Parish Hall is the serene counterpoint to Williamsburg brunch hotspot Egg. It focuses heavily on local ingredients, reflected in a seasonal and vegetable-dense menu. True to form, there is an enticing array of salads, but also a serious selection of sandwiches to rival it.
The weekend brunch menu brings out a slew of egg-based options, and Parish Hall's take on a classic bacon and egg is particularly tasty. It goes without saying that the highlight of their lamb bacon and egg sandwich ($11) is the bacon, which they cure in house. It's smoky, hearty, and borderline addictive. The scrambled eggs provide a nice counterpoint, albeit a spectacularly messy one. Additional accoutrements of spring onions and mustard are hardly discernable, but perhaps it's the thought that counts.
