On the heels of the success of Chickpea, Jerry Suqi has opened this charming breakfast-and-lunch-only spot. This time, however, it’s not his mom in the kitchen but chef (and co-owner) Jeffrey Mauro, a Charlie Trotter’s alum, who is putting out twisted classics such as egg sandwiches with pork cheeks and lamb crêpes with Asian pear. Kids can choose from its delicious children’s menu featuring smaller-portioned scrambled eggs with roasted potatoes, buttermilk pancakes, an chicken drumsticks or grilled cheese sandwiches with fries, each $6.
