Where I’m Eating: Party & Brunch

[ 0 ] June 13, 2013 |

photo 5There are party brunches and then there are Chef Roble Everyday People brunches.  The cross between party brunch, good comfort food and fashions of the Lower East Side meet …. On the DL rooftop.  What a site for sore eyes?!  The room was not only filled with a circus for my eyes with fashion statements spewing at every turn of my neck but the spicy shrimp and creamy grits were worth the trip into my least favorite New York neighborhood on a blistering hot day.
