We have done the LES self-guided tour in previous years, but, now I have to avoid gluten and corn, and hubbie has to avoid milk products. Based upon previous postings on stuff to take home etc, what do you think of the following for a Sunday morning breakfast/brunch (hubbie is thinking this would be more fun than a formal sit down brunch) and shopping to take home on the train?
Babycakes--248 Broome St, New York (if good--plan to really load up for home)
Pickle Guys--49 Essex St (half sours for hubbie)
Essex Street Market--120 Essex St (not sure whether worthwhile on a sunday)
Economy Candy--108 Rivington St (pistachios, fun candy etc.)
Katz’s--205 E Houston St (pastrami for hubbie)
Russ and Daughters--179 E Houston St (bagels and lox for hubbie)
Di Palo--200 Grand St (shopping to take home)
Rice to Riches--37 Spring St (rice pudding for me)
Any other suggestions? Is there somewhere I can get an eggy dish to go along with the sweets from babycakes?
