The Newly Reopened Dirt Candy Will Now Serve a Vegetable Lovers Brunch

Amanda Cohen’s Dirt Candy will offer a brand-new brunch menu starting September 12

Beet coffee crumb cake and carrot granola are two of the brunch menu items.

We usually only enjoy vegetables at brunch if they’re in Bloody Mary form, but we’ll make an exception for Dirt Candy.Amanda Cohen’s vegetable-centric Dirt Candy, which just reopened this February in a much larger space in New York’s East Village, will introduce a brunch menu this fall. Starting September 12, chef Cohen will premiere a menu of never-before-seen brunch dishes and cocktails.

Indulge in specialty brunch drinks like a yellow pepper mimosa (prosecco and yellow pepper juice) and the Bloody Carrie (bloody mary with grilled carrot and mezcal). Edibles include fennel walnut sticky buns, beet coffee cake, and pain au chocolate et à l'oignon; zucchini pancakes with squash blossom jam; corn French toast with yellow corn jelly and bourbon corn butter; "Green Huevos No Ham" with chard tortillas with salsa verde, cotija cheese, and tempura poached eggs; and carrot granola with carrot marmalade and labneh.


Brunch will be served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
