"This deeply flavorful stew of red peppers, tomatoes, garlic and spices is topped with baked with eggs and arrives to your table bubbling hot from the oven. Sop it up with the olive oil-slicked, crusty grilled bread that's served on the side. It will have you feeling so cozy, you’ll wish you didn’t have to go to work after an early weekday brunch. (Skip this place on the weekends; the wait is ridiculous.) Big cups of coffee and the all-day brunch menu rock in every aspect."
