Poco is by all means a boozy brunch staple in East Village. The drinks are strong and the food is good! They try to set rules to make sure people don't get to tipsy and stay forever, but you will notice everyone leaves with a good buzz. I highly suggest the Lobster Mac (it is to die for), but i would suggest as an appetizer shared among friends (esp if you are all foodies). I always go with "The Cure" or Steak, Egg n' Cheese sandwich. If you had a long fun night before brunch, "The Cure" definitely does what the names suggest, cure your hangover.
Lastly, it is cash only and always crowded! If you have over 3 people in your party you will most likely need a reservation.
This is my go-to brunch spot in Manhattan. The atmosphere is fun, the food is great and there is outdoor seating when the weather is nice. For $30, patrons get an hour and a half of Bloody Marys, mimosas or sangria. Some of my favorite dishes are the Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese, Poco Benedict and Truffled Mushroom Omelet. Be prepared for a long wait during peak hours. And bring cash!
