Tables of Contents: Egg’s Reading Series

toc082916

Food & Book Lovers! Join us this MONDAY, August 29, as we bring food and fiction to the same table with our new reading series. Our August menu is an end-of-summer return to form after taking our two month summer break, with authors Kaitlyn Greenidge  (We Love You Charlie Freeman) and Belinda McKeon (Tender) reading something delicious from a recent or forthcoming work. We’ll make snacks inspired by each reading, and you get to enjoy it all.

$5 suggested donation, and beer & wine are available on the cheap! Plus we’ve got free mini biscuits for all. See you there!

RSVP on our Facebook page or just show up–it’s always an interesting evening.

Oxalis Dinners

We’re excited to be continuing to host some very special dinners by chef Nico Russell and his team this summer: trial runs for his soon-to-open restaurant, Oxalis, these showcase seasonal cooking at its most refined. Nico and his team, all alums of Restaurant Daniel, are presenting multi-course, prix fixe dinners, including beverages, for $85 a person (the dinners are sold in pairs, so get yourself a date for the evening!)

You can read more about what the dinners are like in this recent Brooklyn Magazine article. Buy tickets in advance here.

Why We’re Sponsoring a Bike Ride

If you know anyone at Egg, chances are you know a passionate runner or cyclist or basketball player or hiker.

Being physically active is part of life in the restaurant business—it’s a job requirement, literally, but restaurant work is also the kind of work that tends to attract people who are up for significant physical challenges. We fielded a 4 person marathon team in this fall’s NYC marathon; we had 3 runners in the Brooklyn Half this spring. One of our long-time servers is now a writer for Runners World; another just took a couple of weeks off to cycle alone from Brooklyn to Quebec and back. (more…)

Change is Brewing: New Coffee Program at Egg!

pouring over changes
We love you, French press, but you’re dripping all over our breakfast… 🙁

For 11 years, we’ve served coffee in exactly one way: the French press. We like the press because it’s simple, it makes good coffee, and it lets everyone who orders have some control over how strong her coffee is. Like it light? Plunge early. Prefer to be shot out of your seat by the strength of your morning brew? Let it steep!

But lately, as you may have noticed, our trusty French presses have changed–and they’re getting us down. They’ve been cracking the minute we pour hot water into them, making them leaky at best (see above!) and useless at worst. (more…)
