Sharing is caring!

Okay, I know what you’re wondering. “Where is the best boozy brunch in NYC?”

Am I right?

Because no matter where you are in the world, it’s drink o’clock somewhere! And the only thing better than day drinking, is day drinking at brunch.

But seriously:

Who doesn’t love a meal where it is somehow, magically, socially acceptable to day drink your face off?

Glad we agree on the important things in life.

Well, the good news is that there are no shortage of boozy brunches in NYC. 

And that makes sense since New Yorkers are stressed AF all week long and in need of a place to chillax and enjoy the devastatingly short weekend.


Brunch in New York City is no joke. It’s a way of life where you embrace your best Sex and the City self while you go out with your girlfriends and get tipsy at some posh, NYC foodie hotspot.

But the holy grail of all brunches? Definitely the boozy brunch.

I mean:

Unlimited mimosas, bloody Marys and champagne cocktails? Seriously,what’s not to love?

That’s why:

You need to drag yourself out of bed this weekend and beeline it to one of these amazing NYC boozy brunch spots.

Trust me:

Whether you’re out for your birthday, nursing last night’s hangover, or just spending time with your favorite gal pals, there’ s a boozy brunch spot on here for you.


Sit back, relax, grab a tub of your fave ice cream, and marvel at the number of lame puns that I can squeeze into one blog post as we check out 15 of the best boozy brunches in NYC.

1. Queens Comfort (Queens, NY)

Kids, #oreo stuffed French toast with Oreo crumble, maple syrup, powdered sugar and whipped cream ($14) #queenscomfort #queensgetthemoney #brunch #frenchtoast

A post shared by 36-18 30th Ave Astoria Queens (@queenscomfort) on

Queens Comfort is notorious for selling decadently rich, deep-fried, comfort food that is perfect for anyone who’s been out, partying like a rockstar the night before.

Good thing calories don’t count on any day that ends in Y.

Am I right?

You could also just order their classic, Eggs Benedict since I mean really, who doesn’t love Eggs Benedict?

What, Eggs Bennie not doing it for ya?

Well, not to worry because they all also serve eleven other types of egg dishes, as well as freshly made doughnuts, Cap n Crunch fried Chicken (it shouldn’t work but totally does), and basically anything that you can deep fry and smother in sauce. 


They even fry their mac and cheese and serve it with a spicy sauce that perfectly cuts the richness of the dish.

Did I mention…

Yeah, this a bring your own booze type place.

Definitely a bit weird for a boozy brunch spot but the food here is so good that you’ll be willing to BYOB and schlepp over to Queens for the foodie goodness.

Trust me:

This really is a foodie mecca of sorts since people love the fun, friendly atmosphere and the unique variety of food mashups that will all leave you drooling like a St. Bernard.

The only problem?

They don’t take reservations, which is pretty standard for most boozy brunch spots in NYC.


Be prepared for a long wait (AKA about an hour) since this place is UBER popular.


The earlier you can get here the better. So, you may just have to drag yourself out of bed at like 8:00 am on a Saturday which, is always pretty painful, especially for a non-morning person like me.


They do provide entertainment while you wait which is kind of sort of adorable.


They also don’t take groups of eight or more people so this may not be the best spot for that birthday bash you were planning. They also only take cash so definitely hit up the ATM before you arrive.

Address: 4009 30th Ave. Queens, NY 11103,

Hours: Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am – 3 pm.

2. Farm to Burger (Midtown, Manhattan)

Your Times Square brunch spot! Brunch with us every Sat + Sun from 7AM – 4PM⠀⠀ ?310 West 40th Street inside the @alizhoteltimessquare⠀

A post shared by FARM TO BURGER (@farmtoburgerny) on

This classy, Times Square joint serves up all of your favorite brunch classics, including foodie staples like Eggs Benedict, waffles, bagels, omelets, and more.


You can even order one of their signature burgers if you wanr a solid, protein-rich start to the weekend. 

Just chase it down with one of their delicious Bloody Mary’s and you’ll be good to go.

But the best Part of this boozy brunch in NYC?

Why, the Tipsy Farmer option of course. It’s definitely one of the top reasons to go to this restaurant for brunch. 

Simply pick any of their amazing, brunch entree options and pair it with ninety minutes of pure, bottomless, Mimosa magic.


Leave the funnel at home since Farm to Burger is a classy joint, located inside the new, Aliz Hotel.

Added bonus?

They take reservations. So, book ahead and avoid a long wait in line. 

Other than that:

Just come thirsty, order the Tipsy Farmer for $30 (which is 110% worth it since most of the mains are between $16-$18 anyway), and leave in a Mimosa-induced haze.

Be sure to dress up though since this place is one of the swankier brunch spots on this list.

Address: 310 W 40th St, Manhattan

Hours: Brunch is served between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

3. North Fork (West Village, Manhattan)

introducing our heirloom tomato salad on the new summer brunch menu. smoked cherry tomatoes, spiced ricotta, basil vinaigrette dressing! #northforknyc #northforkrestaurant #westvillage

A post shared by Northforknyc (@northforknyc) on

Believe it or not:

This rustic restaurant, located on the corner of Christopher and Bedford street, actually got an award, from Time Out Magazine, for the best bottomless brunch in NYC.

And I mean:

If that’s not reason enough to check this place out then I don’t know what is. 


The focus here is on delicious, insanely large portions of American comfort food (inspired by the North Fork region of Long Island) that is served with a super sleek, modern twist.

That’s why:

You can expect to find anything on the menu, from artisanal burgers to the devastatingly delicious, Crème Brûlée French Toast.

But you know what I really love?

Why, the bottomless Sangrias, Mimosas, and Bellinis that can be added to any entree for just $35 per person.

Talk about a WOW factor. Plus,

North Fork sources all of their fresh ingredients from local farms and wineries that are scattered throughout the Hudson Valley and New Jersey.


Feel free to get your drank on and feel totally guilt-free about it.


It does get majorly busy for brunch., so be prepared.

And yes, the bottomless drinks option is capped at 75 minutes.


Be sure to drink quickly and get your money’s worth, while you’re here (insert googly-eyed emoji here).


It’s one of the pricier NYC brunch spots on this list, but considering the quality of food and the aesthetic beauty of your surroundings, it’s a total winner.

Address: 122 Christopher Street. West Village. NYC

Hours: Brunch is served between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

4. One Stop Beer Shop (Williamsburg, Brooklyn)

@sixpoint will be here tonight buying pints and supplying a blank canvas for you to project all of your feelings onto. #comedrink #comepaint #bobross

A post shared by One Stop Beer Shop (@onestopbeershop) on

A Williamsburg favorite, this place is perfect for anyone who prefers beer to cocktails or who wants something a little more exciting than your typical, brunch time Mimosa.


They have this awesome, 2 for 1 special on Redneck Mimosas, which are made from white beer, orange juice, and orange liquor (talk about genius).

(They heavens open up and sing in delight)

They also have this awesome, $18, unlimited beer brunch which is perfect for anyone who prefers beer to cocktails.

And the food?

Yeah, it’s awesome if you’re craving something other than ‘traditional’ brunch fare.

Typical menu items here include things like pizza, grilled cheese, pulled pork sandwiches, soft pretzels (they are steller and come with an assortment of tasty dipping sauces), as well as a few more brunchy foods like waffles and eggs.

Added bonus?

The atmosphere here is SUPER down to earth and way more comfortable than a lot of other brunch places in NYC.


Stop by if you want a relaxing brunch with your guy friends or if you just want to eat somewhere where you can nurse your hellish hangover in peace.

But the best part?

This place is WAY cheaper than many of the other restaurants on this list since you can get a main, in addition to two for one drinks, for just $19.

Talk about crazy awesome.

Address: 134 Kingsland Ave (at Beadel St), Brooklyn, NY 11222

Hours: Brunch is served from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

5. District Tap House (Midtown West)

District Tap House is the very definition of what a boozy brunch should be. 

Is it fancy? No. Will there be 20 different TV screens showing minute by minute plays from sporting events around the world? You betcha.


With over 50 craft beers on tap, do you really care? I didn’t think so. And yes, it is your JOB to try at least one beer while you’re here.


The real highlight of any visit to this Manhattan gastropub is their Tipsy Brunch.

For $30 a person:

Not only can you enjoy unlimited Bloody Marys, Mimosas, or beers, but you also get to choose from a variety of different dishes that included anything from stuffed waffles (which are to die for I might add) to healthy (ish) salads, like the roasted beet salad (Sundry Apricots, Garrotxa, Walnuts, Balsamic Vinegarette). 

But, the foodie fantasy doesn’t stop there.

They also serve a uniquely wonderful Lemon Shrimp Sandwich, delicious short rib hash, and offer a unique take on the ever classic, Eggs Benedict.


The menu at this gastropub is just delicious all around, minus a rogue deviled egg that was not so amazing.

So all in all:

This is a laid back, dimly lit, cozy pub where you can sit and recover from the night before while inhaling copious amounts of alcohol (no judgment here).


The Tipsy Brunch option is a bit pricey at $30 a person, but the quality of the food more than makes up for the meal’s price tag (PS: This is NYC so $30 for brunch isn’t that bad).

Address: 246 West 38th Street, Manhattan

6. Lido’s (Harlem)

A post shared by Lido (@lidoharlem) on

Perfectly positioned on the corner of Harlem’s restaurant row:

This warm, sleek, and inviting Italian restaurant has a quiet charm about it that transports you away from the chaos of the city.


If you had an Italian grandma, then this place will make you feel like you’re going to her house for the most epic of Sunday dinners, or brunches as the case may be.

Known for it’s AMAZING, $16, unlimited Mimosa brunch (they give you an indulgent 2 hours to drink as much as humanly possible) which sadly, does not include an entree, the real highlight of any trip to Lido’s, besides the copious amounts of alcohol, is the fresh, delicious, home-cooked Italian food.

No joke:

The serious deliciousness and soul-warming capability of this food would make your aforementioned grandma weep with joy.

I mean:

It’s like the chefs here somehow managed to create all the dishes that your grandma just never thought to make.


On the menu here, you’ll find a variety of inventive takes on brunch classics like Smoked Salmon Benedict, Open-faced Florentine Panini, and Baked French Toast.

Although not very unique:

My personal fave happens to be the warm and fluffy, blueberry pancakes, which are generously smothered in a healthy serving of fresh, Vermont maple syrup.


If you’re looking for a comfy place that offers a fantastic, Italian twist on the classic, boozy brunch experience, then you can’t go wrong with a table at Lidos (and you’re in luck because they DO take reservations).

Address: 2168 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, Harlem

Hours: Brunch is served on weekends from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm

7. Horchata (Greenwich Village)

View this post on Instagram

“Brunch is not a meal. Brunch is a competition. And I’m winning.” #horchatanyc #chilaquiles #brunch #unemployment #bottomlessbrunch

A post shared by Michael Dewar (@dewdeezy) on

I’ll be the first one to admit that when it comes to Mexican food, NYC is kind of a culinary wasteland.


Horchata is the total exception to that rule with their vibrant, festive, Mexican style decor and awesome, “Chill Out” Over Our Boozy Brunch special for $39 per person.

Including your choice of one brunch entree, as well as guacamole, tortilla chips, and 2-hours of unlimited sangria, mimosas, bloodies, or Mexican beer on tap, this place is the stuff that North of the border dreams are made of (Get it? Since Mexico is south of the border? Right, awkwardly moving on).


This deal is a bit pricier than some of the other bottomless brunches on this list, but you get more food for your money.

So yes, it’s worth it.

Especially since you get to order kick-ass entrees like chorizo Quesadillas (the huevos rancheros are also SUPER DUPER good).


The portions/sides are Grand Canyon level enormous so you can definitely get another meal out of this brunch if you decide to take any leftovers home with you.


If you’re not feeling the whole boozy brunch deal, you can always just order an entree of their extensive menu and split a pitcher between four people for $30 per person (If you do this, order the Horchata since it’s authentic and delicious. Plus, they even have a Horchata Espresso that might just be the pick-me-up that you need).


If a fun, festive, Mexican-style boozy brunch is what you’re craving, then this is the place to be.

Address: 470 Sixth Avenue (between 11th and 12th Street)

Hours: Brunch is served from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

8. Havana Cafe (in the Boogie Down Bronx)

View this post on Instagram

Shrimp Risotto #bronxhavanacafe #tonightsspecial #goodeats #foodforfoodies

A post shared by Bronxhavanacafe (@bronxhavanacafe) on

Havana Cafe is one of the many reasons why I absolutely love the Bronx.

I mean;

Where else in NYC can you get a brunch entree, with unlimited sangria and mimosas, for just $10 (possibly more, depending on the entree you choose)?

Yeah, no where, that’s where.

And the food? Yeah, it’s amazing.

But, I’m not the only one who thinks so since this is a Michelin Guide recommended restaurant.

Something that seems like a pretty big deal.

And with unique, Cuban inspired menu items like Torejas (french toast with banana sauce and whipped cream0, Ranchero (scrambled eggs, crispy tortilla, chicken rope Vieja, and black bean puree), and Cazuela (breakfast casserole with chorizo, home fries, mozzarella, pickle peppers, and 2 fried eggs), it’s no wonder that patrons, and critics alike, show this place massive amounts of love.


Because the price of your brunch entree actually includes unlimited drinks, this place gets hella crowded.


Be sure to book a table in advance so that you don’t get stuck waiting in line for hours on end (Okay, the wait isn’t that long, but I’m a New Yorker and I never like waiting). 


If you’re on a budget and still want to get in on all the boozy brunch fun, then this is the restaurant for you.

Address: 3151 East Tremont Ave

Hours: On Sundays from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm

9. Sotto 13 (West Village)

View this post on Instagram

Can we go ? to Sunday & do this brunch all over again? @infatuation_nyc #EEEEEATS ?: @bestfoodny

A post shared by The Infatuation (@infatuation) on

This much-talked-about, sophisticated, Italian-inspired brunch spot is the perfect place for groups and anyone who wants to drink something a bit different.

Start brunch off right with their immortal, Bomboloni (Nutella stuffed donut holes with vanilla sea salt).


They are so good that even if I did know the staggering calorie count, I’d still eat them.

And that’s just the start of this brunch experience.

Next, the table can choose between a variety of different, but equally fantastic, menu items like Focaccia French Toast, Eggs Benedict, Wild Mushroom and Egg Scramble, Shroom wood-fired pizza (mushroom duxelles, mozzarella, and ricotta truffle oil), etc.

So yeah:

This is basically like the jackpot of all boozy brunch spots if you’re brunching en masse since Sotto offers a group brunch special, for $37 per person, that includes a pizza, two brunch plates, and one side, per table.

Not to worry if you’re in a large group though.

Because the dishes here are all portioned out based on the size of your group, so I pinkie promise that you’ll get enough food to eat.

They just like to serve things family-style to help create a warm, welcoming, and friendly atmosphere.

But wait, it gets better!

Your brunch experience also includes one bottle/carafe, per two people, of Sparkling Wine, Mimosa, Bellini, Champagne Mule, Margarita (seasonal), Sangria (seasonal), Fuzzy Navel, and Bloody Mary.

Added bonus?

If you arrive for happy hour (11:00 am to 12:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday), then you can enjoy unlimited Mimosas or Bloody Marys for an hour. 

So same deal, but even more booze! HOORAY!

But, it gets even cooler.

The geniuses at Sotto 13 also have this wicked awesome, make your own prosecco bar, for $29 per tray when you order the Social Brunch, where they bring all kinds of syrups and berries to your table so that you can mix and match and create your own unique, prosecco creations.

The only problem?

As awesome as the Social Brunch is, it still has one BIG downfall. 

I mean:

If you’ve got picky eaters or diet restrictions within the group, then agreeing on the same food can sometimes be tricky, to say the least (although they do offer gluten-free pizza crusts). 

It also gets super busy for the aforementioned happy hour of awesome so book ahead.

The final verdict?

The gorgeous surroundings, delicious menu, and $37 brunch deal all make this place a hella awesome brunch spot, especially if you can get here for happy hour.


Agreeing on a set of entrees for the entire table can be difficult at best, so definitely only dine here with your most cooperative friends!

Address: 140 W 13th Street

Hours: Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm.

10. Miss Lily’s (Soho and East Village)

We’ve got something extra special on our brunch menu, just for Father’s Day! Celebrate Dad while enjoying our Jerk Steak and Eggs (slow cooked jerk bbq brisket, sunny side eggs and watercress salad) from 11AM – 5PM at both NYC locations. #CelebrateDad

A post shared by Miss Lily’s (@misslilys) on

A lively atmosphere, combined with a unique take on traditional, Jamaican cuisine has made this restaurant a top pick for the best boozy brunch in NYC (and that’s saying something).

I mean:

You can pair Breakfast Rotis with unlimited Bloody Marys or Bellinis for about $30 per person.

Talk about a winning combination!

Miss Lily’s also serves some of the best coconut pancakes in the entire city, so what’s not to love?


I’m not a big deal, so if I’ve heard about these pancakes, then you know they must be pretty serious.


In terms of their boozy brunch deal, while you do get one hour of unlimited booze for $20 (choice of Bellini, Hotstepper, or Rum Punch), you also must purchase one brunch entree from their limited prix fixe menu.


This menu only includes Jamaican Breakfast (Ackee, saltfish, Jamaican greens), Pork Steak and Eggs, Breakfast Roti (soft scrambled eggs, cheese, and jerk pork sausage), Coconut Pancakes (my fave), soft scrambled eggs (smoked salmon and onion), Callado and Gruyere Omelette, and Jamaican Rancheros (eggs over easy, plantains, and stew peas with scotch bonnet pepper).


If you’re a picky eater, then this may not be the brunch spot for you (you can always try visiting on another day to enjoy their extensive regular menu).


That teeny-tiny negative doesn’t matter since dining here kind of feels like traveling to Jamaica, a place where you can escape the stresses of reality for at least a solid few hours. 


The quality of the drinks and food here are out of this world and totally authentic. 

Added bonus?

They don’t pressure you to hurry up and finish your meal so that they can seat other people, unlike many other boozy brunch spots in NYC.

So, my verdict?

Yeah, this place is a total keeper.

Address: 132 West Houston Street (SOHO) and 109 Avenue A (East Village)

Hours: Brunch is served between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

***This deal is only available at the East Village location.***

11. Agave (Greenwich Village and Kips Bay)

Tacos were meant to be shared ??

A post shared by Agave NYC (@agavenyc) on

This lively, high-quality Mexican inspired brunch spot provides diners with a trendy atmosphere, but minus any and all pretense.

Which is perfect for a very un-fancy girl like me.

And while their pre-fixe, boozy brunch menu (for $39 you get your choice of an entree, with 2 hours of bottomless Margaritas, wine, and mimosas) contains mostly egg-based dishes, like the Lobster Benedict, Three Egg Omelette, Sunrise Fiesta Burrito, etc., it’s fine since they take the whole concept of a boozy brunch super seriously by ensuring that you are well looked after in the drinks department.


They do have some non-egg related entrees like silver dollar blueberry pancakes, roasted mushroom quesadillas, and cinnamon brioche French toast.

But, what do I love the most?

Umm, their fantastic bottomless brunch deal which gives you two glorious hours of boozy brunch goodness.

They’re also super quick on refills so you’ll barely have time to realize that your drink is finished before, TADA, it’s magically refilled.

And while both Agave restaurants are fantastic:

Everyone knows it. Therefore, be sure to book ahead (yes, this is one of those rare, unicorn-like restaurants in NYC that take brunch reservations), since this Mexican hotspot is poppin’.


They also take last minute bookings via phone. So, feel free to call them the same day if you want to avoid a long wait for a table.

Address: 488 3rd avenue, New York, NY (Kips Bay) and 488 3rd avenue (Greenwich Village)

Hours: Brunch is served 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

A post shared by Harry’s (@harrys_nyc) on

This stylish, upscale, cellar-like joint (but in a non-creepy, Hannibal Lector way) definitely brings a bit of fun and liveliness to the financial district every weekend, with its epic boozy brunch of wonder.

Apart from the stunning AF interior:

Harry’s Cafe and Steak offers guests a fantastic bottomless menu that starts at just $25 per person. 

Not only do you get to enjoy unlimited Mimosas, Sangria, and Bloody Marys, but you also get to choose a starter, first course, and entree from their fixed brunch menu, with biscotti for dessert (It’s $18 extra for a two-hour bottomless brunch).

And with traditional brunch options like Belgium Waffles, Eggs Benedict, Steak and Eggs, and Avocado Toast with a Poached Egg, the choice can be a bit of a tricky one since all the food here is THAT good!

Before you visit though:

Definitely, reserve a table as far in advance as possible since this restaurant is uber-popular, and for good reason.

I mean:

The exquisite decor and bottomless brunch alone make this the perfect spot for any special occasion or for anyone looking to brunch like one of the ladies from Sex and the City.

So yeah:

Definitely don’t roll up here, rockin’ that ratty pair of college sweatpants that you pretend are okay to wear to the supermarket. 

Sure, I do it too. But just not here.

Address: 1 Hanover Square

Hours: Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm (the bottomless brunch option starts at 12:00 pm)

13. Hotel Chantelle

What success looks like ? @aleylovesfood

A post shared by Hotel Chantelle (@hotelchantelle) on

If you’re looking for a fun and funky brunch spot, with live jazz music and incredibly cheap cocktails, then say hello to Hotel Chantelle, you’re new best friend.

Sure, this restaurant isn’t actually a hotel:

But whatever. They still do an amazing, bottomless brunch that is one of the best boozy brunch options listed here.

And while a nightclub isn’t exactly an obvious choice for brunch, the chef here absolutely knows what he or she is doing.


The food isn’t the only thing that’s amazing about this place.

As you ascend the dimly lit stairs to the roof, you’ll be delighted by the dining room’s wrought-iron light fixtures, vintage black and white floor tiling, and all-glass rooftop; a feature that floods the restaurant with beautiful amounts of natural light (perfect for any photo ops in their street adorned entranceway).

In terms of brunch though:

You have several, uber-boozy options to choose from.

My personal fave is the Bottomless Brunch (they also offer a social brunch option for groups, where entrees are served family-style), which is $35 per person and includes an entree from their pre-fixe menu, as well as sixty-minutes of unlimited Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, and Bellinis.


Their menu includes super delicious entrees like Avocado Toast, Eggs Benedict, a Quinoa Bowl, Spanish Baked Eggs, and, my personal fave, the stuffed french toast.


This awe-inspiring stuffed brioche, maple-infused. mascarpone and ricotta french toast is encrusted with frosted flakes and served with, DUH, maple syrup.

Definitely one of the best french toast dishes that I’ve ever had in my life.


If you’re looking for something a bit more budget-friendly, then try ordering from their full brunch menu, and pairing that with one of their heavily discounted, in house cocktails, like the Punch Drunk (Brunch specialty cocktails cost $7 while Mimosas, bellinis, and Bloody Marys all cost $4).

***If you REALLY want to save money, try their $0.92 Strawberry Lime Rickey and Easy Passage cocktails. Both cost just $0.92 until 5:00 pm on the weekends. And NO, that is NOT a typo.***


Although the rooftop garden dining room can get a bit noisy, making it difficult to chat with your brunch buddies, brunch here is a contender for the best boozy brunch in NYC.

I mean:

The food is great, the lively atmosphere is great, the music is great, and DUH, the cheap booze is definitely unlike anything else in NYC.


Hotel Chantelle is a definite must if you’re looking to up your brunch game while in NYC.

Address: 92 Ludlow Street

Hours: Brunch is served serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays between 11:30 am and 5:00 pm

14. The Kettle Black (Brooklyn and Staten Island)

View this post on Instagram

PSA: Bottomless Brunch from 11am-3pm at both Kettle Black locations…

A post shared by The Kettle Black (@kettleblackbar) on

I know:

The Kettle Black is a glorified sports bar that serves up wings, nachos, and inebriated men of all ages.

And yes:

This probably doesn’t sound like the coolest brunch place on the planet, but hear me out.

Not only are the brunch entrees here delicious, but, for an extra $10, you can add on 60-minutes of unlimited (my fave word in this post) Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and domestic draft beers.

***PSST! The 60-minute, bottomless brunch option can’t be ordered after 2:00 pm.***

Sounds like a total steal to me!

Heck, this deal even includes unlimited iced coffees and soft drinks for any non-drinkers in your crew.

Yup, we’re all-inclusive here at Girl with the Passport.


The food is epic. I mean, they serve homestyle chocolate chip, strawberry, and blueberry FLAPJACKS, with bacon, sausage, or ham (I’ve also heard stellar things about their steak and eggs).

Seriously amazing. I mean, who sells flapjacks in NYC anymore?

That’s why:

At $24-$26 per bottomless boozy brunch (say that twelve times fast), this is one of the most deliciously cost-effective options on this list

Address: 8622 3rd Avenue in Bayridge Brooklyn and 415 Forest Avenue, Staten Island

Hours: Brunch is served from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays

A post shared by THE FLYING COCK NYC (@theflyingcocknyc) on


I’m approximately twelve-years-old and laugh every time I hear the name of this restaurant.

Phew, glad I got that out of the way.

Anyway, The Flying Cock is known for serving up deliciously, unique brunch entrees that shouldn’t work, but totally do.

I mean:

The Cinna Bec (A cinnamon ‘Dough’ doughnut served with crispy bacon, a sunny side egg, melted American cheese, and chipotle mayo) sounds like pure, gastronomic madness, but is actually, 110%, finger-lickin’ good.


If you’re not up for something quite that daring, then you can always try one of their classic brunch dishes like Eggs Benedict, Spinach Goat Cheese Omelet, Shakshuka (Baked eggs in homemade tomato sauce, with mozzarella, pecorino, and sourdough toast), and Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes.


For just $21, you can add 90-minutes of bottomless Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Bellinis to any entree.

See, boozy dreams really do come true!

So, while yes, this restaurant does tend to cater to a rowdier crowd, it’s all good since brunch is delicious and not insanely expensive (at least by NYC standards), at +$32 per person for an entree with bottomless drinks.


Definitely make reservations in advance so that you don’t spend your entire Sunday waiting in line.

Address: 497 3rd Ave, New York, NY

Hours: Brunch is served from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays

Alright guys, although rolling with my homies (AKA You) has been fun, I think it’s time for me to skedaddle since I’ve more than thoroughly answered the not-so-age-old question, “Where is the best boozy brunch in NYC?”.

I know, per usual, this article was WAY too long, but cut me some slack (Please?).

I mean, it’s hard to choose some of the best brunches in NYC since there is so much to eat in this city and so little time.

That’s why, with an NYC brunch list like this, sacrifices need to be made since some eateries MUST be voted off the island, a la Survivor.

But heck, you’re probably way smarter than me and have an infinitely cooler list of your own.

So tell me, what do you think of my picks for Sunday brunch in NYC? Are you thinking wow, or totally not now? Well, even if you found this guide helpful for just a millisecond, definitely pin this now and read it again later! Because, yes, all the cool kids really are doing it.
