Are you even in New York City if your weekend itinerary doesn’t include brunch? The perfect blend of breakfast and lunch, almost always paired with endless mimosas, is every city girl’s dream. Bottomless is sacred in Manhattan, so if you’re 21 make sure to check out some of these great weekend deals. Get ready because this is your guide to the best brunch spots in Manhattan!
As much as I would love to gatekeep my favorite brunch location, I think everyone needs to know about Carroll Place in Greenwich Village. If you go here make sure to order the arancini because it’s to die for. With a group of eight or more, you get a family-style deal, 3 appetizers, three entrees, and dessert. $28 for ninety minutes of bottomless with entree included is an unbeatable deal. The vibe is unmatched both indoor and outdoor, but make sure you call ahead because it can get completely booked on weekends.
This is one of the most iconic locations for brunch in Murray Hill, alongside its sister restaurant “The Horny Ram.” If the innuendo-based names don’t already make you want to go, their adorable outdoor dining and innovative dishes might. The cinnamon roll pancakes and breakfast waffle sandwich can’t be found anywhere else! If you’re all about the bottomless, you can add it to your meal for an extra $25.
You may have seen this East Village Italian-style brunch on TikTok, after their contest to win a free meal with friends. It’s not surprising considering they charge only $25 for bottomless with the purchase of any entree. They have go-to breakfast options, such as eggs and pancakes, but their specialties are the Italian classics. The Margherita pizza and penne alla vodka is perfect for those Sunday scaries! Check them out on TikTok and Instagram as they’re always doing giveaways.
If you’re more of a Mexican food girl, this is the perfect spot. Endless tacos, chicken, fish, shrimp, and pork, are $24. Bottomless drinks, both classic and frozen margaritas, are $22. You can also combine both for the ultimate ninety-minute, $40 brunch experience. This Midtown East location channels Mexican street food into its menu and is the perfect place for that unique brunch date.
For that classy Parisian style dining, Pardon My French in Alphabet City is the best place to get dressed up and have a nice meal. Known for their French classics, the omelets and croque madame are must-haves. I dream about their french toast loaded with Nutella, walnuts, and bananas! For $38, you can get both bottomless and food. They have a large indoor dining space with decorative lights for Instagram photos, but their small outdoor patio has the Paris cafe feel on those warm sunny days.
These are some of my favorite spots, but be sure to build your bucket list of places to find your own personal preference. If you ever need a date idea, or a location to hang out with friends, brunch is always the correct answer.
