11.14.2017 / The Fullest / Vegetarian

New York’s Lalito oozes cool. It’s the kind of effortless cool that manages to bring in everyone from Lower East Side skaters to Tribeca families. Needless to say, this hip spot on the border of Chinatown, Soho and Tribeca is quickly becoming Lower Manhattan’s favorite Latin eatery. Not only are the interiors chic AF but the food is truly delicious as well. So we couldn’t be more thrilled when they shared their popular brunch recipe with us. Now, we can all get one step closer to the end of avocado toast.
