Fonda

Fonda’s a great location for meals any time of day. Boasting a relaxed environment and affordable prices in three locations—Chelsea, the East Village and Park Slope—Fonda is an awesome taste of modern Mexican cuisine. As they say on their website, the tortillas are hand-pressed, the guacamole is made to order, and the margaritas are thoughtfully crafted!

Lasagna Ristorante

Offering amazing dining and takeout experiences in Chelsea, Lasagna Ristorante serves delicious contemporary Italian cuisine—and is especially well-known for their seafood, surprisingly—at a great rate! You can get one entree and a mimosa, Bellini, screwdriver or Bloody Mary, or for $11 more get unlimited drinks.

Bocca di Bacco

With three venues in the Theater District, Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea, Bocca di Bacco has a unique and sophisticated, upscale style. From brunch to dinner you’re sure to enjoy a cool, eclectic vibe from these trendy eateries. It’s a bit pricier than some of the other entries on our list at $59, but brunch includes a bottle of Champagne or rosé, a pitcher of mimosas, or a pitcher of Bellinis. Considering their incredibly vast and delicious menu featuring tons of contemporary Italian dishes, Bocca di Bacco is a safe bet for an amazing brunch.

Cafe Cortadito

For $32 you can select a single entree and 90 minutes of tropical mimosas, red and white sangria, Champagne mojitos, Champagne margaritas, Bloody Marys or house beer. It’s not quite ‘unlimited,’ but if you can’t accomplish all your brunch drinking in an hour and a half, you might need to stock up on liquor for the home instead! Cortadito has a really awesome atmosphere with a wooden bar, cigar labels on the walls and Cuban musicians over the speakers! You’ll feel like like you just wandered into a private cafe on the corner of a street in Havana. Whether or not you can afford the recently legalized trip out to Cuba to enjoy a taste of island life, you can definitely grab a great brunch bite at Cafe Cortadito!

At the corner of First and Fifth, Three of Cups is an awesome venue that’s been in business for a quarter of a century! It’s hard to beat that kind of pedigree, but it’s even more difficult to beat their two-hour $10 bottomless drinks special with your choice of an entree and Bloody Marys, mimosas or their famous sangria! From baked eggs to frittatas, omelets burgers and French toast, Three of Cups has an awesome selection of brunch staples to go with your drinks!
