Tapas, Tapas and 20-cent Breakfast


Boqueria II in Soho
The Flatiron favorite gets some much-needed extra capacity with this downtown sister location. We recommend settling in at the chef's bar where you can admire the kitchen at work and take in the new brunch menu, including Revuelto Pinoxco and Huevos y Bistec. (That's steak & eggs, for the uni-lingual.)
171 Spring St (between Thompson and W. Broadway)

This new spot from the fine folks behind El Quinto Pino boasts the same small-scale pleasures as its predecessors, including small pours of wine, mini-beers (called Zuritos), ten seats at the bar and handheld Basque tapas like Txitxiki, a crispy chorizo-hash sandwich. As for pronouncing it...your guess is as good as ours.
240 9th Ave (between 24th and 25th St)

20-Cent Breakfast at Casa Havana
You've probably never stopped by this Chelsea Cuban spot, but we're putting it on your radar just in case: two eggs, bacon and coffee for 20 cents. We recommend tipping at least a quarter.
Available every day, 7-11am
190 8th Ave (between 19th and 20th St)
