If your weekend plans revolve around alfresco brunching, you should go ahead and cancel your reservations. Weather reports say that it's going to be a pretty nippy weekend. Instead, how about staying home and whipping up some soup? Read a good book. Watch Portlandia.
Coming up on their seven-year anniversary, East Village Luzzo's is the Italian stallion of red-sauce joints. Frequented by both celebrities and mere mortals, the restaurant puts out consistently heart-warming food. Owner Michele Iuliano may be a primo pizza guy (his other restaurants include Tribeca's Da Mikele and Ovest in Chelsea), but he also makes a damn good soup.
