NYC New Year’s Day Brunch Guide 2019


Celebrate New Year’s Day at Añejo in Hell’s Kitchen or Tribeca with a boozy brunch filled with Mexican libations and small plates. At both locations, Añejo will be offering two hours of unlimited small plates and brunch cocktails for $47 per person. Indulge in morning tacos with scrambled eggs, braised pork, chorizo hash, salsa verde, pico de gallo, cotija cheese and cilantro, or the carne asada con huevos with grilled skirt steak, yucca tots, two fried eggs and romesco sauce. Their margaritas are not to be missed with six different variations, and for this occasion, the Bloody Maria, which subs vodka for tequila, will certainly do the trick.

The Bitches give it four Champagne flutes. Read the brunch review, here.
