We here at Manhattan Digest have been noticing how Harlem is becoming quite the foodie city in The Big Apple. Our first spot that truly made us realize this was Corner Social, which is conveniently located off the 2/3 line at 126th and Lenox. When we went earlier this year, it was strictly dinner (which was the bomb). Now it’s brunch time, and our bibs, forks and knives were ready.

Brunch and Manhattan goes together like a perfectly executed Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich, or that amazing mix that you play on your way to that Long Island beach you love going to each summer.

So which ones do we recommend that you try? We have three options that we think you will love each and every weekend in the Big Apple.

If you don’t like Brunch, then you need to be studied. Especially if you are a New Yorker. New Yorkers are to Brunch what the Beyhive is to Beyonce, or what Britney Spears is to our eventual marriage (she will figure it out eventually). We all love rising late on Saturdays and Sundays, getting our friends together over some Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s, and having a great time. Luckily, I have found the next best thing in your Manhattan Brunch, and this place is called Kingsley, located in the heart of the East Village.

Brunch is to most New Yorkers what Peanut Butter is to Jelly, or what Britney Spears is to crazy circa 2007. It just fits. There is a bevy of places you can go to for so many different types of delicious dishes, and they always include a tasty beverage (or 5) of choice to enjoy with your friends and family. Well, one of our favorite places at Manhattan Digest, Copper Kettle Kitchen, has some pretty great deals for their weekend brunch. The Upper East Side Staple will be doing brunch from 12-4 on Saturdays and Sundays, and have quite a lot in store for you to enjoy.

If there is one thing Manhattanites can all agree on is that weekends are pretty much for sleeping in after a long night out, and then heading off to grab some delicious brunch on both Saturday and Sunday. It is sort of our little version of the best day after remedy you could possibly imagine. With the weather being as cold as it is outside, we are hurrying our little butts off to whatever brunch place we love to enjoy what they have to offer. So what do we here at Manhattan Digest think are some pretty great Winter brunch spots to enjoy with your friends and family? Take a look.

Brunch is one of the best parts of any Manhattanites weekend. It is that time to reconnect with a bunch of friends and family, relax, enjoy some delicious mimosas and eggs and just appreciate the time off. With all the noise from the surrounding tables though, it tends to get a bit loud and not necessarily what you want to hear for a relaxing experience. Cue in the Kitano New York’s Sunday Brunch, located conveniently on Park Avenue between 37th and 38th Street. Know as the only Japanese-owned hotel in New York City, they offer a fantastic Sunday Jazz Brunch scheduled at 11am and 1pm.
The Brunch features the stylings of Tony Middleton and his band, which consists of two amazing players on the cello and piano, respectively. I went with a friend of mine yesterday to experience the jazz brunch up front and it truly was lovely and delightful. Tony’s voice is really hard to put into words as the levels and depths he is able to communicate to his audience is so strong and wonderful that it really added to the overall experience. Tony and his band also treated us to some legendary classic songs during his set. The hotel itself is quite beautiful and majestic in size, and the room where the brunch was featured was pretty spacious and fantastic as well.
Here is a bit more about the brunch. Offering two performance sets – one at 11am and another at 1pm, guests can avoid waiting times and make reservations in advance (a rarity in the NYC brunch world!). Served buffet-style, the Sunday Jazz Brunch includes an assortment of breakfast and supper items, along with the choice of bloody mary, mimosa, or aperol spritz for $35 per person. The food is plentiful and delicious. Definitely try out the salmon, eggs and variety of fresh fruit they provide to add to your experience.

For anyone that lives in New York City, there is one thing that truly binds us together (and no I am not talking about the weird smells from the subway). That of course, is food. More importantly, the endless choices that we have for Saturday and Sunday brunch. Whether you are looking for a great hangover meal or a relaxing place to meet up with a bunch of friends before the day gets going, we all are on the lookout for that savory and sweet place to wake us up and keep our tummies satisfied. So where is a good place to find all of that? KTCHN, in my opinion, is the place to go.
