The best spots for brunch in Staten Island

Alor Café


Deep in the sleepy Staten Island enclave of Grant City, this usually pulsating lounge forgoes the DJ during brunch time for flatscreens playing cartoons. Grab a booth at an arched window and dig into the avocado breakfast burrito, sweet-corn omelette or sunny-side-egg-topped chicken schnitzel. Tear the kids away from the restaurant’s stash of Wikki Stix by offering them a PB&J-and-banana sandwich.

Beso


Though Beso is billed as a Spanish tapas bar, the menu at this sexy little spot goes far beyond Iberia (through Cuba, Mexico and Puerto Rico, for starters), making up for a lack of focus with big flavors and conviviality. The three-course brunch is just $25 per person. With options like sautéed mussels, clams and calamari over penne in a spicy tomato sauce, and baked scrambled eggs with spinach, bacon and cheese, the price is a steal. Choose the soup of the day or a salad and go straight for a fruity-sweet glass of tequila-spiked sangria. And even if you’re stuffed, make room for dessert, like fluffy sopapillas or tres leches cake.

I just read a comment by Chuck D on this post that made me want to cross over the bridge into Staten Island. I won't lie to you, I'm a New Yorker who's been to S.I. only twice in my lifetime, and both times it was for the wake of a dear friend. I am 43 now and a lot more adventurous. Maybe it's time to venture out there for a fun time rather than for a sad time. Thank you Chuck D for making my mouth water with your description of the T.G.I.S. Eggs Benedict. I will try to make it out there soon.

I love the new brunch menu at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. Their T.G.I.S. Eggs Benedict is absolutely to die for...it is a poached Hudson Valley farm egg, creamy spinach, a toasted English muffin, with hollandaise choice of: ham/crabcake/steak. It is as delicious as it sounds! Plus, their new brunch cocktail menu is filled with tasty drinks too. I like the Million Dollar Sour (Rittenhouse Rye sour with orange bitters and topped with an IPA beer). Yum!
