Oh for the love of eggs!

Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis have created an egg-centric (lol – get it?) destination in Nolita which pays homage to the magic of eggs.

The Egg Shop is simply dressed and can squeeze in a couple dozen people but expect a wait at peak times.

All the ingredients used at the Egg Shop are locally sourced and organic. Chef Nick Korbee formerly of Smith & Mills offers a menu that allows you to pick from creative sandwiches, to “cruisers” where the dish is served in a bowl. He also has a custom “egg & cheese” section where you can make your own sandwiches.

Nothing about the menu at the Egg Shop is run of the mill. Sandwiches range from Egg shop B.E.C which is made with a broke yolk, shelburne cheddar, black forest bacon, tomato jam, fresh pickled jalapeño, panini roll whilst a “Cruiser” might entail digging into a Spandex which is made with poached egg, miso quinoa, farm greens, avocado, pickled carrot 

I like that the portions at the Egg Shop are conscious. Each dish is just about the right amount of food and not a decadent, oversized plate that is hard to get through. Everything at the Egg Shop is thoughtful, fresh and really tasty. They have a knockout staff who are super friendly.

They also have beer, wine, and cocktails. The Egg Shop is open pretty much from 8:00 AM – Midnight. Thanks to the Egg Shop – breakfast is now an anytime meal.
