NYC’s Only ALL Brunch Resource

Week of 01/06 ONE+ONE ARCHIve

Momofuku Ssäm Bar

THE PLACE

David Chang's popular Momofuku Ssäm Bar recently launched brunch. Add it to your roster of places to hit up in the East Village. The restaurant has a great corner location, and once inside you'll find modern, minimalist decor with sleek, wood paneling on both the walls and ceiling. The main bar is a central focus of the restaurant and great for solo brunching, but there is plenty of table seating for groups of two and four as well.

What to Eat

Definitely try the duck bacon tacos. They are crispy and they are divine. If you're in the mood, start with the Kimchi Deviled Eggs. You'll either love 'em or hate 'em. To each their own.

What to Drink

Momofuku Ssäm Bar has created a brunch cocktail menu with a twist on all your classic brunch drinks, from the mimosa to the bloody Mary. Selecting any one of them will be an adventure.

Reservation Policy

Reservations are not accepted.

Locanda Verde

THE PLACE

When we meet people out and about the City, at a bar for example, they always ask us for our top brunch spots. Locanda Verde is one we consistently mention among other favorites. The restaurant is an Italian taverna with a popular dinner service, and the brunch is outstanding too. We like the energetic atmosphere and the space's sophisticated yet rustic design. Word to the wise, Locanda Verde isn't the cheapest. And, you'll encounter a trendy attitude at the door. It's all an experience-- just go with it.

What to Eat

Get the lemon ricotta pancakes. They are delicious. We also highly recommend the shrimp and polenta. If you want something eggy, go ahead and try the frittata. Locanda Verde is the only place we can find a frittata that's not overly dry.

What to Drink

To pair with the pancakes, go for the Lemon Frizzante, a mix of Beefeater Gin, Green Chartreuse, Rosemary Syrup, and Prosecco.

Reservation Policy

Reservations are accepted for parties as small as two.
