We all know that brunch can be an exhausting endeavour but sometimes you just don’t want to make breakfast and McDonald’s again would just mean things have gotten out of hand.
So we were happy when we found a place called Aviv, just steps from Dupont station that accepted open table reservations. I already liked this place, it means I wouldn’t have to stand in some ridiculous line for eggs.
The menu is a middle eastern style but still with classics like bacon and eggs and pancakes. The place wasn’t very busy when we got there at 10:45am so if reservations aren’t your style, you likely won’t have to wait too long for a table anyways.
While we waited for friends, we started with dessert, which seems to be our thing these days.
It was banana bread pudding with Nutella so it was of course delicious, you can’t go wrong.
For my main, I had the beef brisket hash and it was also very good.
Cheese, meat, potatoes – how can you go wrong?
The service was great and it was reasonably priced. They have a small patio for those so inclined. I’d recommend aviv if you’re looking for a casual and easy brunch on the subway!
