Manhattan and Brunch go together like Peanut Butter and Jelly, or Hilary Clinton to a pantsuit.  It just fits.  Whether you are looking for a bottomless brunch filled with Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s and more, they have you covered.  If you are looking to get your group of friends together in the afternoon after a boozy night out to enjoy some drinks with some fabulous omelettes, burgers and more, there is many options available.  Question is, which ones do we think you should stop by the most?

Here are five choices that we really think you should make a reservation for next weekend.  Fun decor, tasty food and drink, and a great environment, these places have it all and then some.

Peacock Alley inside The Waldorf Astoria

The mac daddy of all brunch locations is located inside one of the most iconic hotels in the entire world, The Waldorf Astoria.  Peacock Alley is an adventure that any New Yorker must experience at least once, as their brunch options range from the normal soups and salads to decadent options including Caviar, Lobster Tails, Jumbo Shrimp, a top of the line omelette station and the most heavenly of desserts you can find.  Oh, and a Chocolate Fountain to dip your marshmallows, strawberries and more into.  Paradise indeed at a great price point.  Go soon as they are closing for the summer in a couple of weeks.  For more information, check out their official site.

Kingsley, The East Village

A newbie to The East Village with an absolute ton of potential, and that is in the brunch department alone.  The alternative to the normal brunches that are out there in Manhattan, chef Roxanne Spruance delights her guests with unique options such as Chicharones, Ramen and Crispy Pork Belly to entice the masses.  Such a great location to enjoy some cultural staples in a wonderful environment.  For more information, check out their official site.

Harding’s NYC- Flatiron

One of the first brunch spots we hit up for Manhattan Digest two years ago was this lovely and homey spot located in the heart of Flatiron.  Harding’s is spacious as it is beautiful, with amazing brunch options available including Vanilla Bourbon Battered Toast, their Harding’s Omelette, which comes with corn, broccoli, roasted tomatoes and cheddar cheese, as well as some great drinks including their Dill Bloody Mary.  Tasty indeed.  For more information, check out their official site here.
