nectar diner, an appetizing brunch

So my boyfriend's cousin was in town and she and her best friend went to the Met.

While they waited on a very long, rainy Sunday line we went to Nectar for brunch.

I love this little diner and its offerings even though I never managed to go there when I went to high school in the area.

For brunch I had two appetizers:

 fava skordalia with pita

and grilled octopus with roasted red pepper and fennel orzo.

pretty good for diner fare, eh?

Speaking of the Met and the Line that deserves its own capitalization: this is what it looked like that afternoon:

The line for the Alexander McQueen exhibit was 1.5 hours by the time we finished brunch. Luckily, cousin and bff had already made it in with only a 20 minute wait.
