First Look at Permanent Brunch, Now Frying Artisanal Bacon

Weve already given you the lowdown on Permanent Brunch, but here at long last is a look into the room. Zagats opening notice adds some more color: The soundtrack consist of eighties tunes such as Take On Me and Everybody Have Fun Tonight (actually, the restaurants website is currently playing Jenny Owen Youngss genius cover of Hot in Herre), and theres a high-tech waiting system: After patrons type their info into a kiosk, the seating order is displayed on an HD chalkboard. If theres a significant wait, the system will text your cell phone when a table opens up. Totally beats the free-for-all at IHOP on a Sunday morning. Have a look inside.
