NYC Sunday Brunches That Are Worth Checking Out

Sunday brunch is here, and you’re looking for a place that has the essentials for a great time: great food, a welcoming environment, and, of course, mimosas. Manhattan is full of options for celebrating the weekend with friends and food. We’ve rounded up NYC Sunday brunches that are worth checking out this weekend.

The East Pole Kitchen & Bar

Located in an Upper East Side brownstone, The East Pole Kitchen & Bar is both a neighborhood favorite and a destination for special occasions, especially brunch. At the forefront of New York’s farm-to-table dining scene, The East Pole is known for its elegant home cooking. Feast on duck hash, lemon ricotta waffles, or a full English breakfast. Cheers to the weekend with a spicy Maria, jalapeno-infused tequila, or a Sicilian-blood-orange mimosa.

The Smith Restaurant

Offering bistro classics, seasonal fare, and craft cocktails, the Smith Restaurant Midtown is the perfect stop for a boozy Sunday brunch. Thinking local, natural, and sustainable is a big part of the restaurant’s philosophy and goes into every dish served inside their doors. Step out of your comfort zone with unique brunch cocktails ranging from the Barnstormer, made with bourbon and aperol, to El Toro, a classic bloody mary made with tequila and Mexican green-chili liqueur.  


Rustic and relaxed, Uva NYC offers a comfortable atmosphere and authentic fare for any occasion. Come by for an Italian country-style brunch on the outdoor patio. Sip on a refreshing Aperol Spritz or Argento cocktail while indulging in rich strawberry-and-mascarpone pancakes.  

The Ribbon NYC

Experience a quintessential New York dining experience the moment you step foot into The Ribbon NYC. With a menu to delight all palates, Sunday brunch here is comfortable and welcoming. Enjoy country favorites, from buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy to prime rib poutine, and a full raw bar stocked with fresh oysters, lobster, and caviar. For drinks, sip on bubbly cocktails, like their orange mint mimosa, or splurge on brunch bottle service, with your choice of champagne.
