L’amour L’asso

On the corner of Mott st. and Kenmare st. in Nolita lies this hip jewel. In a stunning display of cosmic synergy, this was the only brunch spot that would take a last minute (aka day before) reservation for nine, that just so happened to serve almost everything on the brunch menu gluten free! The $20 brunch comes with bottomless mimosas (or bloody marys), and bottomless they were; for an hour, that is.

Friedman’s serves delicious seasonal food in an atmosphere that is both homey and sophisticated- a place where they offer both fresh squeezed lemonade and multiple beers on tap, and it just makes sense. With a mix of bars, tables, and booths; chalkboard walls and large windows, there is nothing ordinary about this restaurant. Even more appealing to me, I’ve yet to find similar gluten-free comfort food that surpasses Friedman’s anywhere else in the city. Friedman’s Lunch started in Chelsea Market but also has a location in Midtown West and is opening one up this summer near Columbia University.My favorite order* consists of their...
