Best eggs in NYC!

notomatoesplease Jun 6, 2008 09:31 PM

Hello all! This is actually my first post, but when I thought about where to find this information, I immediately knew Chow would be the best place to find it. So, the story: I'm writing a book. It pretty much deals with how I'm a picky eater, and how I'm trying to get over my dislike of certain foods by trying the best of these foods that I possibly can.

So, my question is, where can I go to find the best eggs in New York? Scrambled, poached, fried, quiches, frittatas, everything. I want to eat as many egg dishes as I can to get over my pickiness.

Any help any of you can offer would be lovely. Thanks!

    I love this place called Petite Abeille- their egg dishes are really good (I have had almost all of their omelets) but make sure to order their french fries also (soooo good).

      Let's see...good eggs?

      Omelette: good
      Tortilla: La nacional
      Lox scramble: Barney Greengrass
      Scotch eggs: Myer's of Keswick
      Balut: Elvie's Turo-Turo
      Egg pancake: Woorijip

      That should get you started (on statins).

        Pastis in the meat packing district has the best scrambled egg breakfast I have ever had. They make something so simple taste so good.

          I think Teddies in Williamsburg Brooklyn on Berry and N 8th offers some great tasty egg dishes. I like the Chipotle and Nopalitos Omelet. Yummy. Many other tasty options. I have only eaten these on weekend brunch, not sure if they serve them at other times. By the way... I really dislike eating eggs too but I crave these.

            It is silly to order because it can be so easy to make why spend money on it, but my favorite, pure egg experience in the city is the soft boiled egg at Le Pain Quotidienne. I usually go to the one on Broadway and 12th so I am not sure of the others. But the egg is so fresh tasting and boiled just so it is nice and runny and served with enough bread to spread the egg on, dip in the egg, and a little left over for jam. It is expensive for something so simple, but good.

                  Prune has a fantastic coddled egg with chicken. Five points has great baked eggs and other varieties that are pretty fantastic as well.
