The area east of Soho has changed so dramatically over the past few years. There are a variety of different stores and restaurants that are absolutely worth checking out. I had lunch yesterday at Bread which is on the corner of Elizabeth and Sullivan. This could be my new lunch destination.
I walked in around noon. The place has a groovy edgy vibe. There are high cocktail tables, a bar, banquettes and other tables around the back. Small and quaint. They serve lunch and dinner. The salads we had were excellent.
I had the special salad. Chunks of sicilian tuna, shavings of fennel, lettuce, cherry tomatoes and avacado with the house special dressing. Served in a large bowl. My friend had the feta salad with huge chunks of fresh feta over watercress. Really good. We also split a small bowl of Italian pickles which actually only had 2 pickles but we got mushrooms and artichokes marinated in olive oil and vinegars. No biggie. It was delicious.
But the time I left, the place was packed. It was great. I'll definitely go back for dinner. Really liked Bread. My guess is everything on that menu is pretty tasty.
