Sometimes, the best plans for a holiday weekend are to stay exactly where you are. That's particularly true in NYC where the streets get quiet, the City Bikes are abundant, and you can get that hard-to-reserve table with a little more ease.
That's why we've rounded up your Bashed Guide to Brunch for Labor Day Weekend.
This colorful restaurant at the Hotel on Rivington in the Lower East Side will make you feel like you've sailed through the Mediterranean Sea and landed in the world of fresh branzino and seaside aperitifs.
These guys know how to serve up crowd pleasing dishes, and a good viewing of virtually any major sports event. We're particularly a fan of this location because of their indoor/outdoor seating options and terrace so you can have your french toast, and US Open, too.
Perfect Plates. Quiche. Lattés. Flowers. All made with TLC, just like your Momma would.
This place knows us well enough to know that we would brunch every day if we could, and that's just what they do. Brunch. Every. Day. The only standing question you'll have is biscuits and gravy or grain bowl for the win?
Let's be honest. Sometimes, we prioritize our restaurant over the company, but at Spring Natural, you don't have to choose! From tofu scrambles, to chicken and waffles, this place is basically the Iceland of restaurants: they get along with everyone.
Eggheads unite at this spot in Williamsburg (and Nolita) where they are hopelessly devoted to serving eggs different ways and around the clock. Pro Tip: The Brooklyn spot is 4 times the size of their Nolita location, so grab a group and skip the wait in Williamsburg.
The perfect spot for you to re-fuel and re-charge during your inevitable Labor Day shopping spree.
