Chronic Brunch

  1. Maialino


    2 Lexington Ave.
    New York, NY 10010

    Let’s call this one what it is – us getting it right the second time around. Maialino is outstanding, and we’re here to revise out initial sour review.

  2. Speedy Romeo

    Speedy Romeo

    367 Classon Ave.
    Brooklyn, NY 11238

    Speedy Romeo is the best restaurant you haven’t been to. Put it on your Hit List and make the trip to Clinton Hill. Then feel free to thank us. On second thought, thank them.

  3. Cafe Habana

    Café Habana

    17 Prince St.
    New York, NY 10012

    Café Habana is and always will be one of the coolest and (and best) places to eat in New York City. Yes it’s great for brunch, but we like it best during the week, when the crowds aren’t quite so crazy.

  4. Westville East

    Westville East

    173 Ave. A
    New York, NY 10009

    Westville East is the ultimate utility spot, delivering the goods (literally) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in affordable fashion.

    Shalom Japan

    310 S 4th St.
    New York, NY 11211

    Shalom Japan is what happens when a pair of chefs from different backgrounds (Japanese and Jewish) meet, fall in love, and start making food instead of babies. This exceptional Williamsburg spot should be at the top of your Hit List.

  6. James


    605 Carlton Ave.
    Brooklyn, NY 11238

    The menu at James may not be all that original, but damn does it deliver the goods. Yes, you’ve seen kale salad and pork belly on every single menu this year, but chill the f*ck out. It’s still good.

  7. Freemans NY


    End of Freeman Alley
    New York, NY 10002

    Freemans ranks among our favorite restaurants of all time. We’ve got a lot of history here, and the food, although not 9.0 worthy as it once was back when we started this site, is still really damn good.
