Brunch @ Supper and a Walk along the Pier

19 May

Sunday I went to one of my favorite places for brunch: Supper.  With exposed brick, stained-glass windows, and an eclectic mix of chandeliers, the East Village establishment fits in with the view of downtown Manhattan I had in the ‘90s—cozy and sort of bohemian.  I almost exclusively have Eggs Florentine for Sunday brunch but when I go to Supper I get Molly’s French Toast.  It comes with strawberry butter and freshly cut strawberries, bananas, blueberries, and raspberries.  It’s hard to say whether I love raspberries or Hollandaise sauce more….

After brunch we walked over to Chelsea Piers, which I’d never actually been to before.  There’s a trail outside where you can walk along the harbor.  The salty smell of the river reminded me of my childhood.  There’s a ship near there that was converted to a bar called The Frying Pan.  I’d first heard about it a few years ago when I was covering Slideluck Potshow, which was having its after-party there, for Resource Magazine, but I hadn’t actually gone because a woman journalist going to the pier at midnight seemed like a good way to inspire a Law & Order episode.  Now that I actually went to visit it—in the daytime—it was so cool!  They had an actual train car onboard the boat—it was the turducken of transportation!
