This new brunch spot on the Lower East Side is ideally situated to fortify yourself in advance of your next Best Night Ever, or re-fuel following the inevitable conclusion of your last. The breakfast sandwiches are the obvious contenders here, more chock-full than your standard grab and go, rush-hour offering.
Maple turkey sausage and bacon varieties are piled high with egg and cheese, though still technically portable if you truly concentrate. Or, nab a counter or table seat in or outside the cozy locale for decidedly sit-down plates like omelettes, waffles, French toast, and Jamaican jerk chicken, turkey or chorizo burgers. In addition to coffee and an assortment of lemonade and soda, Pig & Butter has beer, wine, and brunch drink favorites.
Pig & Butter is located at 134 Ludlow Street, and is open Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30am–6pm and Friday and Saturday from 9:30am–7pm.
