Had brunch here on Saturday.

For those that might not know this is part of the Maggie Brown, Pequena fort greene mini-empire, and is located in the old A Table space. They've been open about two weeks now.

Meditterean inspired brunch menu, with options ranging from a Turkish breakfast (eggs sauteed with tomatoes and coriander, eggplant salad and pita bread)to a steak sandwich with feta cheese, the latter which my boyfriend ordered. I myself had the baked eggs with potatoes, peppers, onions and merguez. Was ok, but not outstanding.Lacked any really distinguishing flavor. My boyfiend enjoyed his sandwhich though he did comment that he found it a bit greasy.

The space is lovely though, and they had delicious fresh sqeezed OJ and good strong coffee.

I will certainly go back for dinner to see the full range of their menu.
