Double Wide NYC: Foodie Fridays
If you live in NYC, you know the difficulties in trying to find a brunch place without a wait on a Saturday or Sunday. I was hanging out with Derrick on a Sunday morning, around 11:30AM, absolutely starving, and being quoted a 2.5 hour wait at Maharlika (!!!), and with both of our stomachs grumbling in pain, we turned to our trusty Yelp app to try to find another brunch place.
And that’s how we stumbled upon Double Wide, which coincidentally is just down the street from Derrick’s apartment.
We both got really excited when we found out that it was a Southern joint as. . .well, NYC doesn’t really have too many Southern restaurants and we were both starving. The exterior is a bit confusing, as the entrance is through a bar but we were able to find our way in. The place itself is super cozy, with very friendly waiters. It seemed that, because of the location, there weren’t that many people around which was great for us because we were able to really chat.

The food at Double Wide NYC did take quite a while to come out but it was definitely worth the wait.
The breading on Derrick’s fried chicken was delicious, although the chicken was a little overcooked. The cinnamon butter that came with it was amazing.
My egg sandwich was simple, yet perfectly executed. The scrambled eggs were buttery, the bacon perfectly fatty and the avocado a perfect topper.
I was actually very surprised with how much I enjoyed my sandwich.
If you’re in the Alphabet City area, I recommend checking out the brunch menu at Double Wide NYC. The prices were affordable, at around $8-12 for an entree. Double Wide NYC is the perfect place if you’re looking for a low key brunch without all the mayhem of an hour wait or super loud house music or waiters spilling drinks on your coat!
