Brunch is a must on the weekends in New York City. Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens all have noteworthy Saturday and Sunday brunches. Some brunches include an endless supply of alcohol which is great on those days you want to start your party early.
New York City’s Best All You Can Drink Brunches
Calle Ocho. 45 W 81st Street, between Columbus Avenue & Central Park West, Upper West Side. 8 types of sangria. They are strict here these days since moving into The Excelsior Hotel in August 2011. Long gone are the self-serve sangria bar and continuous drinking in the front lounge after the meal, but servers still serve you their 8 delicious flavors of sangria as long as you are eating. Meals here are a steal at around $20 per person including tip as of Dec 2011.
Hop Devil Grill. 129 St. Marks Place at Avenue A, East Village. Beer-unch on Saturdays and Sundays is for the beer lovers. Show college and NFL football games on the tvs during the season. A decent brunch menu includes all you can drink of 24 types craft beers, mimosas, bloody marys, and sangria.
The Sunburnt Cow. 137 Avenue C, East Village-Alphabet City.
The Sunburnt Calf. 226 79th Street, Upper West Side.
The Sunburnt Calf BK. 611 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn.
Bondi Road. 153 Rivington Street, LES.
All of these NYC brunch restaurants offer slightly different food but offer the same Endless Brunch deal. An all you can drink brunch menu featuring one brunch item and endless moomosas, moo marys, Foster’s, screwdrivers, and greyhounds. Go to the ATM beforehand, because these NYC brunch restaurants are cash only.
Don Pedro’s. 1865 2nd Avenue, Upper East Side. A three-course brunch with bottomless sangria. Come here when you need a big meal to start your day with plenty of alcohol to wash it down. The food at Don Pedro’s is excellent and I highly recommend their brunch even if you do not care about the sangria. Well worth the $20 per person price.
