Breakfast food at brownstones include omelets and frittatas. A big hit, named "As the Romans do," features eggs baked with diced potatoes, prosciutto, fresh basil and shaved Parmesan. Lunchtime, the panino-and-soup combo might feature a bright and briny Manhattan clam chowder, along with half a grill-pressed sandwich. A fine choice is the flatbread 9th Street panino - grill-pressed ciabatta enclosing juicy, lemon-herb-grilled chicken breast, Fontina cheese and sauteed broccoli rabe. There also are burgers and salads. (Mar. 15, 2011)
