Brunch: The Little Owl

The Little Owl on Bedford Street in the West Village is the restaurant on the ground floor of the building where Monica’s apartment was on the show Friends.  It’s across the street from 17 Grove Street, built in 1822 and one of the few wooden houses left in NYC.  Despite its proximity to historical and pop cultural landmarks, The Little Owl is a destination on its own.  Very popular for brunch, The Little Owl usually has long lines, but the day I visited, there was no wait.

The brunch menu had a lot of enticing dishes, but I’m glad I got the perfectly poached eggs atop pork polenta cakes.

My friend opted for a more classic version of poached eggs with greens.
