It’s always packed at Cafe Ghia in Bushwick during brunch. I’ve come here several times and saw the wait, so I just left. But one time I came really super late for brunch. Got to sit at the bar. Ordered the Mofongo (Mashed fried green plantains with bacon, over easy egg and avocado $12). Pretty good.
There’s always walking tours of Bushwick art in the area. Pretty interesting. Bushwick used to be pretty dumpy. Now it’s a hipster street art scene and you see white tourists taking walking tours of the neighborhood. Kinda weird, but I guess it makes sense. There was an SNL skit about the gentrification of Bushwick this past Saturday. I don’t think it’s really like this, but I guess it’s kind of funny. …Okay, I just watched it again. It’s funny.
