July 19, 2016

Brunch and day parties, it’s two awesome things that New York City is built on. You can’t have one without the other, because honestly, many brunches in NYC morph right into day parties. You can mostly certainly kill two birds with one drunken stone.
That’s where we come in. We’ve combed the city for the ultimate in brunch and day parties. You deserve to celebrate the weekend like it’s your birthday, why not! Here’s a couple of brunch spots in the city with the best day parties you’ve ever been to.
Carroll Place

Greenwich Village is one of the best neighborhoods in NYC to explore. It’s quaint, structurally gorgeous and chocked full of goodies, like Carroll Place. If Italian American food and wine is your thing, this is your place. There’s slap-your-momma food, cocktails for every taste, pasta, pizza and mostly every guilty pleasure you could think of. And for day parties, the live entertainment makes it stand out. Saturday and Sunday brunch offers the best deal in town with traditional and unique specialties such as baked truffle eggs, pancakes & gelato, steak & eggs, and more.

This delicious spot has a brunch special every Saturday and Sunday. One entree plus unlimited Bud Light drafts, mimosas and bloody Mary’s from 12-3PM for $20/person. That is a deal worth hitting up. With burgers, nachos and other bar favorites, you can’t go wrong. In the heart of Union Square, it’s practically close to every train, which is all the more reason to get your drink on.
If you’re looking for a legit party during the day, you’ve found it. Taj offers their signature brunch only on the first Sundays of the month. It’s that good they’ve got to give it to you with limitations. But that first Sunday of the month, you get two hours bottomless and unlimited drinks for $40. Brunch goes from 12-7 pm, so pace yourself. There’s also a buffet, complete with a chicken wing station and all your breakfast favorites. Gluttony is sure to happen.
We’ve already told you all about Revel’s brunch. It’s so delicious and amazing that they call it paradise. From all the eggs your way to omelets, to penne alla vodka and juicy burgers, there’s plenty of mouth-watering choices to sustain you though this day party. You’re also dining al fresco, so there’s sure to be all kinds of Instagram envy ready to come your way.
Every Saturday from 11-6pm and Sundays 11-9pm, you’re invited to one of the best day parties and brunches in the city. They have a $45 brunch prix fixe menu that aims to please. You’ll get two hours of unlimited mimosas, bellinis, bloody Marys, Shock Top or their house Pilsner with you brunch entree. And don’t even get us started on those entrees. They’ve got variations of baked French toast, multiple egg dishes, hangover fries and more.
Day party and fish? Brunch and fish? Yes. Everything goes when you’re on a boat. This brunch will transport you on a mini vacation. You’ll cruise away on the Hudson River, catch stunning views of the city, while dancing, drinking and eating your heart out. Oysters and scallops and branzino, oh my! Be prepared for light bites (it’s like you’re Gwyneth Paltrow), but tasty cocktails and even tastier views.
Get yourself some ridiculous NYC views, since you’ll be a stone’s throw from the beautiful Empire State Building and stay for the brunch. The menu boasts a bacon wrapped egg and cheese muffin, stuffed French toast, flatbreads and Parmesan and dill hashbrowns, just to name a few of the carbs you should order. And who doesn’t want to say they’re at brunch on a rooftop?
