NYC Guide: Current Brunch Favorites
1. Rockefeller Center Cafe
This cafe has both an indoor and an outdoor area, which sits right above where the ice rink usually is. Great view of the inside of 30 Rock, with seating right next to the big statue and all of the flags. Live music at brunch as well! As for the food, try the pancakes. If you’re leaning toward lunch, go for the watermelon and feta salad as an app.
2. 44 & X
Nice restaurant on the west side..quite Hamptons-esque with the clean, white decor. The food here is incredible, which explains why they’re always packed. Book in advance! And have the Bloody Mary.
I’ve never been here..but it’s on my to-do list, so I had to include it. I drove by the other day, and the outdoor decor alone is what caught my eye. Menu also looks great.
4. Le Pain Quotidien
My go-to for last minute brunches. I love sitting outside with my computer or a book catching up on “me time”. Have the avocado toast (above)..it’s delicious. Throw in the fresh berries and an iced coffee (or their fresh lemonade!) for sides.
