Breakfast Ramen at Talde ($12)
Hello, bacon, eggs, and noodles in a broth made from buttered toast soaked in house-made pork stock! Oh, and Arigato chef Talde-san.
Bagel with Smoked Whitefish Salad at Marlow & Sons ($7)
Bagel for brunch? Normally we'd say fuggeddaboutit, but have no schmear, this house-made whitefish salad is the stuff deli dreams are made of.

Duck Hash at Egg ($13.50)
File this under simple Frenchy deliciousness: duck confit, crisp potatoes, a smattering of scallions and two perfectly poached eggs.
"Steak & Egg" Korean-Style at The Good Fork($17)
A soulful, modern, soy-marinated take on the breakfast classic that's worth the hike to Red Hook.
Porchetta Sandwich at Maialino ($16)
Maintain what's left of your weekend dignity by eating this meaty monstrosity — ciabatta, slow-roasted pork, and a fried egg — with a knife and fork.
Donut French Toast at Thistle Hill Tavern ($12)
Dale Talde makes the list twice for this are-you-serious ridiculousness. The pan-fried donuts are served with orange marmalade and chopped hazelnuts.
Green Shakshuka at Jack's Wife Freda ($10)
Lighter, brighter take on the Middle Eastern baked-egg dish, with green bell peppers and tomatillos. Mops up nicely with a slice of challah toast.
Brandada de Bacalao at Tertulia ($13)
Silky whipped salt cod. Beautifully baked eggs. Sweet, smoky roasted red peppers. Consider this chef Seamus Mullen's dreamy little crock of Catalan-inspired luxury.
Zoe's Malawah at Cafe Petisco ($11)
Yemenite pancakes made from crisp phyllo dough are served with harissa-spiked tomato sauce. Put an egg on 'em? Yep.
Cinnamon Roll at River Styx ($8)
Baked in an individual bowl, each roll is crispy on top, doughy and pull-apart-y on the bottom, and drenched in caramel sauce. Every table should get at least one. Every table in the world.
