When you need a break from Manhattan, just cross the Brooklyn Bridge and check out some of the best Brooklyn has to offer. We decided to go for Sunday brunch to Egg in Williamsburg. We met up with Becca and Saleem's friends Bryan and Claire for a yummy breakfast complete with lots of eggs!This is what I would recommend you order off their menu when you go:
Biscuits & Gravy . . . $8
Homemade buttermilk biscuits in sawmill gravy made with pork sausage or pan-seared mushrooms
Grafton Cheddar Omelet with broiled tomatoes . . . $9
3-egg omelet served with broiled tomatoes and hashbrowns
Eggs Rothko . . . $8.50
Easy-cooked egg in a slice of Amy's brioche and topped with Grafton cheddar. Served with broiled tomatoes and a side of meat or seasonal vegetables
Country Ham Biscuit . . . $8
Country ham from Col. Bill Newsom's Hams in Princeton, KentuckyServed on a biscuit with homemade fig jam, Grafton cheddar, and a side of grits
French Toast . . . $8
2 slices of Amy's brioche with Vermont maple syrup
Homemade pork sausage (or seasonal vegetables) . . . $3
Bacon . . . $3
Candied bacon . . . $3.50
High Hope Farms scrapple . . . $3
Col. Bill Newsom's country ham . . . $3.50
We then walked around Williamsburg and checked out a bunch of their cool boutiques. At this point, we were going to suggest doing a Brooklyn Pizza Tour, but since we were still stuffed from brunch, we opted to take pictures by the Brooklyn Bridge instead.
It was so cold, that we headed to Jacques Torres Chocolate to warm ourselves up with some hot cocoa.

We went back into the city and walked around the High Line Park in the Meatpacking District.The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan's streets. Now, it's been redone as a public park with beautiful wildflowers. Since we were in this part of the city, for dinner that night we went to Scarpetta. What's better than a hearty pasta dinner on a Sunday night? This restaurant is beautiful and the food is really good. I would say it's a nice date place or a great restaurant to go to with friends. Their most popular dish is their Spaghetti with tomato and basil.

What a great day both in Brooklyn and the city!
