A Beautiful Day in the (Market District) Neighborhood

It's cooler today and the humidity is low. We had quite a rain overnight and awoke to a glorious morning.

Andrew decided he wanted this--

So, we headed to Fulton Street--the wholesale market district--where, Monday through Saturday, restauranteurs, independent grocers, florists and others line up to procure the freshest of everything. On Sunday, it is quiet.

We parked less than a block away from one of our favorite restaurants, The Publican.

The Publican specializes in all things swine and they do it very well.

This porcine portrait was directly in front of me but I was not intimidated!!

I waived our waitress right over and ordered The Publican's version of eggs benedict.

My new assistant, Oliver, was trying to be helpful and caused some of the photos to be out of order. I can't figure out how to right them and neither can he. Nevertheless, it was a delicious brunch.


  1. Yum, I want the food in the first picture! Funny that Oliver was trying to help, Kitty Boss tries to type...sometimes I have to manually shut down the 'puter afterward...ya gotta love 'em!

  2. Yum, your eggs look great! My foodie son has described that market to me- he loves to cook and appreciates good food. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Ooooh, it looks so yummy! I am glad to know that I am not the only one who takes pictures of menus. My kids think I am crazy sometimes. Sounds like you had a fantastic Sunday morning. Carla

  4. certainly know how to live up your having a very ample and satisfying breakfast.

    What do you mean about your photos not being right? LOL

    Have a great week ahead,

  5. I love restaraunt posts, and this is one of the best I've ever seen! This is because you covered every facet of the experience. I can see the wonderful lights, which this shot makes look artistic, the menu, your food plate, the wall decor, everything!!! I was there with you, so it's only fair I pay the tip at least. You can send me the bill!

  6. Yum---that does look like a great place to have brunch.... Love all of the pictures of that area... Wish we had a place like that around here... The joys of living in a small town.... ha


  7. Oh, that looks soooo delicious! I love that Oliver was trying to help with the posting. LOL!

  8. Looks like you had a tasty morning.
    Yum! Yum!

  9. I have heard great things about the Publican...gosh you are making me wish I lived in NYC. And isn't it amazing what rain can do. We had some hot weeks in Colorado, but after a series of storms we are nice and cool!

  10. Looks good; I love your post! Sounds like a perfect Sunday.

  11. Oh boy, I want what's in the first picture - YUMMY. Thanks for the roadtrip Bonnie!


  12. the food looks scrumptious, but I really, really like the shot of the ceiling lights. I even like it cocked sideways. please me

  13. It sounds like a lovely outing. An absolutely perfect way to spend a Sunday morning. I hope today treats you as well :-). Blessings...Mary

  14. I think I will have both!--and yes, I can do it!!! Hope you find someone to Ramona and Beezus. I have just started tutoring at a refugee center. I love the kids and I get to teach without the hassle of having a job!

  15. Oh, that looks good! What a great looking restaurant too and I just love me some good ole pork! :)
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. everything swine, how great! I love places that keep it simple, great pics and love the painting!!


  17. I'm glad you have nicer weather and less humidity. Sounds like a wonderful, bright and sunny outing.
