Happy Birthday to Mom!

We had a nice morning sleeping in after our late night of driving, car repairing and visiting with my brother, Erick, and his wife, Erin.  Once awake, we called to wish our mom a happy birthday, then we got in gear to drive to the city for Sunday brunch.

Originally we planned to eat at Bondi Road on Rivington, but with a 45 minute wait we left Bondi for Poco then decided to eat next door at Cafe Cortadito. The menu options sounded tasty and many appeared to be gluten-free, so we ordered plantain omelettes with shredded beef, Spanish chorizo and ham and started off with blood orange mimosas.

We had a great time catching up with my brother and his wife, and even made friends with the three girls at the table next to us. Talking religion, politics and everything in between (as well as the fact that we suspect the drinks were spiked with something other than champagne) made for an exciting brunch. But after returning from the city, we took it easy enjoying a delicious meal of spicy mushroom veggie burgers, quinoa and mixed greens prepared by my brother. Here’s to having an amateur chef in the family!
