Breaking a Few Shells in Search of a Good Egg

Aside from eggs being a symbol of new life and spring, they’re also delicious and nutritious. Whether they’re scrambled, fried, poached, served in a quiche or prepared any number of other ways, we’ll have seconds.

Scrambled, over easy, deviled, poached, fried, pickled, huevos rancheros, and sunny side up, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, in an omelet, frittata or a quiche … we love them no matter how they’re prepared. Read on to discover five favorite brunch or anytime egg dishes from around the city:
