Malai Kitchen, a Bruncher’s Paradise

by Steven Doyle

Patio season is officially full on after the devastatingly hot and dry summer. The pooches are leading their sexy owners by the string past the cabanas that are playing soothing street music as cars bustle by to find a spot of their very own.

This is high season for brunch and none is sexier than the digs at Malai Kitchen, the fresh-faced Thai-Vietnamese  kitchen in the West Village compound off McKinney.

There you will find the restaurant prodigies and husband and wife team of Yasmin and Braden Wages busily running about tending to details. Details that we found amazing during our happy brunch time at Malai this past weekend.     Continue reading

Parigi has one of the very best burgers in town. Only sold at lunch and brunch, the burger is an ever revolving plate of joy. Let’s just begin with the word joy and see where that takes us today.

Sitting at brunch for a burger was a bit difficult for me since I am aware of the menu and know of items that are certain “must have’s” such as the deviled eggs. These tiny beasts are always a correct choice with each visit and is another revolving dish that is created by a different staff member each day. I have never tested this claim, but assume if I dined at Parigi 365 times in a row (gasp, another joy), I would sample 365 different recipes  for deviled eggs. Worthy of attempt to be sure.
