Upstairs @ The Kimberly Hotel


Upstairs is a BrunchCritic favorite for its swanky style and fantastic views. You can sit in the patio, and in case of rain, the main section has a retractable roof and large glass windows. You'll experience an inside-but-feels-like-it's-outside vibe in that case. Upstairs is also near the MoMA, making it convenient for a pre or post museum fix. Sometimes Upstairs features international DJ's for some beats to accompany your meal.

What to Eat

Upstairs serves all the brunch classics from eggs benny to thick buttermilk waffles topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream. We like the decadent Truffled Duck Egg Toast, and of course the Lobster Roll to celebrate summer.

What to Drink

Sitting on this fancy rooftop with amazing city views goes hand in hand with drinking champagne. Really, how could you think of drinking anything else? (Unless it's the "Honey Breeze" of course, made with muddled honeydew melon and acai).
