December 12, 2018 0 0

The best brunches in NYC are more than meals – they’re culinary excursions, and even sacred traditions, depending on whom you ask. After all, breakfast isn’t just the most important meal of the day, but also your weekend social calendar. Gathering over mimosas and French toast makes a fine way to commiserate with friends, and – in a town like New York City – can easily turn into an all-day affair. So where can you head for some of the tastiest meals in town? We’ve picked out several options (just a few among many great choices that rank among the best brunches in NYC) that can help you skip the guesswork.

Name Location Description
Colonie 127 Atlantic Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Farm-to-table is Colonie’s forte. Chef Andrew Whitcomb serves up signature dishes like Sticky Date Cake or Roasted Beets with pistachio yogurt using locally-sourced ingredients. Fresh and flavorful doesn’t even begin to cover it.
abcV 38 E 19th St
New York, NY 10003
Vegans and vegetarians will find everything to their liking at this spot in the Flatiron District. Menu offerings include brunch bowls with fresh fruits and cold-pressed juices in addition to a selection of restorative tonics.
Locanda Verde 377 Greenwich St
New York, NY 10013
Most people don’t think of having Italian for breakfast, but Locanda Verde will have you thinking again. Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and Hazelnut- Crusted French Toast a just a few of the sweet breakfast offerings they have that will complement your morning cocktail perfectly.
Cookshop 156 10th Ave
New York, NY 10011
Brunch is best enjoyed outside at this enjoyable spot nestled near the High Line. The venue offers gluten-free options and a lovely selection of cocktails to make your people-watching experience more enjoyable. Strawberry Margarita or Moscow Mojito, anyone?
Maison Premiere 298 Bedford Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11249
This popular oyster bar does brunch right with fresh seafood incorporated into its entrees. Shrimp & Grits or Poached Eggs and Caviar may be calling your name, but you’ll get a real kick from the brunch cocktails on offer here.
Queens Comfort 3618 30th Ave
Astoria, NY 11103
Queens Comfort dishes up breakfast classics with Southern twists in the heart of Astoria. We bet you’ve never had a Cap’n Crunch Crusted Chicken Sandwich before, so come hungry for creative takes on these dishes. Fair warning: It’s a cash only spot.
Dimes 49 Canal St
New York, NY 10002
Dimes will fit in with your health-conscious, minimalist Instagram aesthetic. Fresh and perfectly portioned, its dishes range from acai bowls to tacos to salads. The menu is veggie-heavy, so your vegetarian friends will thank you.
Cosme 35 E 21st St
New York, NY 10010
Cosme has seen the likes of the Obamas and Adele pass through its doors. Snagging a table at this Enrique Olvera spot is a little easier during brunch, however. Come hungry for Mexican- style eats, and treat yourself to Duck Enmoladas or Stuffed Avocados.
Red Rooster 310 Lenox Ave
New York, NY 10027
The venue’s Saturday brunch is tasty for sure, but brunch on Sunday comes with a gospel choir. Enjoy your breakfast comfort food downstairs at Ginny’s Supper Club to hear live music and really get a taste of soul food.

Upland’s menu mixes breakfast essentials like Buttermilk Pancakes with creative offerings like Baccala or Quiche Lorraine. You can also order pizza, sandwiches, and an assortment of pastries for a well-rounded meal. Reservations are encouraged.
