There is always a new food trend in New York City, whether it’s the ramen burger craze, cronuts or menu items like “seacuterie” seafood sausages. But one culinary tradition that has stood the test of time, is the classic Sunday Brunch NYC style. Unfortunately, a decent omelette and a few mimosas can be quite pricey. Luckily, there are budget-friendly options for savvy brunchers looking to get the most bang for their buck.
Whether you’re taking the whole family out or meeting a group of friends for a celebration, it can be hard to find an affordable spot that can accommodate a large party on busy weekend mornings. The best thing to do is to make a reservation if your group includes more than four people. Brunch Upon A Time suggests Essex, an unassuming brunch spot on the Lower East Side that not only offers the affordable option of an entree and three drinks for $23, but also serves Sunday brunch until 8 p.m. for those super-late risers.
For Non-Traditional Breakfast
New York’s mélange of culture provides culinary choices for any palate. If you are in the mood for something a little different, try one of the many unique and delicious restaurants that offer a new spin on the brunch menu. Jack’s Wife Freda is a great place to get your breakfast fix with an Israeli and Middle Eastern influence. This popular Soho spot has a cult following and it’s easy to see why when you try the shakshuka or the rosewater waffles. All entrees are reasonably priced and paired perfectly with a unique cantaloupe mimosa. You can use Onnit Coupons from Giftcardspromocodes.com to save good amount.
For Boozy Brunches
One of the best ways to save a few bucks at brunch is to go to a restaurant that offers an all-in-one deal on food and drinks. If your favorite part of brunch is the booze, many hot brunch spots offer bottomless mimosas and bloody marys. For one price, you can have as many morning cocktails as you can handle. Many places across the city offer bottomless drink deals with an entree for an affordable price. Forbes recently listed some of the best bottomless brunches you can find in Manhattan, including Cafe Cortadito in the East Village. This Cuban restaurant offers an all-you-can drink assortment of mimosas, red and white sangrias, champagne mojitos and margaritas, bloody marys and house beer, with a 90 minute seating for $27.95. Another affordable choice is Epstein’s Bar, which might be among the best deals out there at only $13.50 for an entree and bottomless mimosas.
Who says “dinner and a show” is the only culinary/entertainment combination? How about “Brunch and Broadway.” Broadway musicals are another NYC staple and would be the perfect ending to your brunch-filled weekend. Plus, those early show times
How about rolling that brunch and show into one event? Beginning in October, Room 53, a piano bar in Hell’s Kitchen, will be home to Sunday morning brunch with a side of Broadway fun thrown in. The morning entertainment will include videos and music from several top shows and live performances. There will also be Broadway-themed games and trivia where guests can win tickets to shows and free brunches.
