If you haven’t noticed, brunch is like the new club. Whether you’re looking for unlimited mimosas, good music or a quite spot for a low key date, we’ve got you covered with our list of 10 brunch spots.
Woodland: For some of our readers this is a no brainer and way too popular, but in case you’ve been living under a rock, Woodland is all the rave for music lovers looking for a party vibe and good food. From 12-5pm, the rustic tavern style restaurant has an unlimited mimosa and entree special for $40. A live dj spins all the popular party songs, from soca and reggae to 90s rnb.
J’eateat: Cheap food and cheap unlimited mimosas; how can you go wrong? This cozy spot in park slope is for the free spirits only. Water is served out of a glass bottle and the menu is written on the chalkboard, so a fancy Sunday outfit isn’t necessary. But an empty stomach and dry throat in need of mimosas? Very necessary.
Motherburger: Motherburger is known for their frozen margarita mixes and tangy signature “motherburger sauce,” but on Sunday’s you can get a sweet brunch deal too. For $10.95 feast on buttermilk pancakes and $3 mimosas and margaritas.
PS 450: There’s a strict dress code here of no hoodies, sweatwear or “work boots,” but with its popularity you’ll want to pull out some of your best gear anyway. One of their brunch favorites are the hangover house fries, topped with poached egg, scallion, bacon, chopped tomato, melted cheese and cheese sauce. Hungry yet?
Beauty and Essex: This upscale lounge’s “champagne brunch” on Sundays is perfect for birthday affairs and special events. For $55 you can dine on braised short ribs, sunny side eggs, red velvet cupcakes and more. Enjoy jazz with just a glass (or two ) of the best bubbly Beauty and Essex has to offer.
Sugar Freak: Shrimp po’boy sandwiches, jambalaya and catfish grits are just a few mouthwatering Louisiana dishes at this creole/cajun joint in Astoria.
Revel: It’s like eating in an enchanted garden. Flowered brick walls, trees and red curtains set the ambiance for peace and Sunday tranquility in this American restaurant. You can dine in the forest all year long and enjoy not only unlimited mimosas, but unlimited mojitos too.
Pink Tea Cup: This famous mom and pop soul food restaurant was founded in 1954, and was a comfort food haven for many Motown artists and celebrities. In 2009 Pink Tea Cup closed down its West Village location and reopened in Ft. Greene under new management in 2013. While the location may have changed, the tasty red velvet waffles among other delicacies hasn’t! In fact, late this year WeTV will premiere a six-episode docu-series on the daily operations of the restaurant.
Queens Comfort: Cap’n’crunch toast balls exist-and thrive- right in this local spot in Astoria, Queens. There’s no need to fret over mimosa and drink specials, because it’s BYOB!
Chocolat: Hands down a staple Harlem restaurant lounge. If you enjoy soul food in a lounge environment, live jazz and unlimited mimosas, then this is the place for you.
