Eating Out Out and about Travel & Hotel

Cool and popular Brunch places in New York 2024.

Here are my round up of Cool and popular Brunch places in New York during our recent Christmas trip.

Russ and Daughters – 127 Orchard Street, New York 10002 ( Lower East Side) 

This is the place for the most delicious bagels and lox ( smoked salmon). There is no reservations, but be prepared to patiently wait on their virtual queue. They are so popular that people would even queue for up to an hour, so that says a lot about the food.

The restaurant has been serving up cured fish since 1914 ( yes during World war 1 !).

We had The Classic which was Gaspe Nova smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onion, capers and bagel.

It was very tasty and more-ish, definitely worth the wait.

You can also order caviar and blinis, other types of cured fish such as sturgeon, kippers and more.

There are also small dishes you can order such as Potato Latkes with salmon roe and creme fraiche.

Bubby’s – 120 Hudson Street, New York NY 10013 ( Tribeca)

If you are looking for delicious comfort food with a Southern and Mexican twist, then look no further than Bubby’s. Flaky Buttermilk biscuits, fried chicken and pancakes, Huevos Rancheros and more.

Bubby’s opened in 1990, after the popularity of Chef/ owner Ron Silver’s homemade pies grew.

Despite the restaurant being packed and queues long, it was worth it.

My daughter and I loved the merchandise they sold too. How cute are those coffee mugs? Needless to say, we bought some to take home to London as souvenirs.

Cool and popular Brunch places in New York.Sunday in Brooklyn – 348 Wyeth Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11249-5124

If you are in the Brooklyn neighbourhood of New York, then Sunday in Brooklyn  is a must visit. In fact, we went on a Sunday to browse the various shops and flea markets that were on.

For those with a sweet tooth, then this Sunday Pancake with Hazelnut maple praline and brown butter is just so satisfying.

It is light, fluffy and perfect with a hot cup of coffee.

For savouries, check out this Egg and cheese sandwich, complete with Gochujang Aioli, Hash brown and cheddar on a Brioche bun.

As I’m writing this, my mouth is watering with hunger.

If you can’t make it to NYC to try this, I believe there is an outpost in London’s Notting Hill too.

Finally, hope you have enjoyed this little round up of my favourite brunch places in New York. There should be more posts coming, including where to lunch or dine, and a what to do at Christmas in New York.

In the meantime, do check out my other previous New york posts here.
