The best brunch options in NYC available for delivery
Written by

For all the hate brunch might get—long wait times to be seated, a restaurant that just dials it in with less-than-creative offerings, the hullabaloo of getting everyone in your group to chat to agree on the time and place—oh, how we miss it so. Brunch has become synonymous with New York weekends not so much for the food but for the communal experience of getting together with your friends and downloading the gossip from the week before. And while it’s harder than ever to get your group together, many restaurants in NYC are still serving up their griddled brunch-y classics to give you a taste of your best weekend memories. This weekend, we suggest ordering brunch and video chatting with your friends while you eat. It might just feel like you’re getting closer to the real deal.
