Brunch is always exciting, and you never need an excuse or an occasion for it. But don't you get tired of the same old eggs benedict every weekend? If you can't afford a weekend away at some exotic retreat, try out one of these five weekend brunch spots in the East Village that offer something fresh. These Middle Eastern restaurants are sure to expand your palate and introduce some completely new flavors to those less inclined for culinary adventures. The bohemian, laid-back vibe of the downtown area isn't too bad either.
