Lifestyle: Brunch At Macondo, Manhattan

Sharing with friends is fun, especially sharing a nice breakfast. Some days ago my girlfriend and I shared Sunday brunch with 2 friends at Macondo on East Houston Street in Manhattan´s trendy Lower East Side (157 E. Houston Street, New York City to celebrate my birthday.

We choose this place because we like its style and the atmosphere there. It`s front is open to the lively East Houston Street. Therefore a lot of light falls in and you can watch the buzzing street.
This creates a fresh ambiance like a party scene in a modern Hollywood movie. Especially when the place gets crowed and the life inside mingles with the life outside the eatery gives off an inspiring vibe.

They must have spent a lot for the architect who created the bar, the walls and the rest of the furnishings. I admired the clever composition of things which lets the place look a bit like an setup in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) but still keeps it cozy.  

The food there is ok. They offer predominately latino dishes, for breakfast for example "Huevos Rancheros" (2 baked eggs with tortilla, tomato sauce, black beans, chorizo and manchego cheese) or "Buenos Aires" (grilled skirt steak, arugula, jalapenos onions, tetilla & la pearl cheese).

Buen Provecho!
