Brooklyn’s Egg Draws a Crowd

Which came first, Southern food in New York or Egg?

Eater just added a new feature, called Brunch Bunch, in which they visit a popular brunch spot and canvas the crowd to find out why folks are queued up and how long they’ll wait for a table. The second installment featured Southern hotspot, Egg, famed for George Weld’s version of his grandmother’s buttermilk biscuits (which he shared with me here). Among the waiters (as in, line-sitters, not servers): a punk rock musician, a janitor and the manager of Frankie’s Spuntino. Not only is this City loving the South right now, it’s willing to wait an hour or more to sample her vittles. Amazing.
