Brix Smith-Start: The Rick Owens Collection

To me Brix Smith-Start is a real hero for reinventing herself: In the 80s she was a member of the Fall (one of my all time favorite acts) but recently she has become a fashion diva of sorts having opened up a shop in London. You can tell from watching this video that she has a real passion for what she's doing — and also she still looks pretty fab!

Sex Madness and Great Typography

Taco Chulo for Brunch

Taco Chulo for Brunch

For my Memorial Day brunch I was craving a breakfast burrito in a hurry, so I was in a bit of a fix as I found out that both Taco Bite and Buffalo Cantina were sadly closed. But lucky for me I hiked up a few blocks to Taco Chulo and it made up for my wandering around Havemeyer.

While I wasn't able to jot down the name of the above dish (it was the first item on their menu and started with the letter "M") I was quite blown away: It featured eggs with tortilla strips, cheese, jalapeños and crema (which was like a light sour cream). On the side they had amazing seasoned home fries, fresh black beans and a refreshing radish salad. I hadn't noticed this item on the menu before, but I know I'm going to try it again (and again).

What I like about Taco Chulo is that they're very vegetarian friendly, in fact I always enjoy it there because there are more than a few items to pick from on the menu. It's also great that they're able to combine a nice looking establishment with a sense of being relaxed, which is perfect for brunch.

Update: The name of the dish is Migas! Yummy...
