With all the light streaming into the loft this morning, you'd think I'd wake up earlier than 11:30.
Today was all about relaxing. We did a really good job of it. After rolling out of bed, I walked to The Standard with Mr. Monkey for brunch. For the record, Mr. Monkey had been up for hours, but he was vewwy vewwy quiet while I slept. He is the bestest.
I have always loved the look of the 24-hour diner at The Standard in all its sunny bright yellowness.
Mr. Monkey ordered a large fresh watermelon juice ($6). We got the last glass available, which wasn't quite full, so it was on the house.
I got the Spanish frittata with chorizo, onion, tomato, and jack cheese and mixed greens ($14). Loved this. A lot. The onions were especially good -- sweet and caramelized to perfection.
Mr. Monkey chowed on the pesto chicken sandwich with arugula, tomato, and mozzarella ($12). Good sandwich, although it could've been a tad more flavorful. We both added some Tabasco to our respective halves. (Yes, we split everything!) The fries were, as always, hot little sticks of awesomeness.
'Twas a yummy way to start my late-starting day.
