It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Breakfasts.
“La Bonbonniere in the West Village, where I always have the same breakfast: two eggs over easy, three sage sausage links, buttered whole-wheat toast (that’s the healthy part), and bad coffee.” –Robert Sietsema
” I drool over Prune’s sausage and oyster dish. A coil of sausage, a handful of raw oysters, thick slices of bread, and stewed tomatoes for smearing on any and all of the components. It’s straightforward and simple. Something I’m dying to replicate at home.” –Lauren Bloomberg
“For a working breakfast, I tend to go to Cookshop a lot, where I go for the super-yummy breakfast pizza (bacon, eggs, mozzarella, and spinach). For a weekend, low-key breakfast, I’ll go to Elephant & Castle, the West Village pub/restaurant that hasn’t changed since I was a kid, and I’ll get an omelet of sorts. And if it’s just a coffee breakfast, I’ll go to City Bakery for a pretzel croissant and a cuppa joe.” –Lauren Shockey
