Brunch. This oh-so-American and oh-even-more-so-New York time of decided ease and calculated leisure. This long, ephemeral mealtime that somehow finds itself in no rush despite an ever-creeping Monday. It is the one time a week where we excuse our sense of urgency, and dine thoughtfully, at a pace we only wish was more permanent. The city has far too many amazing options in which to loaf and lounge yourself full. This week, we're in the mood for something fairly specific, fairly plain, but absolutely delicious. And so we toast this week's brunch edit: the best 5 spots to dig in to the brunch classic, the side that really deserves to be a main - toast.
