The Grange

This past Sunday, a group of us arrived at The Grange for brunch. My friends who decided on the eatery had been there before and said nothing but good things about the restaurant.  Our group slowly trickled in to the restaurant, one-by-one, and we were all seated after a bit of a wait. Between the…

Hotel Chantelle

I arrived at the beautiful Hotel Chantelle extremely early for my reservation. A coworker suggested I had to try their brunch and gave me suggestions. So a few weeks later, I followed her instruction and made my way to the lovely rooftop.  My friend met me shortly after, so we began to try their cocktails….

Cafe Paulette 

Today, my family friend invited me out for lunch in Fort Greene. I had just gotten out of my very first massage, which she had kindly gifted me, so I felt like I was already floating above the clouds. We, along with another friend, were in search of dollar oysters but realized after going to…

Urban Farmer

Last weekend, I was in Philadelphia for Made In America. This was my second time in philly! A big group of us wanted to head to brunch before driving back to NYC. We were walking around looking for restaurants, when my friend noticed Urban Farmer’s patio.  I walked in and spoke to the hostess who…

Del Frisco’s Grille

A few years ago, when I had just barely dipped my toe into Brunch Life, I dined at Del Frisco’s Grill with my mentor.  She quickly ordered us both a glass of their refreshing White Sangria, which was made with peaches and my favorite white wine, Pinot Grigio. She had been there before so she…

The Grey Dog

Right about now, I’m craving a huge iced coffee to get through this Monday morning…which made me think about a delicious breakfast I had at a restaurant / cafe that had bottomless coffee!  I ventured over to The Grey Dog West Village a few months ago for a coffee and an early bite to eat….

Peck 20

Earlier this week, I was in the land of waffles…Belgium. So naturally, I had to head to brunch!  I was staying right around the corner from Peck 20, which stated they have brunch all day. I looked at the menu and their brunch included various waffle dishes. I walked over and was delighted by the…

Area Four

I’m going to begin this post discussing a very important brunch necessity: A Brunch Bestie. I am currently auditioning prospectives for Brunch Besties but before I left Boston, I had the best brunch bestie. He would text me during the week about brunch and pick delicious brunch spots for us to try. Then towards the…

Bambara

I am in beautiful Salt Lake City today. Instead of sleeping in, I was awoken by the bright sun and the lovely mountains. I looked for restaurants that served breakfast nearby and chose to walk over to Bambara.  A Foursquare user commented that it was one of the best places to grab a healthy breakfast…

Restaurant Marina Kastela

I’m in Split, Croatia waiting on our boat to be ready for The Yacht Week. My friends and I decided to walk across the Marina to grab food. The restaurant overlooks the gorgeous Marina which is lined by hundreds of yachts. We walked in and were greeted by a friendly waiter. They had a pretty…

Woodland

A few months ago, I crashed my friends brunch date. Well it wasn’t actually a date but I invited myself…thankfully, they said they were fine with me joining. We were supposed to meet at another brunch spot but my uber actually dropped me off at the wrong corner and before getting upset, I was drawn…

Philip Marie 

A few months ago, I met up with a friend for brunch. He chose the cute West Village restaurant, Philip Marie, which is described at a “Low-key American standby”.  We arrived on time for our reservation but decided to wait about 15 minutes for a table by the window…so we enjoyed some super boozy mimosas….
