Weekend Brunch at Dojo, Divine Restaurant, Elberta, and North Square
Need a relief from a stressful week at work? Take advantage of a mimosa or seven at one of these brunch spots.
Dojo Restaurant & Bar at Yotel, 570 Tenth Avenue, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.
Head up to this hotel restaurant for the unlimited drinks and tapas offer. For $40, sip on unlimited red or white sangria, bloody marys, and mimosas while snacking on everything from disco fries to sushi. The large communal tables make this a solid group dining option, too, and with that kind of deal, the walk through Times Square may even seem bearable.
Bottomless with Divas
Divine Restaurant, Stage 48, 605 West 48th Street, Sunday, 2:30 p.m.
For something completely different, trade in your benedicts for boas at this bottomless drag brunch, where $39 gets you unlimited mimosas -- plus all the impersonations you can handle. Dolly, Madonna, and Liza will entertain while you dine on a prix fixe menu. You'll need a reservation -- this experience is one-of-a-kind.
Under the Radar
Elberta, 335 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m.
For a brunch guaranteed to put you out of commission, head out to this Prospect Heights eatery where country omelets, sticky wings, and roast duck hash pour out of the kitchen. All entrees range from $10 to $15, which means you can check out the bar's cocktail list and not worry too much about the bill. The place has a speakeasy vibe, which may be why its flown under the radar for so long.
North Square, 103 Waverly Place, Saturday and Sunday, 12 p.m.
While dining with a view of nature isn't uncommon in New York, there's something special about being able to enjoy a leisurely meal and then a walk through Washington Square Park. This Greeenwich Village hideaway serves up items like pumpkin pecan pancakes and eggs benedict done three different ways. Or opt for the $13 brunch tasting for a mix of sweet and savory dishes; a $20 three-course prix fixe includes a choice of entree along with a mimosa or bloody mary in addition to coffee or juice.
