Took way too long to get this Dutch pancake. But it was pretty tasty. Erred with ricotta and poached apples.
I wasnt super impressed by the salads at Inoteca in the lower east side but I did enjoy the truffled egg toast. It consisted of a thick slice of brioche with a truffled egg (probably an egg stored in a container with a truffle overnight) and fontina baked on top served over sautéed asparagus. It also comes with bottarga. I opted for the original.

Breakfast has never been more on point. If you like French food, you know, Croque Monsieurs, lots of ham and poached eggs, this is your place: The Little Next Door. I actually got a Croque Madame, lathered with cheese, thinly slice ham and topped with a sunny side up egg, served with a small side salad.
If you haven’t been to Jodie’s in Albany, you should go, preferably on a weekend, meet Jodie and have a breakfast. Clear your schedule for the rest of the day though, because the food is heavy and all you’ll want to do afterwards is nap and watch football. There’re a few other things you should know: it’s tiny, they’ll talk your ear off, and get the fried chicken. That’s pretty much it. They only serve the fried chicken breakfast (get it with grits or with the eggs) on Saturday and Sunday.
Get a poaching pan, poach the eggs, toast the english muffin, slice the tomato and avocado, fry the bacon, and sprinkle the mozzarella and hot sauce.
Tomato, onion, mushroom, spinach and ricotta omelette with turkey bacon, baby yukon gold potatoes and a trio of toasts topped with the pistachio pesto, blueberry jam, and sweet Cheeseboard butter.
I picked up the ricotta from Whole Foods the other day because the two guys who make it were there giving out free samples. Its incredible and I would say, even if you’re lactose intolerant, its worth trying.
A little breakfast: zucchini flower omelette, olive bread toast, fix and strawberry.
