Pulino`s is a stylish cozy Bar & Pizzeria. The big windows allow a view on the intersection of Houston Street and the Bowery, one of the coolest streets in southeast Manhattan, and they let in a lot of light on a bright day.
If you don´t want to watch the scenery, you can find a lot to read there, not just the Sunday edition of the New York Times, there is also a nice variety of magazines, including "The Economist". If you are not interested in reading, the walls of the cool structured place display a library of wine bottles. But on lazy Sunday mornings it´s a bit too early for that. It´s brunch time.
On my last visit I choose their "American Breakfast" and got 2 scrambled eggs with sausage plus potatoes. My girlfriend decided for her sweet tooth and ordered the "Buttermilk Pancake". It was skillet-baked with blueberries & ricotta. YUM.
A very pleasant way to start the day in an exciting city.
