and hearty in the neighborhood. The opening wasn't even that recent anymore. Probably young blood and bedevilment.
          There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm for breakfast around town these days. Did you read the New York magazine article describing the city's best breakfast in that hipster haven of Williamsburg, Brooklyn? Get a load of this: "chef-owner George Weld has forged a modest kingdom from local-free-roaming-chicken’s eggs and artisanal heirloom grits." I'm sure you've noticed all the local, free-roaming chickens running the streets last time you walked through Brooklyn. And anybody who uses the words "artisanal," "heirloom" and "grits" in the same sentence clearly does not have a good picture of a)how grits are made and b)the grit-consuming demographic in this country.

          So this was an excerpt from my review of Community Food and Juice on the Upper West Side.
          I wrote more, but I think it's clear what I thought about the NY Mag article.

            You are seriously underestimating the drawing power of being named best overall breakfast in a major magazine.

            I must have missed the part of the article that claimed the eggs came from Brooklyn.

            Absolute nonsense. Top chefs use rustic products in creative ways every day. In response to that, new and interesting versions of tried and true ingredients find their way into the market. Why is that negative?

              I agree with you totally Pigiron. And being "controversial" and "edgy" doesn't make you "interesting." And yes I realize the potential irony in my statement.

                  If you're up for an excursion on the 7 train - try La Flor at 52nd street stop. Everything they do is great - not just breakfast. Some mexican egg based dishes and scrumptious vanilla french toast. The recent whole wheat bluberry pancakes were delicious too. You won't find long lines, attitude or a shocking check either!
