Knowing that diners are generally a good option for breakfast/brunch, we decided to try the theater location of the Brooklyn Diner as it was down the street from the Second Stage theatre. That’s where we were seeing a matinee of the Cardinal, a 90-minute play where Anna Chlumsky and Adam Pally— as the characters in Greg Pierce’s new play — literally paint their town red.
We both ordered the hearty New Yorker Breakfast ($25) of eggs over easy with crispy bacon, a toasted everything bagel, polenta squares with a pomodoro dipping sauce(that I could do without) plus espresso. A filling breakfast that kept me satiated all day! I’d recommend if you’re in the mood for comfort food while at Times Square.
