My friend Carolyn and I recently signed the lease for an apartment together next year. It's going to be my very first apartment, so naturally I feel very grown up and to celebrate she took me to one of her new favorite brunch places in West Village, Joseph Leonard. Carolyn clearly knows me pretty well, because I absolutely loved this place!
We started out with the usual round of fruit, coffee and orange juice.
Carolyn had the omelette with mushrooms, goat cheese and baby lettuce.
I had the avocado toast with scrambled eggs and I was extremely impressed by the avocado toast, which was made just the way I usually make mine at home.
I also had to get a side of the country fried bacon, which was almost too intense, but amazing nevertheless!
Afterwards we went for a stroll in our new neighborhood and the light was so gorgeous that I simply had to share a few pictures with you:
New York, it's really hard not to love you at times like these.
