Brunch Near 23/Ely E Stop?

carlywood Mar 22, 2007 12:42 PM

Since the 7 train isn't running on the weekends from Manhattan, my friend and I are looking for an alternative since we're not sure we want to trek down to Tournesol.

Any suggestions for something right near this stop?

    It's pretty desolate right around there. There's a kinda OK Puerto Rican lunch counter place right at the corner. Best restaurant around there is probably 5-Star Punjabi a couple of blocks north off 21st, but that's most likely not really suitable for the brunch you seek. Most folks looking for breakfast around there go the Court Square diner over by Jackson under the 7, but I wouldn't recommend it.

      yeah that area is kinda dead...there's a little Italian place near the 7 tracks that might do brunch- also a latino place a short walk down 23rd ave (east direction) maybe they do brunch but I'm not sure....Seriously, I've lived near there for a few years, and believe me, it's dead- you're better off looking elsewhere.
