Best BYOB Brunch Spots in the Big Apple

If only one thing I say about New Yorkers is true, it’s that we are absolutely OBSESSED with brunch. No eggs-aggeration.

My Body is Ready

The Sunday boozy brunch bash is sacred to you, and your 15 friends. We spend more time planning our next outing because we’re lucky to see let alone talk with one another during the craziness of the work week. That’s why it’s a well preserved tradition for friends to get together on a Sunday and catch up on some much needed gossip, chow down on some delicious grub and drink our sorrows away with a couple (dozen) bottomless mimosas – Sex and the City style (we wish).

Eating brunch

The only thing that’s better than a (fairly) cheap brunch in NYC is when you find out that the place you’ve always wanted to go to is BYOB.


That’s why I’m here. Below is a snapshot of the best BYO Booze spots you just can’t say no to for brunch this weekend…

  1. Queens Comfort


Talk about comfort food! From their drool-worthy chicken & waffles and apple cider crumb cake donuts to their Nutella & banana stuffed brioche french toast and pumpkin whoopie pies, this place will give you the #foodgasm of your life. Located in the heart of Astoria, it’s well worth the quick subway ride. BELIEVE ME. Oh, and it’s BYOB, so what do you really have to lose?

2) Nook

3) Tartine

This french inspired west village gem is amaze. The Croque Monsieur, Apple Pancakes and even the regular Eggs Benedict are to die for, and the “could-be-in-Paris” vibe is particularly sweet. Grab your own bottles of champagne and head on down (or up) and give Tartine a taste. Bon appetit!

4) Elephant & Castle

Elephant & Castle

This place is a classic. I come here for their Eggs Benedict over French Toast for a much-needed sweet & salty fix – just what the doctored ordered after a night of irresponsible shenanigans.

Let’s be honest, brunches make the world go round, and New York has some of the best restaurants in the world. Make brunch a habit by going BYOB, keeping your wallet heavy and your hangover heavier.
