15 Bottomless Brunch Restaurants in NYC
New York has close to 30,000 restaurants currently in operation and with that many options how are you suppose to narrow it down to one for your brunch experience for the weekend? *Enters your foodie friend Dom* New York City makes brunching a lifestyle and can you call your weekend complete without brunch? I am a believer that there are levels to this brunch game. You have your quaint brunch/breakfast spot, then your brunch where you are specifically going for the food, and lastly the bottomless brunch experience. Here is a round of 15 restaurants in NYC where you can indulge in an endless libation experience (responsibly of course).
This Italian restaurant has been capturing the hearts and stomachs of Harlemites in the neighborhood for six years. Their dinner is so impressive that you will find yourself coming back for lunch or dinner in the near future.
This Caribbean-Soul lounge has been one of the popular choices on this historical avenue which is known as "Harlem's Heartbeat." With a small intimate outdoor seating area and sleek and sexy bar up front, the Cove has you covered for any occasion. Some of my favorites include their chicken & red velvet waffles and lobster mac & cheese.
The Bronx is the home of hip-hop and one of the hottest restaurants called Beatstro. Beatstro is inspired by the history of hip-hop which is deeply rooted in the South Bronx. The Beats and Brunch is every hip-hop head’s dream with all their favorite song playing in the background while enjoying food inspired from combination of Latin and soul-food.
The Bronx - 135 Alexander Ave, The Bronx, NY 10454
This is my go-to spot for a good time during brunch, or when I have a guest in town and I want to provide them with the ultimate NYC Brunch experience. When your time is up at your table you can take your carafe and head to the back room where the party continues where they typically Top 40.
Midtown East - 450 Park Ave S, New York, NY 10016
At the bottom of the Excelsior Hotel lies one of the best-kept brunch secrets in New York City which is Calle Ocho. With eight different types of sangrias and unlimited drinks during the duration of your meal, there are house rules that are easy to follow. This Latin restaurant is an excellent place for large groups as well, and my regular order is the Calle Ocho burrito and the Punta Cana sangria as well.
Pro tip: Order an appetizer to extend your brunch duration for more drinks.
Upper West Side - 45 W 81st St, New York, NY 10024
Located on Flatbush Mangoseed provides you with all the Caribbean feels you need by serving everything from Jerk Salmon and Waffle to Coconut Fish and Grits. They are reasonable in pricing, covered outdoor seating, DJ, and bottomless for an extra $22. Mangoseed has five different types of mimosas and a rum punch for you to enjoy for 90 mins of libation bliss.
Flatbush - 757 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11226
How can you create a bottomless brunch list for the New York City and NOT include the infamous Woodland? I have had friends come from far away and mentioning they want to brunch at Woodland. The brunch scene at Woodland is what would happen if a brunch and day party had a baby.
Park Slope - 242 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217
With many locations throughout New York City my favorite is in Williamsburg. For only $41 you are able to get one entree and 90 minutes of unlimited booze which includes their brunch punch, bloody marys, mimosa, or beer. Randolph does serve pretty healthy size portions to soak up all those bottomless drinks. My menu recs include Challah French Toast, Eggs Benedict, and a killer Fried Chicken Sandwich. They are great for large groups and I highly encourage making reservations to avoid a long wait.
The Shady Lady
Couldn’t leave out my favorite Queens brunch spot on this list. Arrive early and hungry!
Astoria - 34-19 30th Ave, Astoria, NY 11103
