Harry's Cafe

THE PLACE

Harry's has been bringing classic American fare to FiDi for the last 30 years (before it was even called FiDi, maybe). It's a boisterous spot to visit during happy hour, and keeps its booziness going for Saturday brunch. We like the old New York feel and fun group seating.

What to Eat

The Brunch Prix Fixe menu is $42 per person, and includes an appetizer, entree and dessert (and drinks). The Duck & Mushroom Hash with poached eggs and toast is particularly delectable, and for a sweet ending, pick the cheesecake if it's on the menu.

What to Drink

This is the highlight of Harry's brunch: there's UNLIMITED champagne, which you can choose to top off with orange, grapefruit, blood orange, or peach nectar juice for an extra $8 a liter. Just beware-- there is a 2-hour table limit!

Sons of Essex

THE PLACE

Sons of Essex has an old-timey vibe, and is filled with antiques, vintage photos, and leather-bound books. This Lower East Side eatery packs in a hip, hungry brunch crowd, and has become quite trendy. We can imagine Ron Burgundy, Aziz Ansari and the Olsen twins all having been there, but not together.

What to Eat

The brunch menu is massive... in a good way. We usually choose the Loisaida Steak Huevos, a hearty dish with a Latin flare, and topped with pico de gallo and salsa verde. The creatively named "Eggs Benedictowitz" is also solid (and fun to say). It's a twist on the classic eggs benny, with smoked salmon and a potato pancake.

What to Drink

Don't miss the S.O.E. Coffee, a mix of Patron XO Cafe, Absolut Vanilla, milk chilled on the rocks, and a dash of nutmeg. It's creamy and sweet with a liquor-y kick, and perfectly comforting for this cold, welcome-to-fall, NYC weekend.

The Breslin Bar & Dining Room

THE PLACE

The Breslin is a trendy, semi-hipster spot attached to the even more trendy Ace Hotel. It has a gastropub feel and is decked out in dark wood. Tip: try to grab one of the comfy booth seats.

What to Eat

This menu is meaty. The very notable April Bloomfield is the chef at The Breslin, so you can't really go wrong. We like the Pumpkin Pancakes with Spiced Butter & Pecans, as well as the famous Full English Breakfast-- complete with fried eggs, pork sausage, blood pudding, bacon, tomato & mushrooms. The Chargrilled Skirt Steak is a good way to get in touch with your carnivorous side.

What to Drink

Coffee. The Breslin and Ace Hotel are also connected to Stumptown Coffee Roasters from Portland, Oregon. It's strong, but you'll still want to drink a whole French Press yourself, or at least with one other person. Order one for the table.

The Good Fork

THE PLACE

Where to go when you have that must-do trip to Ikea? This place. The Good Fork is a great, local favorite in Red Hook and the perfect place to go pre or post your trek to get that MALM bedding. It's a cozy and warm eatery, with a really cute backyard that will be hard to resist.

WHAT TO EAT

The Good Fork excels at brunch fare with an Asian influence. Definitely try the dumplings, and for an entree opt for the bibimbap or the spicy chicken tinga over cripsy tortilla and eggs.

WHAT TO DRINK

The bloody Mary here is the way to go. It's an a la carte order, but it's quite delicious and is one of my favorite bloodies in NYC. It will be properly garnished with cornichons, olives and celery.
