This Mexico City-inspired spot in Midtown is a great option for authentic Mexican food in a space that looks like it was designed by your cool aunt. Try to make it there specifically for weekend brunch - their patio gets packed on Saturdays and Sundays, but you’ll be much happier if you arrive early enough to grab a seat outside. There’s usually a live mariachi-jazz band playing (this is a good thing, we promise), and their brunch specials, like chilaquiles and huevos chelo (crispy potato tacos topped with fried eggs, salsa verde, and cotija cheese), are both delicious and potentially life saving, depending on the night you had before.

Left Hand Path is a bar in Bushwick that kind of feels like an old wooden ship. Also, there’s a backyard. Have a birthday there.
