BRUNCH ANYONE???


THE LUXURY BRUNCH:
CASA LEVER (Lever House)
390 Park Ave
New York, 10022
(212) 888-2700


Casa Lever, the restaurant, is on Park Avenue at 53rd Street, within the landmarked Lever House, New York City’s first curtain-wall skyscraper, later imitated in Paris and Berlin. A gracious Isamu Noguchi sculpture garden is situated within the Lever House courtyard. The restaurant interior, meanwhile, beckons with opulent, 1960s retro-chic. Andy Warhol prints of Dennis Hopper, Giorgio Armani, Jerry Hall, Sly Stallone and Alfred Hitchcock enliven the space.


THE BUDGET BRUNCH:
ESSESX HOUSE
120 Essex Street
(@ Rivington Street)
212.533.9616

The menu is extensive, and almost half of the options include a tacked on surcharge (which is understandable). We lovepotato pancakes, but the spinach-shitake-black bean hash that accompanies them just doesn’t work. Fortunately, the sautéed apples and honey cream sauce do work, and help to offset the dryness of the pancakes. We suggest The Essex Cubano with tostones and salsa, or for the very hungover, The Southern – biscuits, sausage, patties and eggs with sausage gravy.



BROOKLYN BRUNCH:
BUTTERMILK CHANNEL
524 Court St.
718.852.8490

ITS IN BROOKLYN, I DON'T HAVE TO WRITE ANYTHING ELSE!!!
