The NYC Native List



Pro Tip: @jessi

All-You-Can-Drink Brunch. Bring your ID- you get carded to get in (yes, even at 11AM).


Sunday In Brooklyn

Pro Tip: @brunchboys

If You Are There For Brunch, Make Sure You Order The Pancakes.


Le Perisen

Pro Tip: @mduenes

Great restaurant with amazing food and a vibe straight from Europe. Go for the creme brûlée!


Northern Territory

Pro Tip: @jamiekane

The rooftop opens at 2pm so make sure to secure your spot early. They have Australian beers and a great sunset view. Saturday night is great if you are 25...


B Bar & Grill

Pro Tip: @kaitperez

Huge bar in LES. Great, loungey atmosphere with dim lighting and an indoor area with fireplaces. An outdoor area as well. A great place to start or end a night of bar hopping in the lower east side. Plenty of bars surrounding.


Queens Comfort

Pro Tip: @jamiekane

This is BYOB which is absolutely huge in NYC! It has a laid back vibe so you can really enjoy that BYOB. Try the Cap'n Crunch Crusted Chicken Fingers.


Lilia New York


Pro Tip: @livetoeatNYC

Cash Only Italian Restaurant In The East Village. The Quality Of The Food Is Apparent And It Is A Lively Atmosphere!


Gallow Green

Pro Tip: @kellymoore2

It's the closest a New Yorker is going to get to brunching in a forrest. The have this awesome Punch Bowl you have to try!


The Flying Cock

Pro Tip: @kaitperez

You can come here for breakfast lunch and dinner. This is the go-to spot in Murray Hill for young professionals just out of college. Great brunch, and great time at night with a DJ. You can't go wrong.


The Promenade

Pro Tip: @bobbyd

The Promenade is probably the best place to get a view of Manhattan, just across the Brooklyn Bridge you're able to get the full skyline, the river, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty, it's my favorite place to show people who aren't from NYC.
