Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
In New York, brunch is more than a meal—for some, it’s a religion. Each Sunday morning (or late afternoon!), rain or shine, believers swarm their places of worship: those lively temples offering Benedicts, breakfast and Bloody Marys as holy sacraments. But how do you bypass all the mediocre noise and discover what’s truly brunch gospel? We’re here to help. We take the guesswork out of the weekend meal and award the very best dishes and drinks this city has to offer, from syrup-drenched pancakes to, of course, that picture-perfect avocado toast. Happy feasting.
