Gertie

Time Out says

Inspired by Los Angeles all-day cafes like Gjelina and Sqirl, Gertie serves up bowls and toast with the soul of real New Yorkers. Run by Nate Adler (Huertas), Will Edwards (Marlow Collective) and Flip Biddelman (Huertas), the result is a gorgeous 70-seat spot off the Lorimer L train, in ode to Adler's grandmother, who was born-and-raised in Queens. Here, luncheonette-style dining made for 2019 (there's an Instammable mural designed by artist, Lea Carey). For brunch, you'll find egg 'n cheese on bialys (made in-house by Savannah Turley), the Gertie Breakfast (two sunny eggs, white beans, greens and toast) as well as squash toast. For lunch, there's rotisserie meats, provolone, lettuce and Italian dressing on a challah roll, a smoked fish dish (whitefish salad and melted cheddar on sesame sourdough) as well as a cauliflower melt (spicy cauliflower, pickled peppers and cheese sauce on sesame sourdough). For dinner, you can expect more rotisserie and pot pies as well as high-ball drinks with syrups made in-house.

What’s on

Gertie’s Shabbat Supper Club

Since 2019, GERTIE’s has fed us bialys and babka in the morning, sandwiches on a challah bun for lunch and full rotisserie chickens in the evening. The luncheonette is giving us another opportunity to break bread and foster community with its Shabbat Supper Club. Combining a traditional Shabbat dinner with the hospitality of a midwestern supper club, the dinner series invites guests of all denominations and heritage in the spirit of gathering. Hosted by a rotating series of chefs, writers and influencers, the series kicks off with a Pride Shabbat hosted by Rabbi Matt Green (June 28). The rest of the lineup follows with author Leah Koenig, Zach Engel of Galit and Ellen Yin and Christina McKeough of Philadelphia’s High Street Hospitality.
