It’s easy to walk by Reunion and assume it’s just a coffee shop. In reality, however, it’s an Israeli cafe that serves a bunch of breakfast and lunch stuff until 5pm every day (at which point they close). It’s a great spot for a low-key brunch when you don’t want to deal with a huge wait, and it’s especially nice when you can sit on the patio out front and get some people watching done. You can have something like pancakes, schnitzel, or a plate of eggs with some cucumber salad and a few different dips.

Locanda Vini e Olii
We’d love Locanda Vini e Olii if we lived down the street. But when it comes to traveling this far for dinner, there are probably other restaurants in the area that we’d rather be.

Ultimately, we are sure that Boulud Sud is some kind of Mediterranean culinary stroke of genius, just like the critics say that it is. But this is the kind of restaurant best suited for people who still keep an actual Zagat guide in their house.
