weekends are for brunching.

If there’s anything I’ve learned about being a New Yorker, it’s that we live for this little old thing called brunch.

Whether you’re in the mood for breakfast, lunch, booze, or just spending time with friends, brunch can satisfy all of the above.

Jessi and I kicked off the weekend with a late Saturday morning brunch at one of our favorite spots, The Smile.

We both ordered the Baked Eggs and Avocado with crushed tomato sauce and manchego cheese. Served with a side of olive oil-topped sourdough bread, it t was a delicious and hearty meal to start of the day off right (…or in my case, the perfect fuel for a day of Christmas shopping).

On Sunday we brunched at another one of my favorite new spots, The Leadbelly. This time we brought along quite the crew for our (soon to be weekly) FreelyBe brunch series.

The Leadbelly was kind enough to create a prix fixe menu for us, which includes a drink, starter, and entrée. I went with the Kale Caesar Salad and Avocado Toast with soft boiled eggs. Both dishes were so simple yet so out-of-this-world good!

How often do you brunch? Do you prefer breakfast or lunch dishes?
