barmarche: best EV / LES brunch with no line?

Jorel Feb 24, 2007 04:10 PM

I love Clinton Street Bakery, Ninth Street Market and Prune, but I'm done waiting in line for brunch (except for rare occassions). I'm always on the lookout for a very good brunch spot in the East Village, Lower East Side or Noho/Nolita/Soho that I know I can always walk in to.

barmarche on Spring and Elizabeth is the best I've found (good omelettes, good frites). I'm sure others disagree. What's the best brunch spot in this area with no lines?

    Danal. There's sometimes a little bit of a wait, but you can wait inside. Cafe Orlin--same deal.

      Is Danal still open? I thought it closed a while back.

      Good call on Cafe Orlin.

        I went about a month ago and Danal was open.

        That it is. I find it serviceable, but not as god as barmarche. Although, I went to barmarche today and had to wait 30 min for a table at 12:30, so it's quickly becoming not a place with no line.
