Post Overview: Best bottomless brunch in NYC
There is no better place to be buzzed than New York City, but getting to that point can cost you the equivalent of a night at a nice hotel. With drinks coming in at $20+ a pop every local has had the “I guess I’m not that hungry” speech with themselves, opting for a cocktail instead of a meal.
That’s why bottomless brunch in NYC is a Godsend. For less than $50 you can enjoy bottomless drinks and everyone has said “I’m getting my moneys worth!” at least once while knocking mimosas back like water.
Some restaurants are reminiscent of a college frat party with loud music, dancing and sugary sweet drinks. Others are more akin to an intimate date-night destination. But no matter which NYC bottomless brunch restaurant you visit, rest assured you’ll leave wobbly-kneed and giggly.
There’s so many boozy brunch restaurants in New York City it can be overwhelming, but I’m here to guide you in the right direction. By no means is this the definitive, complete guide to bottomless brunch in NYC but it’ll get you started.
From American to Asian to Latin cuisines we cover the gamut and have something to suit your fancy. Are you ready to get to the good stuff? Because I am! Let’s dive in.

Best Bottomless Brunch NYC
Bocca di Bacco
Brunch Hours: Saturday and Sunday | 12 PM to 4 PM
Located just steps from the iconic High Line, Bocca di Bacco is one of the best spots to grab bottomless brunch in NYC.
Every weekend, this Italian restaurant offers a two-hour bottomless drink special for $26/person. Patrons are given the choice of champagne, sangria, Bellini’s, mimosas, screwdrivers or bloody Mary’s to pair with their meal.
The reason many folks claim Bocca di Bacco as some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC, is because occasionally upon entry, you are greeted with a welcome shot. That’s right, no better way to start your brunch than with just straight liquor.
Not many places on our list of best bottomless brunch spots in NYC can say they do the same! The unique experience makes for a memorable one.
Address: 169 9th Ave, New York, NY 10011
Pig & Butter (Lower East Side)
Brunch Hours: All Day
Pig & Butter may just take the crown when it comes to the best bottomless brunch in NYC. Why do I make such a bold claim? Well for starters, they do brunch all day.
There is no need to set an early alarm or spend your weekends waiting around hoping to snag a table.
If you want chicken & waffles at 4pm on a Friday then this LES brunch spot was made for you.
And along with your all day brunch you’ll get to enjoy booze! For $20 you can enjoy bottomless mimosas or red & white sangria with your meal.
Few things in life excite me as much as a boozy brunch in NYC. I mean the fact that drinking before 5pm is socially acceptable so long as we splash a little bit of orange juice in our drinks? Sign me up.
Something to note: Make sure to check the hours of operations online before visiting. They vary by season and I don’t want you folks to miss out on one of the best boozy brunch spots NYC has to offer.
Address: 134 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002
Brunch hours: Sundays | 2 to 5PM
Sel Rose is an oyster bar so most folks don’t immediately assume they make some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC. Featuring a small and flavorful menu you’ll find the cuisine is fresh and tasty, perfect to start your day.
The biggest selling point to me is that Sel Rose is one of the few bottomless brunch spots in NYC that includes espresso martinis. As far as I know it’s the only brunch spot in the Lower East Side that’s been genius enough to offer the caffeinated cocktail as one of their bottomless options.
The boozy bottomless brunch will cost you $35 and besides the espresso martinis you’ll also have the option of mimosas, bellinis and bloody Mary’s. Pair your drinks with brunch oysters and you won’t want to leave!
This NYC bottomless brunch is only available on Sundays from 2 to 5PM, and there is a drag show that begins at 3PM lasting until 7PM.
Address: 1 Delancey St, New York, NY 10002
Lasagna Restaurant (Chelsea)
Brunch Hours: Saturday and Sunday | 12 to 4 PM
Let’s get real, who doesn’t love pasta for brunch? Just as the name suggests, Lasagna Restaurant serves some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC if you’re in the mood for Italian.
But what sets this Italian restaurant apart from others is that Lasagna Restaurant also specializes in Mediterranean dishes, too. With an entire section of the menu dedicated to “international specials”, people eager to expand their pallet, have just hit the jackpot.
As far as brunch goes, every weekend Lasagna Restaurant offers a two-hour bottomless special for an additional $15. You can choose between a mimosa, bellini, screwdriver, Bloody Mary, coffee or tea.
I can’t suggest ordering the Cinnamon Challah French Toast, enough. I’m always torn between that or the four cheese lasagna when I visit this NYC bottomless brunch spot.
Address: 196 8th Ave Corner, W 20th St of, New York, NY 10011
Brunch Hours: Saturday and Sunday | 12 to 4 PM
If you’ve been dying to visit New Orleans but can never find the time, might I suggest swinging by 1803? Not only is 1803 one of the best boozy brunch spots in NYC, but the Cajun-Creole restaurant does not miss the mark. I always leave stuffed like a Thanksgiving turkey.
With items like honey chili brussel sprouts, crawfish cakes benedict and buttermilk brine fried chicken (hold on, picking my jaw up off the floor) it’s no wonder my pants seem to be getting smaller.
On occasion there’s a live band that gives the restaurant a French-Quarter vibe, especially if you’re with a lively group of friends.
Although 1803 isn’t a bottomless brunch spot in NYC, I’d be remiss not mentioning them because they serve as one of the best boozy brunch spots in NYC. The full bar at the center of the restaurant is practically begging you to put it to work. All in all, 1803’s ambience and Cajun food makes it a can’t miss spot for brunch in New York City.
Address: 82 Reade St, New York, NY 10007
Calle Dao (Chelsea)
Brunch Hours: Saturday and Sunday (Last drink by 4:30PM if start time is after 3:30PM)
One of the most generous bottomless brunch deals in NYC can be found at Calle Dao. The restaurant is a Cuban-Chinese fusion spot that serves incredible food and unlimited drinks.
For $30 you can expect to receive 60 minutes of bottomless drinks with the purchase of an entree or sandwich. Drinks include mojitos, mimosas and margaritas to name a few but the list goes on!
The entire table must participate but that shouldn’t be a problem since the food here is exceptional, so participating in the brunch special only makes sense.
The atmosphere is lively and the staff here go above and beyond to make sure guest leave feeling well taken care of while enjoying some of the best bottomless boozy brunch in NYC.
Address: 461 W 23rd St, New York, NY 10011
Caroll Place (Greenwich Village)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11:00 AM to 4 PM
For any history buffs out there, the building Caroll Place is located in is chock-full of interesting stories and artifacts. What was once formerly known as Kenny’s Castaway Music Club (a “dusty and dim New York music club”) is now a spot locals go to for some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC.
The lively Italian bar restaurant has repurposed many original pieces found over years of reconstruction. You’ll find 180-year old wood beams and wood floors throughout the venue. If you head downstairs you’ll see a bunch of artifacts that were saved during construction now plastered on the walls.
But the reason Caroll Place has made its way on our list of best bottomless brunch in NYC is because of the $30 boozy brunch special.
Folks get to enjoy bottomless drinks (options like: mimosa, rose sangria or Bloody Mary) along with any entree for 90 minutes. And let’s be real, who doesn’t love pizza for brunch?
It’s hard to pass up on pasta, pizza and unlimited mimosas for such an affordable price. Just make sure to come prepared with your stretchiest pair of pants on deck.
Address: 157 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012
Balvanera (Lower East Side)
Brunch hours: Weekends | 11AM to 4:30PM
Balvanera is an Argentinian restaurant named after a neighborhood in Buenos Aires renowned for its creative spirit.
The sun-soaked and charming restaurant pairs nicely with the Argentinian cuisine for one of the best bottomless brunch experiences in NYC. You’ll find both sweet and savory dishes as well as classic brunch fare for those who like to keep things simple.
The experience is only made better thanks to one of the best boozy brunch deals in NYC. For $25 (with the purchase of a brunch entree) you’ll get to enjoy two hours of bottomless sangria or mimosas.
Both times I visited Balvanera it was was buzzing with lively locals and you’re not going to want to wait for a table. That’s why I suggest making reservations ahead of time for this popular bottomless brunch destination in New York City.
Address: 152 Stanton St, New York, NY 10002
Brunch Hours: Saturdays and Sundays | 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM
We’re going to a tequila bar for the best boozy brunch in NYC? Let me put on my shoes.
Hey in all seriousness – Añejo has the best bottomless brunch in NYC for $55 (everyone at the table must participate).
The table gets 90 minutes of unlimited margaritas, bloody marys, sangrias or mimosas as well as unlimited chips and guac and an order of coconut french toast. Everyone gets their own entree and is practically guaranteed to leave in a food coma.
Even if you’re not craving a drink, Añejo has the best Mexican brunch in Tribeca. The chicken chilaquiles, huevos rancheros and morning tacos are all tempting orders. Brunch is served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30AM to 3:30PM and you’re not going to want to miss it!
Address: 301 Church St, New York, NY 10013
Seamore’s (Upper East Side)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sundays | 11 AM to 3 PM
Native New Yorker and TV host Michael Chernow founded Seamore’s in 2015 after noticing a need for fresh seafood in NYC. For a city surrounded by water most of the seafood was shipped in, and Seamores aimed to change that.
Most of the fish used at Seamore’s is caught on the East Coast 24-48 hours before it hits your plate. The sheer freshness is why I consider Seamore’s some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC.
From fish tacos to lobster benedict, you’d be surprised with the amount of seafood you can incorporate into brunch. If someone in your party isn’t fond of the ocean there’s no need to leave, there are traditional brunch dishes as well.
This is also one of the best joints for a boozy bottomless brunch in NYC. For $28 you can enjoy 90 minutes of unlimited mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys, aperol spritzes and margaritas, (just note you need to order an entree and the whole table needs to participate).
Something to note: Seamore’s only offers brunch on the weekends, we encourage reservations since this is a popular New York City bottomless brunch destination.
Address: Multiple locations in NYC
White Oak Tavern (Greenwich Village)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11 AM to 4 PM
Who doesn’t love a cozy corner restaurant that has amazing ambiance inside and out? Lucky for us, White Oak Tavern has checked all those boxes and happens to serve some of the best bottomless brunch in NYC.
Make sure to take advantage of the $30 all you can drink boozy brunch (that lasts 2 hours might I add!) with the purchase of food.
Pair your unlimited cocktails with classics like chicken & waffles or hearty meals like a juicy burger. Knocking both sweet and savory options out of the park, it’s a bummer White Oak Tavern only serves bottomless brunch in NYC on weekends!
Address: 21 Waverly Pl, New York, NY 10003
Maya (Upper East Side)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11 AM to 4 PM
Looking for a boozy brunch in the Upper East Side? Maya has you covered with a 90 minute bottomless brunch offering a variety of bloody marys, mimosas and margaritas.
An added benefit of this bottomless brunch spot in NYC is that you can also choose to have bottomless food. That means you can enjoy a never ending supply of tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas.
The elevated Mexican restaurant is not like what you’ll find at a food truck either (not hating – I love food trucks).
Chef Richard Sandoval is an internationally renowned chef. He’s built his career on great Mexican dishes, but also on evolving it and pushing boundaries. Flavors are always new and that’s why I consider Maya one the best spots for bottomless brunch in NYC.
The whole table must participate in bottomless brunch at Maya, bottomless drinks and food is $59 per person, bottomless food only is $49. Weekends only.
Address: 1191 1st Ave, New York, NY 10065
Kuxé (Greenwich Village)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sunday | 12 to 4 PM
Kuxé (pronounced coo-shay) is new to the scene but don’t for one second try to convince yourself age has anything to do with greatness. Kuxé is less than a year old and has already hit multiple lists of the best bottomless brunch in NYC.
The reason? The exceptional meals and phenomenal service! Serving delicious traditional Mexican dishes and impressive drinks, Kuxé has quickly made fans out of locals and visitors alike.
Clear stand outs are the guacamole and ceviche, some of the best in the city. But where this NYC bottomless brunch spot really shines is the food and unlimited drink option for $39.95.
Patrons get to choose one entree and enjoy 1.5 hours of bottomless drinks which include the option of mimosas, sangria, bellinis or margaritas. Make sure to make reservations or try to show up early on the weekends to try some of the best boozy bottomless brunch in NYC.
Address: 205 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012
Sojourn (Upper East Side)
Brunch Hours: Saturday & Sunday | 12 to 4 PM
If 90 minutes isn’t long enough for you to enjoy your bottomless boozy brunch in NYC — Sojourn is here to give you what you need. On the weekends Sojourn hosts a two hour unlimited drink special in the Upper East Side for only $30!
Pair a few of those drinks with any dish and it’ll taste even better. Even if you’re sober – the food at Sojourn is worth the visit alone.
The Hangover Cure is a dish made with chorizo hash, swiss chard, poached eggs, hollandaise and spicy avocado sauce that’s great whether you drank the night before or not.
Something to note: if you’re after the best bottomless brunch in NYC make sure you’re visiting Sojourn and not Sojourn Social, which is their sister location that is more of a bar.
Address: 244 E 79th St, New York, NY 10075
Set LES (Lower East Side)
Brunch hours: Saturday & Sunday | 12 to 4 PM
Anyone searching for the best bottomless brunch in NYC but more specifically the Lower East Side, needs to make a beeline for Set L.E.S.
Set L.E.S goes above and beyond by handpicking all ingredients to ensure the freshest and highest quality dining experience. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is pub-style with an Asian flair.
But this Lower East Side brunch spot really shines thanks to its bottomless brunch. For $45 you’re given the choice of an entree or the SET special (like a combo, comes with fries) along with 90 minutes of bottomless drinks.
You can pick from mimosas, bloody marys, screwdrivers, beer or a non-alcoholic drink. It’s super cool that Set L.E.S is a bottomless brunch spot in NYC extending the bottomless option for folks who don’t drink alcohol.
Address: 127 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002
Essex (Lower East Side)
Brunch hours: Weekends | 11AM – 4:30PM
Essex is a restaurant that you can visit for just about any occasion. Whether you’re with a date or friends you’re guaranteed a good time, especially if you take advantage of them being one of the best boozy bottomless brunch spots in NYC.
For $43 you’ll get an entree with the choice of bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, screwdrivers & Narraganset draft beers. Everyone in your party must participate and the table is yours for an hour and a half.
Most of the food items are traditional American-brunch staples like omelettes, eggs benedict and avocado toast. There are a few less common dishes like chilaquiles and arepas as well as a couple vegan dishes.
Unlike other bottomless brunch spots in NYC, Essex is quick with refills, so you really feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. For as busy as it can get the staff are impressively attentive and friendly.
As arguably the most popular restaurant for brunch in the Lower East Side I strongly (emphasis on strongly) recommend reservations.
Address: 124 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002
Ugly Duckling (East Village)
Brunch hours: Saturday | 3 to 7 PM
Running with a rubber duck theme, the Ugly Duckling is where you can find the most wild bottomless brunch in NYC. The restaurant offers two options, one is a traditional sit-down brunch, the other is a full-fledged party.
The Boujee Brunch is a 2 course, 2 hour boozy, bottomless brunch in NYC on Saturday’s from 3-7PM. Things can get pretty crazy, I’m talking people on top of their tables, singing and dancing their hearts away as bubbles fill the room.
The second is called Duck, Duck, Brunch, you can expect a more traditional (but still lively) meal where you order ala carte off the menu. The plates are pretty standard for East Village Brunch, except for the fact you’ll find rubber ducks incorporated as ice cubes, toppers etc.
It’s not uncommon for the East Village brunch joint to have lines wrapping around the building (the restaurant is pretty TikTok famous) so I encourage reservations.
Address: 106 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003
San Marzano (East Village)
Brunch hours: Friday – Sunday | 11 AM to 4 PM
San Marzano is one of the best bottomless brunch restaurants in NYC not only because they offer unlimited mimosas but because the food is worth the trip alone.
Making fresh pasta dishes and serving brunch classics I’d visit San Marzano every day of the week if I could. I try to order something new every visit and I have yet to be disappointed.
For under $30 guests receive unlimited mimosas and one entree of their choice, which makes San Marzano one of the best bottomless brunch deals in NYC. The portions are a decent size too, so rest assured you’re getting your money’s worth.
If I have to nitpick my only complaint would be that the restaurant can get pretty loud during peak hours, but I can’t blame folks for trying to get in on one of the best bottomless brunch spots in New York City.
Address: 117 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003
Pardon My French (East Village)
Brunch hours: Saturday 11 AM to 4 PM | Sunday 11 AM to 4 PM
Pardon My French is (you guessed it) a French-American restaurant serving some of the best boozy brunch in NYC. A simple neighborhood bistro, it’s shocking how packed the restaurant gets the second they open.
There’s a sun-soaked back patio that practically begs for you to visit, especially in the summer when it seems everyone and their mother is dying to enjoy one of the best bottomless brunch spots in NYC.
Frequented by a young crowd, to call Pardon My French a lively restaurant would be an understatement. I wouldn’t make this a first date destination, but if you’re looking to celebrate a birthday this is your spot.
Address: 103 Avenue B, New York, NY 10009
Poco (East Village)
Brunch hours: Friday – Sunday
No list of the best bottomless brunch in NYC is complete without the mention of Poco. For $47 you can enjoy bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, and red or white sangria along with your meal. Without fail, your meal will be surrounded by people celebrating a birthday or promotion thanks to one of the best bottomless boozy brunch spots in NYC.
As if the booze weren’t enough, the menu was curated by Abe Lopez from the Food Network’s TV show “Chopped.” The Spanish tapas cuisine features an award winning vegan smoked truffle mac & cheese that you just have to try.
Along with other items you will find “The Cure” to your hangover. A Mexican dish of eggs, pico and tortillas that will apparently get rid of that pounding headache. I may or may not have put it to the test…
Address: 33 Avenue B, New York, NY 10009
Lil’ Frankie’s (East Village)
If I could give a restaurant a sixth star, it’d be Lil Frankie’s. The East Village brunch spot is sister restaurant to a string of establishments owned by restaurateur and Frank Prisinzano.
Have you ever wanted to have a bottomless boozy brunch in NYC, but didn’t want to commit to drinking a rapid-fire conveyor belt of mimosas for an hour and a half? Me too. That’s why I love Lil Frankie’s.
The Italian restaurant offers a 3-4-1 special, where you get 3 brunch drinks for the price of one. You can choose between mimosas, bloody marys, screwdrivers, bellinis and prosecco for less than $20 and take your time savoring each one.
Lil Frankie’s offers a generous array of brunch plates, and choosing just one can prove to be a difficult task. If you need a recommendation I suggest the polpettine and eggs, which are made in a 900 degree wood-burning oven.
Something to note: Lil’ Frankie’s is CASH ONLY. Come prepared otherwise you won’t be able to enjoy the best bottomless brunch in NYC.
Address: 19 1st Ave, New York, NY 10003
Kyma (Flatiron & Hudson Yards)
Brunch hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM
I stumbled upon Kyma accidentally one day while exploring the Flatiron District and I am so lucky I was hungry that day because wow!
The restaurant serves a lot of fresh fish (which I later found out is flown in daily from the Mediterranean!) and Greek food like Spanakopita (flakey phyllo dough with spinach and cheese).
I went back with my husband for brunch and it did not disappoint. It’s not the cheapest bottomless brunch in NYC, coming in at $40 for 90 minutes of bottomless bellinis, mimosas bloody marys or housemade red or white sangria.
However the price tag is well worth it when you consider the mouthwatering food that comes with it. The menu is pretty evenly divided between American brunch staples and Greek-inspired plates, all made fresh and presented beautifully.
It wasn’t until I got home (and couldn’t stop thinking about my meal) that I did a little research and discovered Kyma was a Michelin rated restaurant. That’s why I don’t hesitate recommending it as one of the best boozy brunch restaurants in NYC to anyone who cares to listen!
Address: 15 West 18th New York, NY 10011 & 445 W 35th New York, NY 10001
Malt House (Financial District)
Brunch hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11 AM to 4 PM
With two locations (Greenwich Village & Financial District) Malt House provides double the opportunity to partake in a fun bottomless NYC brunch. With the purchase of a brunch entree you’ll have access to 90 minutes of bottomless brunch cocktails.
These aren’t your basic drinks either. Sure, there are mimosas and sangrias, but there’s a few unique drinks too. The maltmosa, made with wheat beer, champagne and orange juice is especially memorable.
Although it’s one of the best bottomless brunch restaurants in NYC I’d say the food is good, but won’t be drawing in crowds alone. The dishes do a good job of keeping you from drinking too much too quickly, but ultimately that’s why you’re there. You can expect classic American fare like burgers, biscuits & gravy, and waffles.
Something to note: The Malt House Greenwich Village is temporarily closed during repairs. We’ll update this section when it’s reopened, and you can always check online.
Address: 9 Maiden Ln, New York, NY 10038
Osteria Cotta (Upper West Side)
Brunch hours: Saturday & Sunday | 11 AM to 3:30PM
Osteria Cotta is one of my go-to date night spots thanks to its ambience. It feels like you’re in a rustic wine cellar that’s candle-lit and romantic, somewhere in the European countryside.
And thanks to bottomless brunch in NYC dates aren’t mutually exclusive with night time. You can take advantage of the same charming setting right after you roll out of bed.
At Osteria Cotta, with the purchase of an entree, you can enjoy $28 bottomless mimosas, bellinis, bloody marys or rose sangrias for 90 minutes.
But the drinks aren’t the only incentive to visit the boozy NYC brunch restaurant, there’s brunch pizzas available too. Indeed, it feels like I’m back in college drinking and having pizza for breakfast, but now it’s classy.
The rest of the menu consists of comfort Italian classics including pastas, eggs and salads. If you’re looking to impress, there are few better bottomless NYC brunch options than Osteria Cotta!
Address: 513 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10024
Chanson Le Salon
Brunch hours: Tuesday – Sunday | 10 AM to 3:30 PM
A popular French restaurant, Chanson Le Salon is well known for its modern and bright atmosphere. The outdoor seating area is adorned with muted flowers that have become iconic on Instagram (just take a gander at their tagged section!).
But the cute decor is not the only reason to visit, Chanson Le Salon also hosts an amazing boozy, bottomless brunch NYC is lucky to have. For $35 you can enjoy bottomless mimosas made with apple, pineapple, orange and cranberry juice for 90 minutes.
The drinks are the cherry on top because the food is worth the trip alone. Albeit a simple menu the presentation is just as beautiful as the restaurant and has the taste to match.
Also worth noting – Chanson Le Salon has a patisserie attached to the restaurant where you can come in and enjoy one of the best bakeries in Tribeca, to go!
Address: 355 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10013
