Eggs at the Egg Shop
Some of my favorite foods fall under the category “breakfast” and I always take brunch seriously so when I stumbled upon Egg Shop on Instagram, I immediately added it to my ongoing brunch spot list (brunch list). They have a couple of locations throughout the city but I went to the one in Williamsburg.
Egg Shop specialized in, you guessed it: eggs.
The vibe was simple and fresh and there were traces of eggs throughout the decor and almost everything on the menu had eggs incorporated into the dish. Our table split french toast with a chocolate ganache, blueberries and slices of green apple. It was heavenly but extremely decedent. For my own meal I chose the option to create my own breakfast sandwich with sunny side eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese and a spicy aioli. It was delicious.
While the food was good, I will say the service at this location was subpar. Being a former waitress, I value getting the customer’s order correct and our server clearly did not since we had to send our order back.
But overall, the food was good, the atmosphere was fun and the company was even better and I’d recommend that any breakfast lover try it out.
Have you ever been to Egg Shop?
Central Park in the fall
Central Park in the fall is one of my favorite places in New York City. The air is crisp, the sun is out, and the leaves are changing. Recently, I spent the afternoon wandering aimlessly through the park. It was a nice change from the busy, fast paced week.
What’s your favorite fall spot?
The Minimalist Closet of Sara Berman
While on the job hunt I’m trying to put down my laptop, take a step back from my applications, and explore all that New York City has to offer. Recently, I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see Sara Berman’s closet. Sara Berman was an immigrant who moved to New York and kept a meticulous closet.
Her closet was minimalistic and monochromatic; she only chose to wear white. Even though I tend to wear all black, I felt inspired by Berman’s choices: everything had a place and there was no excess. The simplicity made me reflect on my own closet.
Since moving to New York and living in a small apartment, it has been a goal of mine to try to adapt a more minimalist lifestyle. I’ve been weeding through my clothes and donating pieces that I don’t wear. Though it’s a slow process, I have been trying to be more mindful of what I actually need when I’m shopping. For items i’m not donating, I’m in the process of making a Poshmark account to start selling my clothes that I no longer wear (stay tuned).
It’s still a work in progress as I’m finishing the final touches on my room (a full room post coming soon) but here is what my closet looks like. Keeping my clothes neat and orderly helps me see what I have, what I need and what I can do without.
In the coming months, be on the lookout for more detailed posts about my closet, how I choose to organize, and what to look for while shopping.
I would love to hear your thoughts!
