The best bottomless brunch in NYC

1

Agave

This popular West Village eatery serves a two-hour bottomless brunch for $33, which will get you an egg entrée and your choice of all-you-can-drink mimosas, wine or frozen margaritas. Although they take reservations, be sure to book at least a week in advance as tables fill up quickly. Tables sitting down after 2pm will have their drinks cut off promptly at 4pm, unfortunately for New Yorkers who like to get their money's worth.

Randolph Brooklyn

Your thirstiest friends will enjoy the $37-per-person bottomless deal at this graffiti-covered, '70s-inspired Brooklyn eatery, which gets you an entrée and 90 minutes of Bloody Marys, mimosas, craft beers and unlimited brunch punches (such as the Texas Porch Sipper) until 7pm. (Mote: the entire table must participate, but that shouldn’t take too much convincing). We recommend the jerk chicken po boy with caramelized onions and "voodoo" chips, or weekend favorites like eggs Florentine or challah French toast.

Hill and Dale

Lovers of vinyl and vintage Americana will feel right at home at this LES brunch destination, which features one of the city's best pulled pork and egg sandwiches, featuring meat smoked for 12 hours and topped with beer-braised onions, Gruyère and grain mustard. An entrée plus house-made Bloody Marys and mimosas will set you back $35, a bargain whether you’re nursing a hangover or just looking to enjoy a leisurely weekend meal.

Cow and Clover

While $25 includes the usual unlimited Bloody Mary and mimosa drink special, the mouthwatering brunch spread at this Williamsburg eatery is reason enough to come here: You can munch on house-made pastries like strawberry-mascarpone muffins alongside Berkshire pork-and-potato hash, or a smoked-duck eggs Benedict on a black-pepper–cheddar biscuit. The light-soaked waterfront dining room makes indulging here a relaxing experience, and anything you try is infused with delicious smokiness thanks to wood-fired ovens.

Ivan Ramen

It’s not exactly orthodox for the neighborhood ramen-ya to offer a 90-minute boozy brunch, but this counter from Ivan Orkin—a Jewish Japanophile from Long Island—has always been anything but traditional. On weekends, pair the chef’s steaming bowls of outré dashi-cheddar breakfast ramen or the more traditional shoyu or shio with free-flowing pours of Japanese-ified cocktails, like a Sake Bloody Mary, a spin-off of the classic with tomato-scented junmai sake, bulldog (tonkatsu) sauce, horseradish and house-brined pickles ($36, includes entrée). Other sake-infused drink options include mimosas and sangria, or draft beers like Sorachi Ace or the Eastern Standard IPA.

Pardon My French

Sip on all the horseradish vodka-infused Bloodys and mimosas you can handle at this globally-influenced French bistro for just $29, a delicious bargain when paired with brunch classics like eggs Benedict with Bayonne ham, spinach or smoked salmon, or sweet favorites like rice pudding topped with fresh fruit and salted caramel. If you manage to snag one of the outdoor tables for getting your buzz on, you might think you’re in Paris–the waiters are handsome and French, giving the whole place an authentic Parisian vibe.

DiWine

Coffee plus one mimosa, bellini or Bloody Mary is included with each brunch entrée—choose from hearty favorites such as banana-bread French toast or the Breakfast Lox pizza—or upgrade to bottomless booze for just $20 more. Even if you’re recovering from late-night shenanigans, the atmosphere has the perfect amount of bustle without being annoying. Sit near the entrance for a front-row seat to the live jazz music on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 3pm.

Miss Lily's 7A Cafe

This downtown Caribbean corner joint playing a reggae-and-dancehall soundtrack offers two hours of unlimited island brunch cocktails like the One Love bellini (champagne, passion-fruit puree) or the  boisterous, soju-based Hotstepper (spicy Bloody Mary, Scotch bonnet pepper). Guzzle both while feasting on West Indian–inspired platters such as breakfast roti with soft-scrambled eggs and jerk pork sausage and Jamaican rancheros blanketing plantains and stew peas with over-easy eggs.

Pig and Khao

Keep the party vibes going with the hip-hop-fueled brunch from Leah Cohen, who dishes out culture-crossing Southeast Asian morning fare soaked up with all-you-can-drink Yuengling Lager and tropical mimosas during brunch (ends at 3:30pm; $15). Choose from the usual orange, or opt for mango, lychee or white peach to offset the gut-sticking Filipino Sizzling Sisig, featuring pork head chopped on a hot skillet with a whole egg, or the khao soi, a Thai chicken-noodle soup simmered with red curry and coconut milk.

Calle Ocho

The Latin-inspired menu at this bright, cheery UWS eatery was made for soaking up any of the eight varieties of sangria offered until 3pm, such as the Punta Cana (made with peach, pineapple and orange), or the Fresas (with raspberry vodka, citrus and strawberries). The Cuban skirt steak with pork fried rice, avocado and fried eggs would be a tasty choice, or you can split the gallitosEndFragmenta spread of Costa Rican soft tacos, scrambled eggs, chorizo and home friesEndFragment with one of your hungriest friends.

Poco Bar

This bottomless-booze brunch spot in the East Village is well known, and for good reason. The atmosphere is fun (and by that we mean it can get a little wild) and the food is good. For $30, patrons get an hour and a half of Bloody Marys, mimosas or sangria. Menu favorites include thick-cut French toast with fresh berries, migas, and chocolate chip pancakes. Be prepared for a long wait during peak hours, and bring cash!

Essex

While not exactly bottomless ($26 gets you an entrée plus three Bloody Marys, mimosas or screwdrivers), Essex is the place to go if you want to get tipsy with groups of eight or more (though the price goes up to $40 per person if you go that route). Either way, you’ll devour plates like chocolate-banana pancakes or your choice of Canadian bacon, kale or salmon eggs Benedict.

Three of Cups

Short wait times, excellent food and service, and the best bottomless brunch deal around make this one of the top spots in the city. Brunch ($16.95) comes with coffee or tea and two complimentary mimosas or Bloody Marys, but for an extra $8 you can stretch your boozy morning/afternoon into a two-hour drink-a-thon. Bottomless-brunch enthusiasts will be flocking to this East Village gem.

Tosca Cafe

Some purists swear that all-you-can-eat brunch is the only way to do the midmorning meal; their case is made at this always-busy Italian restaurant in the Bronx. The spread ($31.95 per person, children under 12 $12.95) features an omelette station, Italian bread French toast and a variety of pastas, plus bottomless pours of classic brunch drinks (Bellinis, champagne, mimosas, Bloody Marys).

I'm here for the weekend (a few times a year) and Time Out is a good go-to. Steven P, your feedback - extremely helpful. I'm off to one of the places you mentioned because let's face it, boozy should be free flowing or cheap. Thank you : )

P.S. For REAL boozy brunches, some options include Agave, PS450, the Yotel brunch... These are a bit up in the price range (but compared to the $10-per-drink places populating this article, you'll be well ahead by your 3rd drink, and a boozy brunch never ends after just 1-2 drinks!). No, not gonna share my favorite places here. But a moment of silence for Bonelick Park, always a staple for an entertaining group brunch. :(

OK, the article is a total joke. Nothing "boozy" about these brunches, which should have cheap drinks if not AYCD. Aita--no drink special. Alder--$14 clam chowder and $16 toast and beans? And drinks are $12+ each? Nope, sorry. Allswell--small food menu, drinks are $11+ each. Fail. Buttermilk Channel? Drinks are $9-$11 each. And that's just the A's and B's! Some of these may be "staff favorite" brunch spots and have good food, but they are NOT "boozy" as the article suggests.  You don't have boozy brunches where drinks are $10 or more apiece. A good boozy brunch will have drinks for < $5 or AYCD with meal for < $25. That's the rule.
