Northern Spy Food Co., the year-and-a-half old farm-to-table spot in the East Village, has gone through a series of changes since opening its doors to the locavore-obsessed masses. Last year, the restaurant dropped most of its retail market (except for some pickled goods) and doubled its wine selection. Now, Northern Spy introduces a new menu that combines its previous brunch and lunch menus.
"Our weekend brunch is extremely popular," explains co-owner Chris Ronis. "So we've added items from it to our lunch menu and given the people what they want." That means you'll be able to get the restaurant's cultishly popular corned beef hash and new items like peaches and cottage cheese with honey (pictured above) alongside lunch items such as a lamb burger and chicken sandwich. The restaurant now opens daily at 10 a.m.—an hour earlier than before—and serves brunch until 4 p.m., daily.
Meanwhile, Northern Spy kicks off Beer Month this week, which features a different local producer each week on the restaurant's four taps. Through tomorrow, they'll be carrying four IPAs from Brooklyn's Sixpoint Craft Ales before switching over to a series of small-production beers from Westchester's Captain Lawrence Brewing on Friday.
