Here’s one of those ideas that fall under the heading Why Hasn’t Anyone Done This Before? — a casual spot devoted almost exclusively to serving eggs around-the-clock, from 8 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and till 1 a.m. on weekends. It’s the brainchild of two egg addicts Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis, along with chef Nick Korbee, late of Smith and Mills. The eggs, they promise, will come from contented chickens raised on small farms located within locavore distance of the Nolita shop. And, beginning this weekend, Korbee will whip them into things like egg salad with fried chicken on toast, and poached egg with miso quinoa (pictured). There’s a section of the menu that allows you to customize your egg-and-cheese sandwich, and for ovo-phobes, there’s French toast or Greek yogurt served with the Ambrosial-brand granola that Makoulis’s mom makes in Brooklyn.
