I went to brunch last Sunday with my husband and daughter. We went to a new Italian restaurant in the West Village of Manhattan, NY called, “Rosemary’s.” It’s a “hot spot,” right now in NYC and rightfully so. It has a great energy and the food is next level. They have a roof top garden and make everything in house. You can’t get any fresher than that! Rosemary’s was a perfect spot for brunch that morning.

I’m not much of a breakfast person. Although, I will admit that IHOP pancakes are one of my guilty pleasures. When we sat down, I scanned the menu and saw eggs in purgatory, which is simply eggs poached in tomato sauce. When I was a kid, my mother would occasionally make this for my father. I use to think it was so gross!! I couldn’t wrap my head around eating eggs in tomato sauce!! Now, that I’m SOMEWHAT older, I have eaten poached eggs on just about everything, salad, asparagus, steak, pizza, pasta and even a hamburger.

When the server sat the dish in front of me, I could smell the seductive aroma of garlic and tomatoes from the sauce. Looking up from the plate, were these two perfectly round yellow yolks that seemed to be winking at me. I picked up a piece of crusty Italian bread and scooped up as much as I could. It was pure pleasure! I enjoyed it so much, that I decided to make it at home. Diva’s version was just as good as Rosemary’s, or if I may say so myself….BETTER. This may be my new favorite breakfast food. Good-by IHOP!
Enjoy!
