Why settle for the standard single mimosa when you can have a flight of wines to accompany your brunch? Inspired by the patisseries in France, Bouchon Bakery & Café is the place to brunch, see and be seen, handmade pastry in hand.
Linger, relax, scan, soak it all in until brunch ends at 2:30 p.m. and enjoy the view of Central Park through the building’s seemingly endless curvilinear window. It’s like eating outside…without the bugs, noise or the sun beating down (it’s OK, you can still wear your sunglasses).
Christopher Columbus, forever present in his eponymous Circle, can’t leave his post for an Italian breakfast, but you can leave your apartment. Enjoy A Voce for memorable egg dishes with an Italian twist: fried eggs with white corn polenta (uova fritte), poached eggs with spinach and kale puree (uova in camicia), or frittata with egg whites, wild mushrooms, and ricotta (frittata bianca). Slowly sip a L’Italiano made with prosciutto di Parma-infused (trust us on this) vodka, tomato juice, and mozzarella water and live your own la dolce vita.
Landmarc turns on its burners at 7 a.m. But don’t panic. It was a late Saturday night and the good news is that brunch here lasts till 4 p.m. Go classic with two eggs any style or go big with eggs Benedict, Florentine, Norwegian, or en Meurette, featuring bacon, onions, mushrooms, and red wine. Or try the heavenly combination of a Landmarc egg sandwich with sausage, sautéed spinach, roasted tomato, and gruyere on an English muffin paired with a Landmarc bloody Mary (served starting at noon). Is there a better way to spend Sunday in New York than with eggs and cocktails?
