All mothers say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it is true. But combining breakfast and lunch to make one magical and delicious meal that not only satisfies the soul but also gives you twice the variety of food and mid-morning booze! And you might just find the same mother chatting away on her fourth glass of mimosa, there. Haha.
Brunch holds a standard in the New York City culture. If you haven’t had brunch in town, you haven’t had the quintessential New Yorker experience. Best experienced midweek, if you’ve either spent a night in Bushwick or partied hard at one of the city’s speakeasies, you’d love nothing more than to brunch the next day.
Here’s a list of the city’s best brunch spots:
35 E 21st St, New York, NY 10010, USA
Brunch is good, brunch with Mexican food? even better! Although, Cosme is very difficult to get in because of celebrity regulars like Jennifer Lawrence and Adele making everyone want to dine where they’ve dined at, the brunch service is up for grabs! Just sit back and enjoy culinary wonders like their Bloody María and seafood stuffed avocados.
380 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003, USA
Andrew Carmellini’s Lafayette is everything you need this weekend with the girls to feel like the foursome from Sex and the City. With posh clientele like Gwyneth Paltrow and plush booths like in the movies, this popular brunch bistro offers the softest scrambled eggs, truffle oils and beef tartare with Tabasco mayo. Yum!
820 Washington St, New York, NY 10014, USA
Major Food Group’s creation, Santina brings you amazing food as well as amazing ambiance. This little Italian-vibed restaurant takes you to the coast with its delicious coconut iced-coffees and shrimp frittatas. Brunch here is a fusion of their massive breakfast and lunch menus with staples like bacon, eggs and cheese.
