Rintintin is a bright brunch spot on Spring Street in Soho that’s pleasant enough for your friends to spend time in, but not too nice for your friends to feel weird about getting a little drunk in. It’s usually crowded, but they take reservations (if you’re a planner) and have seats at the bar while you wait for a table (if you’re not). This place feels a little like a bar and has decent Mediterranean food like baba ganoush or a burger that comes on on pita.
