The Best Boozy Columbus Day Brunch in Tribeca
Brunch, the ubiquitous weekend meal, gets an extra day of the week devoted to it when holiday weekends come around and you can stay home or go out. This October, Columbus Day weekend offers brunch aficionados an extra opportunity to enjoy a plate of pancakes or some huevos rancheros with some friends before the work week starts over again. But who are we kidding? The best part of brunch is the booze. This holiday weekend, enjoy a tasty meal and a cocktail or two at one of these Tribeca eateries:
This charmingly intimate eatery offers one of the best brunches you’ll have anywhere in the city — and the best drinks, too. Start your day with a gluten-free ricotta hotcake with smashed berries and honey-roasted pecans or enjoy a sweet potato waffle with bacon, Brussels sprouts, and a soft-boiled egg. If you’re feeling thirsty, a long list of wine, beer, and cocktails is sure to fit the bill.
Looking for the perfect brunch and the perfect cocktail to complement it? Look no further than Maman. This French eatery serves everything from freshly baked bread and pastries to a roasted carrot and quinoa salad that’s to die for. Even better, Maman serves up spicy Bloody Marys, the “Mamosa,” their take on a mimosa, and a delicious peach bellini.
The quintessential Tribeca eatery, Tribeca’s Kitchen has been serving ethically-prepared farm-to-table fare for their delighted guests for years. Enjoy a hearty three-egg omelet, a bagel platter with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and capers, or feast on a plate of Nutella-stuffed French toast. Luckily, there’s plenty on the menu to pair with your meal, from mimosas and house-made sangria to bottles of cabernet sauvignon and Chablis.
This iconic New York restaurant’s Tribeca outpost might just be its best. Plates of avocado and burrata toast, scrambled-egg-stuffed popovers, and pumpkin waffles are perfectly complemented by cocktails like the cucumber jalapeño fizz, the blackberry Pimms cup, and the lychee margarita.
This early 19th century building has become one of New York’s best spots for brunch and booze since it was transformed into Tiny’s. As you enjoy plates of whiskey caramel donuts and dulce de leche waffles alongside spiked coffee, lemon- and rosemary-infused gin and tonics, and honey-lavender champagne cocktails, there’s plenty for your eyes to feast on as well, like the restaurant’s antique wallpaper, tin ceilings, and vintage pieces adding character throughout the space.
Whether you’re in it for the eggs Benedict or are just trying to find an excuse to enjoy a daytime bellini, these Tribeca eateries definitely won’t disappoint.
