Chef Charlie Palmer over at St. Cloud at The Knickerbocker Hotel is now offering a weekend-only brunch! Stop in on Saturday or Sunday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and enjoy the hotel's latest rooftop dining installation called "Brunch. Beer. Garden." Nosh on European-inspired plates like Chef's Schnitzel BLT and Strammer Max, and Apple "Pancakes" (a German take with egg nog and cinnamon sugar) as well as classic dishes like Fancy Steak and Eggs. Wash it all down with bottle of German beer or cocktails big enough for two like the Jager Freeze (served in a pineapple) or the Mountain Mai Tai. Bottoms up! Make sure to take a photo of your experience and tag @StCloudNYC and @TheKnickNYC using #BrunchBeerGarden.

Now you can wake up and hit up Lupulo for breakfast starting at 7 a.m. Choose between three different dining experiences including taking a seat at the counter and order from the coffee bar, grabbing a drink and a bite at the takeout window, or enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the dining room. Chef George Mendes is using Portugal as his inspiration with menu items like Homemade Linguica Sausage Sandwich and the popular The Voyager Latte (made with cardamom, turmeric, nutmeg, and pepper). Of course, you can also get your Avocado Toast with a fried egg on wood-charred bread. The addition of black-eyed peas adds even more protein to this yummy dish. Menu is available on weekdays only from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Who's in the mood for brunch pizza? Take a trip to Brooklyn and order up one of Circa Brewing Co's delectable breakfast pies. There's a wide range of options from Lox to Fancy Bacon & Eggs. And it wouldn't be brunch without an Eggs Benedict, right? Try their pizza version that's topped with maple cured ham, spinach, classic hollandaise, and farm eggs. Pair your pizza with one of their cocktails like the Nova cocktail - bourbon, lemon, Aperol, pamplemousse, and circa Belgian wheat – or the For Goodness Sakes – Mezcal, lime, honey, egg white, purple basil, and tamarind soda. Either one definitely goes well with a piping hot pizza.
Hudson Jane NYC
360 Myrtle Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11205
If you're in the mood for comfort food, Hudson Jane NYC is the place to be. Chef and owner Megan Johnson is setting the bar high with an American favorite – the crispy hash brown. Yep, she's using this fried potato masterpiece as a substitution for bread on what's she's calling The Double Brown™ (yes, it's trademarked because it's just that good). You may need a fork for this one – it's layers of a sunny-side up egg, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Aleppo chili aioli between two marvelous hash browns. It comes with Zapp's Voodoo kettle chips so you can enjoy even more crunchy potato-ness. You're welcome.
