The Best Brunch Spots For Any Summer Mood

Looking for the best brunch spots in the city that never sleeps until it sleeps in and wakes up hangry? Search no further. Our curated list of brunch NYC restaurants in will have you clicking “reserve” for every weekend this month.

01

When you're uptown and feeling Caribbean vibes

101 Edgecombe Ave, New York, NY 10030

01

Known for its brunch menu, The Edge of Harlem sits adjacent to St. Nicholas Park and has an eclectic assortment of culinary options reflecting its Caribbean vibes. In our opinion, you can’t go wrong with splitting several small plates and delicious sides (see: sweet plantains). You won’t walk away hungry. For drinks, go halfsies on a carafe of rum punch or try the ginger-infused margarita.

02

When you some good bar food the hair of the dog

The Flying Cock is a fun, lively, yet cozy bar nestled in the heart of NYC’s Murray Hill. Its biggest draw is the bottomless brunch where for an extra $23 you can get unlimited Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, or raspberry Bellinis for 90 minutes. They're also open for lunch and dinner daily, with late night DJ’s playing throughout the weekend and happy hour specials all week. Try the sweet potato poutine or Reuben spring rolls with a cocktail or beer.

03

When you're craving comfort food to start your day

2315 Broadway, New York, NY 10024

Maison Pickle is the little comfort food sibling of Jacob's Pickles. Treat yourself to pull apart bread, hot honey chicken with French toast, or a challah croque madame. Order some fresh-squeezed orange juice and pop open a bottle of bubbly for straight-from-the-source mimosas.

04

When you want to take a (food) trip to the Mediterranean

184 Dekalb Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205

04

Miss Ada is a spin on the word "seuda," which means coming together and supporting strangers and loved ones by sharing food and thoughts. Known for its homey atmosphere and welcoming staff, this Mediterranean restaurant offers weekend brunch (well, afternoon brunch!) and don’t miss out on the sweet potato hummus, whipped ricotta, and brick chicken. There’s also a great selection of wine, beer, and cocktails to cheers to.

05

When Patti Smith is calling your name

253 Bushwick Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206

Pink Metal is a bar that's all about fierce feminine energy. Stop by for brunch or dinner and one of their signature craft cocktails with kinky names like the Berlin Mistress (shōchū, gin, yuzu liqueur, matcha, and lemon) and the Pink Straddler (vodka, campari, grapefruit, lemon, and prosecco). Even their mocktails are full of flavor like the Soft Metal with fresh grapefruit cordial, lavender-peach kombucha, and lemon.

06

When you're having Sunday funday in Brooklyn

348 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249

Don’t forget your appetite! Sunday Brooklyn serves decadent fare and an amazing boozy brunch. With their long list of delicious American comfort food and dozens of creative original cocktails, don’t overlook the Sunday Pancakes (a hazelnut maple praline tour de force), the fried chicken sandwich, the Honeybear on Holiday, and the non-alcoholic Strawberry Buck.

07

When that rustic, lumberjack in you is dying to come out

231 Hudson St, New York, NY 10013

07

Flip the norm and use brunch as a way to get away from the NYC streets … and have an easier walk home afterwards. Arlo SoHo is a boutique hotel that offers various experiences, including a rooftop lounge and city cabins in its Courtyard. Stay for the day, or overnight in their cozy, rustic cabins, and indulge on their meal package offerings, which of course, includes brunch topped off with milk and cookies. You get your pick of items + two cocktails. Think avocado toast, buttermilk pancakes, quinoa salad, and mac & cheese washed down with some sparkling wine, Champagne, or a house cocktail. We recommend the Vanilla Passionfruit Sour.

08

When you're feeling farm-to-mesa

284 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

When you're feeling farm-to-mesa

Head over to farm-to-table Oaxacan-inspired Claro for a fresh take on Mexican food. While entrees such as the shrimp aguachile and the lobster tostada are their centerpieces, Claro also features an extensive mezcal list with an array of cocktails highlighting the distinctive, smokey flavor.

09

When you're jonesing for British this side of the pond

401 E 76th St, New York, NY 10021

401 E 76th St, New York, NY 10021

The definition of a British gastropub, Jones Wood Foundry offers a charming, pleasantly English experience. Sit in one of the comfy bar stools or grab a table in the intimate back garden. Order a couple of pints and get your inner Duke and Duchess of Sussex on. Pro tip: Scotch eggs are a deliciously savory alternative to dessert.

10

When you need to impress your foodie friends

659 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238

10

With its own backyard garden, Olmsted is as farm-to-table as you can get in NYC. The James Beard finalist has a veggie-heavy menu but is packed with other ingredient-driven dishes too. Despite owner and chef Greg Baxtrom’s fine dining background, including Per Se, this neighborhood restaurant is low key with its chef’s kitchen counter seating, living wall, and woodsy indoor-outdoor feel. It's also extremely affordable considering its vibe and hands in the kitchen.
