Your Community is Back!

Written by

Crossing the threshold of the shiny, renovated Community Food and Juice, Bwog was in good company – at least a dozen other enthusiasts arrived at 8am sharp this morning to witness the reawakening of a culinary giant. As the fresh morning sun fell through the high windows and we prepared to spend $20 a piece on breakfast, it dawned upon us all – today, the recession ends.


Morningside will be glad to know that Community is looking so spick-and-span that it recalls the booming Clinton days of yore. Now relieved of the rarely used juice bar (replaced by additional seating) and making use of a revamped kitchen, our dear old Community seems almost flawless.

Bill, the jolly Chef de Cuisine, tells Bwog that “everyone is very happy” with the renovations, despite the delays. We have been missing Brioche French Toast and other delectables for such a long an unpredictable span of time, he says, mostly due to long waits for building permits, Fire Dept. clearance in the wake of the Great Fire, and other bureaucratic densities. But now the brunch we love is back, and nearby CC students were heard cramming Plato for a midterm over Blueberry Pancakes that they said “approached the form.”

Community will be open from 8am to 4pm today, tomorrow and Friday, with regular brunch and dinner hours (one hour closing in between) resuming Saturday. More pictures after the jump.

  1. FIRST  

    ...and community is still overpriced. don't feel like paying $15+ for a meal, sry guyz.

  2. SECOND!  

    I think "overpriced" is the wrong term. Quality ingredients are expensive and the cost reflects that. Normal people can't afford to eat "good" food these days. Don't tell the food police.

    • hmm  

      does quality mean organic? if so, why pay money for that sham. here's a hint, everything is organic because WE ARE ALL MADE OF CARBON.

    • ...  

      disagree. there's a lot of money in morningside heights and they know it, so they gouge. just like all the other vendors here.

      you can get fancy foofy haha organic whathaveyous in other parts of the city without blowing $25 on lunch.

        Gouge? That's a ridiculous statement. You think that if Community were anywhere else in the city their prices would be lower? Give me a break. It's arguably the best restaurant in the area, and no pricier than other top spots nearby (Max Soha, Pisticci). I hate the misplaced, self-congratulatory frugality I see in comments on bwog. Sure I could go somewhere else and save a little money, but I'd much rather enjoy a great meal with better ingredients and pay more.

        Don't complain about the cost if you don't care about what you eat.

        • ummm...  

          what is misplaced about frugality? Some people would rather save money to spend on other things while you'd rather spend that money on what you value. And btw... I'm so happy you have such fine taste and good sense. I would congratulate you, but I think you did that already.

  3. yessss  

    now all the hipsters can stop stealing my seats at the other restaurants around here
