    One of the most amazing spaces in NY: The original kitchen of an early-19th-c Bond St mansion, lovingly restored. Check out the two massive, original cooking hearths on the E wall near the rear.

    For brunch, get the sweet potato biscuits to share. Then order the baked eggs in tomato sauce with avocado and manchego cheese. So good!

    Comfy neighborhood cafe by morning, quick lunch spot by afternoon, scene-y hangout at night. Fresh, well-cooked food that's healthier (and tastier) than many surrounding options.
