Bagatelle, NYC: With its welcoming decor and ambiance, Bagatelle will not disappoint you. The food is great (try the french toast) and the service is outstanding. Once 3 p.m. hits, the servers close the curtains and the party begins! The DJ really adds to the fun atmosphere of this brunch spot. Make sure you dress to impress, and expect to spend some money. It’s worth it!
Tremont 647, Boston: This brunch spot is famous for its crispy prosciutto Benedict. Each dish on the menu is heavy, and will make your mouth water! Be sure to make reservations if you plan on attending brunch, otherwise you’ll have to wait a while for a table.
Tilikum Place Café, Seattle: This small café is easy to miss, but definitely worth a visit. Big windows open onto Cedar Street, and the interior has a very welcoming vibe. Try the baked pancakes with roasted apples!
The Queen Mary, Long Beach CA: This unique tourist attraction also happens to be a floating hotel featuring a variety of restaurants! Among them is the Grand Salon. This venue hosts a Champagne Sunday Brunch that includes more than 50 dishes from around the world. Along with classics like omelets and eggs Benedict, the menu also includes Asian-style ribs, imported cheeses and Albondigas (Mexican meatball) soup. Add in live music and free-flowing champagne, and this is one Sunday tradition not to be missed!
Huckleberry, Los Angeles: Come and enjoy weekend brunch at this superb bakery and café! Once you experience the amazing pastries and house-made breads, you won’t want to eat anywhere else. Savory dishes include the playful Green Eggs & Ham, a house-made English muffin topped with La Quercia prosciutto, pesto, a runny sunny-side up egg and peppery arugula.
Nico Osteria, Chicago: Brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The comfy couches and chairs help to create a relaxed atmosphere at Nico Osteria. Just a warning: the food is a little pricey, so if you’re looking to save money, I would choose one of the other brunch spots on this list!
Tongue & Cheek, Miami: If you’re ever in Miami Beach, Tongue & Cheek is one restaurant you have to try! Lemon ricotta pancakes, braised brisket Benedict, beef cheek burger with pimento cheese and sweet onions on brioche, and of course amazing pastries and raw bar options! The menu, of course, also offers a variety of booze. What more can you ask for at brunch?
