What are the best places for brunch in New York City?
At Marea, we do it sort of at lunchtime, and there are a couple dishes that are not traditional, like the poached egg with crab. Most restaurants, when they call it ‘brunch’ in New York City, it’s a couple of courses. It’s maybe a bakery basket, a very nice omelet or market vegetables, so I think that type of brunch is alive and well. I might do dim sum in Chinatown, or go to dim sum at Chinatown Brasserie. On Sundays, Red Farm does a really, really great dim sum. Or, for brunch, something fun like Trestle on Tenth, or Five Points is classic. Cookshop on 10th Avenue. Those are actually owned by the same people that own Five Points, Hundred Acres and Cookshop. They’re really doing a fabulous job with brunch. And Minetta is an excellent spot.
