Sometimes in Grad Hospital, it feels like everyone you pass is either a) a grad student or b) works at a hospital. In a sea of scrubs and backpacks, Honey’s couldn’t be more at home. Their latkes and signature “Honey Cristo,” made with challah French toast and ham, are two of the things on the menu, but the huevos rancheros is also a favorite. This place is cash only and doesn’t take reservations, so expect to wait on the weekends. But they are BYOB, so if you’re worried, you can always bring an extra bottle of something.
