Brunch Away the Day

Brunch Away the Day

May 06, 2019

The month of May includes Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and for many, graduation week, and it’s the perfect time of year for celebratory Sunday brunches. We’ve highlighted a couple of Manhattan favorites that are not to be missed.

Rosemary’s in the West Village is just a mile away and has an authentic Italian menu that includes Nutella focaccia, freshly made ricotta, aged prosciutto, and plenty of healthy veggie sides. All eggs are sourced from Rosemary’s very own farm and herbs come directly from the rooftop garden. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended.

Claudette near Washington Square Park is a bit of a splurge, but their pre-fixe two-course Mother’s Day menu is sure to provide all the delight of their usual fine Meditteranean fare. It includes a savory breakfast broth, an avocado tartine, flavors such as mint, anise, ginger, sumac, and more. They’ll offer that menu all week beginning Monday, May 13th from 8 am-11:30 am.

And if you’re looking for a more indulgent, boozy brunch, try ;" href="http://www.latarteflambee.com/" target="_blank">La Tart Flambee just half a mile north of Lex Hotel for a combo deal of 5 delicious French-style flatbreads and bottomless mimosas.
