NYC Patio Brunch Guide 2017

It’s that time of year when a patio, or at least some form of outdoor seating, is the only acceptable way to have brunch in New York. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite patio brunches below. Explore, and enjoy!

East Village

The Standard East Village Garden Brunch

The Standard East Village

Just to the side of this modern hotel is a beer garden that gets very busy and rowdy at night but is a calm oasis during the day. This stunning, green garden is the perfect spot to grab brunch, bask in the sun, and possibly even enjoy some live art. Read our review of The Standard East Village here. The Standard East Village Garden serves lunch (not brunch) every day of the week. 25 Cooper Square, New York, NY 10003

West Village

Quality Eats

Voted our Best Birthday Brunch last year,  Quality Eats is low key, but perfection. From their Grilled Nueske’s bacon to their fried eggs and pepper toast, there’s no better place to brunch outside in the West Village. It doesn’t hurt that their patio is absolutely adorable. Read our review of Quality Eats here. Quality Eats serves weekend brunch Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 19 Greenwich Avenue, New York, NY 10014


Seamore's Brunch


One of our editors’ favorite local brunch spots, Seamore’s offers a sustainable seafood menu. We love that the dishes are unique and relatively healthy. The expansive patio smack in the middle of Nolita doesn’t hurt either. Read our review of Seamore’s here. Seamore’s serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. 390 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013

South Street Seaport

Industry Kitchen

Nestled right along the East River on the southern-most tip of Manhattan, Industry Kitchen offers modern American cuisine with a seasonal menu. The space has an open-air format, so if you don’t want to sit on the patio itself, you can at least feel like you are. Plus, the unobstructed views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn skyline can’t be beat. Industry Kitchen serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. 70 South Street, New York, NY 10005

Grand Banks

Grand Banks is on our must-try list for the summer. We’ve been for happy hour, complete with fresh oysters and craft cocktails, but have yet to head down to TriBeCa during brunch hours to check out their menu. Did we mention Grand Banks is an old fleet vessel? Oh yea, it’s an old fleet vessel stationed along Pier 25. Does it get any better than brunch on a boat? Grand Banks serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Hudson River Park, Pier 25, New York, 10013

Meatpacking District

La Sirena

This Meatpacking hot spot will quickly become your new go-to when your friends ask you where to go to brunch outside.  The food is absolutely to die for, and the ambiance is hard to beat. It’s no wonder La Sirena was named our Best Overall Brunch of 2016.

Sunday in Brooklyn

Sunday is a newcomer to the NYC brunch scene, but it’s already shot its way up to the top of a number of brunch must-lists in the city–including ours. We bet their food tastes even more delicious (if that’s possible) when it’s being consumed on their sidewalk patio or rooftop garden. Read our review of Sunday in Brooklyn here.
