Greenpoint is the hot foodie neighborhood of the moment. When the lines at Egg (Williamsburg) and Five Leaves (Greenpoint) are crazy, walk a little further north to this gem. The restaurant has a narrow space, a relaxed vibe, and a mostly wooden interior. When it warms up, you can dine in the backyard too.
What to Eat
For a meaty meal, go for the Pork Belly Biscuit, served with sunny side egg, cilantro, pickled onion, and spicy remoulade. For something sweet, the Brioche French Toast with blueberries, candied pecans, and maple cinnamon creme is to die for. And for something healthy, the Roasted Cauliflower Salad will be surprisingly satisfying.
What to Drink
Anella feels like the quintessential brunch spot, warm, easy-going and friendly. Stay close to the traditional brunch theme with a classic Bloody or Mimosa. Bonus: bottomless coffee is served for $3.
Reservations are accepted for parties as small as two.
