Upper East Side

Let’s start with the Upper East Side.

For those seeking a bit of luxury, try the prix-fixe brunch at Tavern on the Green— it’s worth the splurge.

Midtown East

Swinging a bit further south, you’ve got Midtown East. This bustling area of town has some real gems when it comes to brunch. One of our favorites is SushiSamba, located on Park Avenue. Their unlimited small plates brunch is an absolute must — and you won’t be disappointed by the playful cocktails, either.

West Village

This cozy corner of NYC is home to some truly iconic places, like Balthazar and Buvette. But if you’re looking for something off the beaten path, venture over to The Smith. Their bottomless mimosas and classic American brunch fare make this spot a must-try.
