Gramercy, the neighborhood bordering Stuyvesant, Flatiron and Union Square and home to the private garden, is also home to some delicious restaurants perfect for a leisurely brunch. This classic New York neighborhood has quality brunch spots for every budget, here’s our favorites.
Located inside the Gramercy Park Hotel, the foodie friendly Maialino sits across the street from the coveted Gramercy Park. This rustic restaurant is inspired by the distinct neighborhoods of Rome, and the light, relaxing atmosphere feels both upscale and comfortable. With perfect pastries like the toffee-glazed brioche bun or pistachio croissants, it’s easy to overlook the simple and delicious cacio e pepe scrambled eggs. If you aren’t in the mood for breakfast fare, there are many lunch options as well, including the fettuccine alla carbonara or the porchetta sandwich. Maialino is committed to local farmers and their neighborhoods. Throughout the month of September, one dollar for every triple scoop of gelato or sorbetti will be donated to Citymeals-on-Wheels.
