East Village Restaurants’ Permanent Brunch for Breakfast Lovers

Daniel Boulud’s Bowery hotspot

New York City brunch served 24/7 is a new concept among East Village restaurants.  Your degree of enthusiasm for the brand new East village restaurant Permanent Brunch can probably best be gauged by your excitement over these two words: bacon bar. Us? We couldn’t wait to sidle on up and choose from a half dozen or so artisanal bacons as part of a recent Saturday night supper.  Permanent Brunch’s all day brunch in New York City is paradise for many. But even if brunch for dinner sounds to you like too much of a good thing? well, on weekends they also serve brunch for brunch at Permanent Brunch.

And a first-rate New York City brunch it is, not just among East Village restaurants. Take, for example, the Ham and Cheese Stuffed French Toast, which is basically an excellent sandwich, the cheese is from Five Spoke Creamery; the ham, Vermont smoked; the bread given the classic French toast treatment, drizzled with Dijon-maple sauce. The green- and wax-bean salad added a nice bit a lively crunch to the meal. This East Village restaurant is paradise for many.  We also devoured a plate of Steak and Eggs, which featured a well-grilled strip of skirt steak, several cubes of wonderfully crunchy rye panzanella, a thoroughly competent egg, a pile of tomatoes for tang, and a surprisingly subtle, slightly sweet steak sauce. At first impression, this East Village restaurant’s food and presentation was nicely done.

And, of course, there’s the Artisanal Bacon Bar, another great perk in addition to all day New York City brunch.  We tried three varieties, and all were winners: the fatty and peppery New Braunfel’s smokehouse from Texas, the crackling Swiss Sugar-Cured Cottage from Missouri, and Kentucky’s own Meacham Hams Country Bacon.  Not only were all three delicious and distinct in their flavors, but all were cooked differently, and properly, to show off their strengths. Dessert was the Daily Doughnut, which is this case was a bowl of Zeppoles, and which were too doughy and underdone, and could have really used some chocolate dipping sauce. Permanent Brunch in Manhattan gives East Village restauraurants a new niche, namely all day brunch in New York City.
