Eggstravaganza Cart Looking for a Lunchtime Spot
How upset were we to discover the Eggs Travaganza cart back in July (thanks to Serious Eats: New York), only to find out that they closed before lunchtime? After all, there ain’t no shame in eating egg sandwiches or pancakes and bacon for lunch- right? Yesterday, I stopped by just before Noon hoping to snag an early lunch- and find out if they had heard our cry for longer hours.
They were already closing up by 11:45am because of the heat, but the owners (the nicest brother and sister you’ll ever meet in your life) confirmed that they would love to stay open past noon if it weren’t for the cart that comes to park in that same spot for lunch. In fact, according to another ML commenter the lunchtime cart (our old friend Rafiqi’s) used to force them to leave by 8am, but it seems as if they’ve come to some sort of agreement that allows them to stay there until just before Noon. Thankfully, Eggs Travaganza is still committed to serving Midtown Lunchers. The brother said they are currently looking for another spot in Midtown, either to move to permanently, or to use as a post breakfast spot. There’s even talk of a second cart…
I think I speak for everyone when I say, “yes please.” In the meantime, you can hit up the cart for an early lunch on the NE corner of 52nd & Park. (Although, I’d recommend getting there by 11:30. They were closing up by the time I got there yesterday at 11:45am.)
