You’ve got to love a nice egg. Packed with protein, scientifically proven to shift a hangover, and as of five minutes ago, good for us. And what’s more, eggs are one of the most versatile foods, and if you don’t believe us, just have a look at the menu at Egg Shop in New York’s Nolita neighbourhood. Eggs every which way you can think of, and some that you never would have thought of! Executive Chef Nick Korbee has a menu split into three sections: Custom Egg and Cheese (the classic preparations), Sandwiches, and the intriguing Cruisers (the non-sandwich sandwich, served in a cup).
The potential of the humble egg to hit the spot day and night is what led first-time restaurateurs Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis to set-up shop, along with a wish to bridge the gap between bodega delis and expensive brunch places. As well as nutritious meals, there’s a number of healthy tomato juice drinks on offer called Bloody Marys, and some other American staples such as mimosas and screwdrivers. Josh Farley of WRK Design cracked the Egg Shop interior with a simple black and white scheme highlighted with minty fresh pale greens. Blonde wood benches give a bit of a beach vibe, and vintage touches include the 1940s industrial lights and the salvaged French school chairs.
