Weekend Brunch – Park Avenue Winter, Miss Lilly’s, Shanghai Cafe

First off, I want to apologize for getting this post up so late on a Sunday (12:30 pm). To be ¬† helpful to our community, it probably doesn’t help to get brunch recos and updates late on a Sunday morning. When we started this blog two weeks ago, we aimed to post on Fridays, and Sunday early mornings. We are a bit scrappy here in the beginning, but bear with us and I’m sure we’ll get it together.

What we are up to this weekend: So far, brunch-time has been awesome. Here’s how we are rolling after Friday night’s blizzard, as we now walk under a crystal clear, sun filled sky.

1.) We hit up Park Avenue Winter yesterday, and couldn’t have been more satisfied.
I’m so excited to post a formal review of it.

I would definitely declare it as one of The Best Brunches in the Upper East side. That’s a big statement for us. But hands down, we stand behind it every step of the way.

2.) Off to Miss Lilly’s in a few minutes to try out their Jamaican brunch all the NY centric magazines keep raving about. We’ll let you know how it is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.) And, in honor of Chinese New Year (the year of the Snake) we are getting treated by our friend who highly recommends Dim Sum at Shanghai Cafe¬†(Mott & Mulberry Streets). Totally fired up for dumplings and a spirited celebration. And yes, we are doubling up on Brunch today. Usually we don’t do that because it takes away from the brunch experience and mashes together two places. But these are two pretty different types of brunches – one will be more breakfasty, the other more lunchie.
