Your Guide to St. Patrick’s Day Brunch in NYC

St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, which got the Bitches’ wheels turning. We celebrate brunch every weekend, but this Saturday it’ll be a special one filled with corned beef hash, and green mimosas. Below we’ve compiled a guide of some of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day brunch specials throughout New York City.  Sláinte mhaith!

The Rag Trader
Are you looking for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration that won’t leave you hating life the next morning? The Rag Trader says trade in the gross green eggs and early-morning keg stands, and bypass the belligerent drunk crowds this year to head to its new Midtown hotspot.

Born-and-raised Irishman and owner Mark Fox knows how to do the holiday right. On Saturday, March 17, The Rag Trader will be serving delicious traditional Irish dishes for the holiday like corned beef and swiss on rye with sauerkraut and Russian dressing served with french fries. For the double the fun, head to Bo Peep the underground piano bar and cocktail lounge beneath The Rag Trader.  70 W 36th St, New York, NY

If you’re looking for more of a party, snag tickets to SideBAR’s Kegs and Eggs event. Why wait until nighttime to start your St. Patrick’s Day celebration when you can kick it off at 9 a.m.? Start with an Emerald Isle-themed breakfast buffet that includes green eggs, green pancakes, green bagels, and, of course, the Irish breakfast of champions: Lucky Charms. And since it wouldn’t be a St. Patrick’s Day party without beer, you’ll be able to indulge in a three-hour open bar serving up green Bud Light drafts. 118 E 15th St, New York, NY

Poco is one of the City’s most quintessential bottomless brunch spots, so rest assured its St. Patrick’s Day brunch will be poppin’! The restaurant will be featuring a green shot of the day, as well as discounts on Jameson shots. It’s also serving up an Irish coffee version of its popular boozy “Frothy Coffee” during the legendary bottomless brunch. There are also a couple Irish food specials in the works. 33 Avenue B, New York, NY

Lil’ Gem
All weekend long, Lil’ Gem will be offering a special corned beef and cabbage kibbeh. Lil’ Gem is a Lebanese-ish restaurant, although the owner and executive chef Melissa O’Donnell is Irish, so she is playing on her roots for the holiday. The corned beef and cabbage kibbeh combines roasted Yukon gold potatoes, cooked quinoa, red onion, roasted corned beef, napa cabbage, and chives and is lightly dusted in potato starch, shaped into footballs, deep-fried, and served warm. 29A Clinton St, New York, NY

Boulton & Watt
Lower East Side essential Boulton & Watt will be offering corned beef hash for weekend brunch, served with all the fixins at just $16. And why not raise a toast to your fellow Irish or your traditional brunch dish? It will also be serving $7 shots of Tullamore Whiskey. Both deals are available on St. Patrick’s Day and the Sunday after. 5 Avenue A, New York, NY

As a nod to its upcoming summer brunch series, Hooters will be serving up calorie-splurging brunch bites this holiday. The restaurant is going all out for St. Patrick’s Day, pouring loads of green beer and handing out fun beads for those patrons who forgot to wear their green. Plus, mention Bitches Who Bunch and get $5 off your $25 bill. 155 W 33rd Street, New York, NY

This Midtown spot is collaborating with Guinness for a week-long celebration! Visit between Monday, March 12, and Sunday, March 18, for Guinness-infused menu additions crafted by Trademark Taste + Grind’s executive chef, Adrienne Guttieri.

Park Avenue Tavern
Park Avenue Tavern will be packed with lads and lasses enjoying cold beers, Irish specialty foods including corned beef sliders, and a live band.

Haven Rooftop
Located atop The Sanctuary Hotel in the heart of Times Square, Haven Rooftop is serving up an array of the Irish treats, including the always-popular fish n’ chips. It will also offer a selection of festive drink options including Car Bombs, Jameson shots, The Shamrocker, special green shots, and, of course, Guinness. The rooftop’s doors open early at 12 p.m. and Haven’s regular menu will be offered with selections including crispy calamari, fish tacos, and Haven’s sliders.

Randolph’s Bar and Lounge
After the brunch and green beer festivities have started to lose their luster, head on over to Randolph’s Bar and Lounge at Warwick New York for an array of Irish dinner specialties. Timeless and classic, Randolph’s is serving up dishes like Irish stew, shepherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage, and a Guinness chocolate cake. 65 W 54th St, New York, NY

The typical St. Patrick’s Day goes something like this: beer, parade, beer, Jameson, additional green beer (questionable additional shot of Jameson). Wake up feeling… not so Irish. To fix that, this year New Yorkers can have a post-St. Patrick’s Day Hangover Brunch with Chef David Burke! On Sunday, March 18, the Upper East Side’s Tavern62 by David Burke will launch its new spring brunch menu as well as serve hearty hangover-curing  St. Patrick’s–inspired specials like Scotch eggs with a vegetable relish and crostini, Irish oatmeal and almond crème brûlée, green eggs and lamb with potato pancakes and spring herb sauce, corned beef with a Brussel sprouts hash and eggs, and Guinness and chocolate panna cotta. 135 E 62nd St, New York, NY
