Grano Trattoria: Brunch in the West Village, NYC

Grano Trattoria is a small, warm, extremely cozy trattoria that serves delicious food that always wants you to go back there for more.  The cooking of Owner and Chef Maurizio Crescenzo, always feels as though you were eating in someone’s home.  The pizza from the wood burning oven is among the best pizzas in NYC.  After several visits to Grano Trattoria over almost 5 years – mostly for dinner, and a couple of times for brunch, I am very impressed with not just the consistent quality of the food but also with the friendly service.  Grano Trattoria happily accommodates groups and minor changes to dishes (e.g., omission of bacon, frittatas onlywith egg-white) for dietary preferences / restrictions.  This is a post about (a not vegetarian) brunch at Grano Trattoria.

We got the “ouva alla Napoletana” and the frittata Italiana.  Both dishes are perfect comfort food for cold winter days and lazy weekend brunches / lunches.

The “ouva alla Napoletana” had poached eggs in tomato sauce served on toasted bread and some delicious bacon.  The tomato sauce was refreshingly tangy and not too sweet.

The frittata Italiana was made with salami, mushrooms, tomatoes, and stracchino cheese and was served with delicious diced potatoes.  The current menu indicates different ingredients for the frittata Italiana (zucchini, mozarella, and speck).

There are many restaurants in the West Village to have brunch in, but at Grano Trattoria, you get delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere without the wait.  It ought to be more crowded!!
