Who doesn’t love an excuse to have brunch three days in one weekend, especially because you can take advantage of restaurants taking holiday reservations?!

Brunch of course! I recently loved dining at Joseph Leonard in the West Village, where the country friend bacon with Tabasco and honey, and shredded Brussels sprouts with Sriracha gave my tastebuds the jumpstart they needed to kick off a great weekend. Show up early as Joseph Leonard does not take reservations. 170 Waverly Pl, New York, NY, 10014.
