My sister forwarded me her Amex email she got recently showing this years DIB participants. There are a lot of great places to choose from and even three Greenpoint restaurants are in on the action this year. Two Polish places and Park Luncheonette.

I had brunch at PL last week and it was pretty damn good. They offered up a juice special that was billed as a ‘detox’ but you could add gin and make it a ‘retox’. Brill!

  1. Park Luncheonette is one of (if not) my favorite brunch places in the ‘hood. I don’t get why so many people line up for Enid’s. I’ve been there twice and decided to never go back. I think they are WAY over-rated.
