One of the most popular brunches for 20-somethings is the $22.95 special at Essex that allows diners to order a meal along with three Bloody Marys, screwdrivers or mimosas. Choose from standard fare like french toast with fruit or more interesting entrees like manchego macaroni and cheese with chicken apple sausage. This brunch is one of the places to see and be seen at least once during your NYC lifetime.

This isn't the cheapest of the unlimited brunches, but for the Meatpacking District, this is pretty affordable. For $30, you can order an entree item and enjoy unlimited champagne cocktails. If you have more than 7 people in your party the same brunch special will cost you $35, and for more than 12 guests you'll pay $45 per person. Bring a rowdy bachelorette party or come in with a smaller group to save a few bucks. Either way, by the time you head for the exit, you may not even notice how much you just spent.
