If you’re looking for an easy Italian option in the East Village at any time of the day, San Marzano has your back. But it’s most useful for a boozy brunch. You can get bottomless mimosas for $10, and the egg dishes and paninis max out at $9, and the vibe is surprisingly low-key. Plus, the patio is a nice place to people watch on Second Avenue.
