In honor of my first Sunday Funday in AGES since COVID-19 hit, I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite places to brunch. There's just something about living your best life and still getting into bed before 11pm that resonates with me! I can't tell you how many memories were made these past years during weekend brunches. Looking back, it makes me miss Pre-COVID19 life so much!

Here are a few places that left a lasting impression and I'd definitely recommend! Please note that some of these are currently closed due to COVID-19, but be sure to bookmark them for when we're living in better times!:

The Shady Lady

The best chicken and waffles that I've had, to date! There's music and an overall great atmosphere. I went there during Christmas time and waiters were dressed as elves and Santa Clause!

Style: American Comfort

Here's The Deal: Every Entree includes a free coffee or tea, PLUS your choice of one free drink (Mimosa, Bloody Mary, Bellini, Well Cocktail, Sangria, "The Shady Royale" or juice), They used to have bottomless brunch, but due to COVID-19 they are no longer serving bottomless.


While sadly it's currently closed due to COVID-19, we came to this restaurant three times in the last two years! Their website states they are set to re-open in 2021, so hopefully we will be able to see it once again!

Style: Latin American / Asian

Here's The Deal: It's both unlimited drinks AND unlimited food (tapas style) for $49 per guest. You can choose from bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, sake sangria and margaritas - plus endless brunch plates for the entire table! Pictured above is an example of their Salmon Benedict (which I did not try, but the table loved)

Il Bistardo

One of the top-tier party brunches that I've been to. They've obviously raised their prices from the first time I visited. Due to COVID they're currently closed, but I'd definitely recommend this place for a hands down memorable experience. In my opinion you're going here for the party, not the food quality (in case you're a foodie).

Style: Party Brunch

Here's The Deal: 5 Prix-Fixe options, with choice of one entree and one personal bottle that includes Champagne, Rosé, Mimosa, or Bellini. The price ranges between the sizes of the bottle you get. $45.00 for an 187ml bottle of champagne, rose, or bellini and an entree, $65.00 for a full sized bottle, $150.00 for Moet Imperial, $200 for a bottle of dom Perignon and your entree. Your final price will include an 8.88% New York City Taxes fee, 15% Gratuity For Service Staff and a 5% Administrative Fee.

Queens Bully

Another place where I've gone to frequently. It's simple comfort food, but with a rustic vibe. Music is usually some throwback 90's songs in the background which gets you hyped if you haven't heard them in a while.

Style: American Comfort

Here's The Deal: For an additional $25 dollars on top of your entree order, you get 90 minutes of unlimited mimosas or Bellinis. Trust and believe that you get your moneys worth.

EGP Oceanside

I went here back to back Sunday and Monday, believe it or not. So glad my friend recommended this to me, the ambiance is great and Sunday Brunch was a vibe.

Style: American Comfort

Here's The Deal: For an added $10 you can enjoy unlimited mimosas, Bloody Mary's, Moscow mules, or Dominicanas along with a purchase of an entree. While we didn't take this deal this past weekend, it's definitely a steal.

Although not all of these are open currently for their brunch specials, 2021 is right around the corner and they're definitely places I'd recommend. Stay tuned for more brunch posts coming soon!

Hope you guys have a great rest of the week.

With Love,

From Bindi
