Medi Wine Bar

Draped in beautiful tapestries, Medi Wine Bar cancels out the hustle and bustle of one of New York City’s busiest neighborhoods, and provides a relaxing atmosphere for hungry patrons. Offering Mediterranean-fusion cuisine, try Medi Wine Bar for a cultural brunch experience.

44 & X

Though slightly on the pricier side, the great American brunch at 44 & X is undoubtedly worth it. The mere sound of their Hazelnut Brioche French toast with raspberry compote and smoked Irish bacon is sure to make mouths water. If that doesn’t do it for you, try the huevos rancheros with salsa cruda, avocado, tortilla and black bean relish, or opt for fresh fruit with yogurt and granola.
