There isn’t much that compares to a lazy summer morning. Spend yours chowing down on some delicious brunch foods while working on your brunch buzz. Eateries all over the city offer brunch menus throughout the year and some revamp their brunch menus depending on season and market availability. Here are five brunch spots we love!
The ultimate keg and eggs brunch can be found at The Cannibal, beer and butcher shop café that specializes in—you guessed it—meat and beer. Sit at the 8-seat butcher counter for the best view of the chefs at work or enjoy the summer weather and sit in the garden section. Pair any one of their 450 beers paired with a delicious scrambled egg sandwich with cacio pepe and bacon. The menu also offers items such as country biscuits with sausage gravy and grilled cheese with Vermont cheddar, Gruyere, bacon and pork belly. Not in the mood for the traditional bellini? Try The Cannibal’s “brewdriver,” a cocktail that uses beer as a mixer. Brunch is served Saturday & Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Throughout New York City, you can find that many restaurants offer a prix-fixe meal that could include 3-course to 10-course meals. Alongside the menu is normally a list for a suggested wine pairing, from a Gruner Veltliner with your oysters and a bursting-with-fruit forward Beaujolais to go with your Roasted Duck. This is a lovely experience to indulge yourself in but what happens when wine is not your forte and you don’t necessarily care to pair it with your dinner? Many non-wine drinkers tend to gravitate towards a house cocktail or draft beer.
Lucky for you, in midtown something fun is happening every Wednesday. At newly opened Little Town Restaurant Row, they will be offering a Beer Tasting and Dinner Pairing once a week through June 27th. Starting back in the beginning of April, every month a new brewery that’s served among one of their 100 locally source brews will be offered. As the sommelier fills you with knowledge on the beer flight, Executive Chef Jordan Andino will prepare specially selected savory dishes from all over New York to pair with your brewski.
