I was trekking around the Lower East Side last Saturday when I stumbled across this little place called Dudley's. I had never seen nor heard of it before but the menu looked enticing so I walked inside. I loved everything about the space immediately. There was a cozy curved bar, big windows for people watching and they were rocking some incredibly great music. I felt so relaxed I decided to make it a true brunch experience and ordered a mimosa.
They had some great sounding Egg Sandwiches but I was intrigued by the Messy Grits.
A perfectly poached egg sat atop a mixture of corn and grits. It was tasty but I wish the grits had a little more flavor and texture. It was a little on the thin side for grits. The table next to me ordered a fantastic looking egg sandwich and the next table had a slice of Banoffee Chocolate Pie that looked utterly amazing. So with those two snapshots in mind....I will be back.
