No trip to New York is complete without brunch. The Big Apple doesn't just do brunch right, it takes it to a whole different level. We've dug up five of the most insane, mouth-watering, and truly unique brunch spots in the city. Hey, we won't judge if you plan a trip to NYC just to try them.
5 Most Outrageous NYC Brunch Spots
1. Spoons, Toons, And Booze @ Nighthawk Cinema
One of Williamsburg's hippest theaters, Nighthawk Cinema, serves up brunch with a heavy dose of 90's nostalgia for the Spoons, Toons, And Booze event.
Watch all your favorite Saturday morning cartoons, indulge your inner child with an all-you-can-eat cereal bar, and enjoy some adult beverages. Try out "The Sonny," a White Russian topped with cocoa puffs, or get a shot of Bailey's to booze up your bowl of cereal.
2. Maya Bottomless Brunch
If you're looking for the ultimate bottomless brunch experience, look no further than Maya in the Upper East Side. For just $49, you'll have two hours of unlimited small plates and bottomless brunch cocktails.
While bottomless brunches may be plentiful in NYC, Maya really steps it up with creative Latin American cuisine and nine different cocktail options, like margaritas and mimosas made with freshly pureed fruit.
3. Broadway Drag Brunch @ Lips NYC
Have your brunch with a show! Lips NYC hosts a show-stopping Broadway Drag Brunch where your servers double as performers. Get ready for nonstop entertainment as your host Ginger Snapt takes you through renditions of Broadway classics, from Lion King to Hamilton. For the bargain price of $26, you'll get a show, brunch entree, and your choice of a cocktail.
4. 230 Fifth Avenue Buffet Brunch
Is there a better NYC pairing than brunch and rooftops? We don't think so. You might know 230 Fifth Avenue from its famous igloo rooftop bar, but did you know they hold a buffet brunch every weekend from just $29 per person? That's all the food you can eat with panoramic views from this Midtown hotspot. If you're there in the winter, don't fret—they have heated igloos you can dine in.
5. Gospel Brunch @ Red Rooster
Head to Harlem for Red Rooster's legendary Gospel Brunch. Feast on some delicious soul food while watching a powerful performance by Vi Higginsen's Gospel For Teens Choir. This event is held downstairs in Ginny's Supper Club and features beloved menu items like chicken and sweet potato waffles and shrimp and grits.
