Brunch is back in New York City as a weekend event — even if to-go cocktails are no longer allowed and indoor dining still faces some regulations. Restaurants in the five boroughs contain an endless sea of midday dining options, so it’s not easy to tell which ones actually care about the food and the experience, or which are just serving some eggs and other brunch promotions to appease the masses. Luckily, there’s a choice for every type of brunch goer.
With that in mind, here is a guide to excellent brunch options spread across NYC for geographic ease. Ritzy or affordable, creative or straightforward, this map has it all.
