HB Eats: Brunch at Morandi

Last weekend I tried a new brunch spot in the West Village, Morandi.  The dining area of Morandi had a rustic, homey feel and was fairly large.  It was a good thing I made a reservation though because the restaurant was packed, and space was definitely at a premium!  I ordered uova in camicia (poached eggs) over artichokes, squash, and mushrooms.  The eggs were cooked perfectly, but the dish definitely could have used more seasoning, or any seasoning really.   After sampling my companions' meals, I found that the garganelli alla bolognese (egg pasta with meat sauce) was delicious, and the focaccia “occhio di bue” was also tasty.  The surprising highlight of the meal however were the donuts that we got as an appetizer. They were light and fluffy with just the right amount of sugar.  We even got a batch to go!  I would definitely dine again at Morandi, perhaps in the evening, so I can try more of the pasta!
