Experts say breakfast (or brunch, in our case) is the most important part of the day. Fill up at one of our five favorite brunch spots before enjoying your big day in the Big Apple.
You don’t have to trek far for quality brunch when you stay at Royalton Park Avenue. Simply roll out of bed and make your way to the Sundeck for our sweet and savory offerings at High C. We suggest homemade lemon scones with Devonshire cream, assorted jams, and a refreshing glass of prosecco.
From the masterminds of Momofuku Noodle Bar and Milk Bar comes Má Pêche, a lofty midtown restaurant that serves up creative Asian-influenced New American cuisine. And their menu is anything but ordinary — from oysters and kimchi bean toast, to chicken and waffles, rhubarb poptarts, and red bean pancakes with lavender maple syrup, their unique brunch offerings can only be found in the heart of New York.
Joseph Leonard provides authentic farm-fresh meals amid rustic decor with a blonde wood bar and exposed brick wall. Take your pick between eggs, salads, sandwiches, and fruit, and wash it down with a Michelada, Bloody Mary, or an oyster-topped Bloody Caesar. Cold brew, espresso, cappuccinos, and lattes are also served straight from Stumptown Coffee Roasters.
Hailing from New Orleans comes Maysville, an American whiskey bar and southern comfort food haven with an affinity for all things bourbon. Come hungry and leave happy with a belly full of steak tartare, gumbo, country ham toast, banana bread, and of course, bourbon libations.
Enjoy brunch with a view at Riverpark on the Upper East Side. Their fine American cuisine, including ricotta toast, brisket hash, and cinnamon donuts, is served in a garden-ensconced plaza with an incredible view of the East River. Be sure to book a reservation to beat the rush — this is a popular spot for locals.
And don’t forget — our rooftop pool is open for the summer! Drop in for a dip after brunch.
