Folks looking to ease into the day by luxuriating over the New York Times with a pot of coffee and waves of unobtrusive service should steer clear of this auto-parts shop turned restaurant. From the moment you part the curtains, it’s a jolt to the senses, with DayGlo pillows and a clattering open kitchen. Then there’s the food—a grab bag of dishes ranging from steel-cut oatmeal to chilaquiles to a plate of pork belly and eggs. The unifying force? Diana Davila-Boldin’s gift for lightening what might have been heavy and investing familiar tastes with enough detail to reward closer inspection. Sunday 11:30 to 2:30.
