Find Brunch Right Now

This Week in NYC: May 26-31

Back to the post-Memorial Day grind in the city. We hope you enjoyed a great long weekend with plenty of time in the sun, bottles of “summer water,” and of course brunch. Emily and I are meandering our way back to the city and looking forward to a jam-packed social calendar to start celebrating the summer season. Here’s what we’ve got on tap this week.

If you’re stuck with the post-vacation blues, or partied a little too hard with the extra day off work, relax and rejuvenate at the Equinox Printing House Spa. This particular Equinox location in the West Village features a tranquil 15-meter pool and sundeck alongside the Hudson. 421 Hudson St, New York, NY


Chocolate fiends, rejoice. The highly beloved Nutella Bar in Eataly reopens today at 5 p.m. The new space will feature a more expansive floorplan, more menu options, and even a Nutella fountain. That’s what dreams are made from. The first 300 visitors will received a free mini-Nutella cone! 200 5th Ave, New York, NY

Round out your week with a little culture and check out “Art, Garden, Life,” a new exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden. The feature is an ornate garden that serves as a tribute to Frida Kahlo, as botanical subjects were a running theme throughout her impressive work.

Botanical subjects were a running theme throughout the work of Frida Kahlo. You’ll explore a replica of her garden and a display of relevant paintings. More information here. 2900 Southern Boulevard, Bronx

Volunteer season is kicking off at the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, a 6,000-square-foot plot in Greenpoint. You’ll be rewarded with a killer view of Manhattan and helping to nurture organic fruits and veggies which are then used by acclaimed local restaurants such as Paulie Gee’s and Eastern District. Check out the farm’s website and Twitter (@rooftopfarmer) for upcoming volunteer sign-up opportunities. 44 Eagle St, Brooklyn, NY

It’s no shocker that Bitches love bubbly. We’re looking forward to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this afternoon at Liberty State Park. Don your prettiest sundress and a ridiculous hat to sip champs in the sunshine. General admission tickets start at $65. Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ

If champagne isn’t your thing, how about an unforgettable day eating and drinking your way through the boroughs for the Bon Appetit Grub Crawl? With a daytime option through Clinton Hill or a nighttime option through new Chinatown, you can’t go wrong touring and tasting the city’s must-try locations.

Brunch of course! Lately we’ve been on an Italian kick and enjoyed the wood-fired brunch pizza at Tavola in Hell’s Kitchen and the housemade ricotta at Upland in Flatiron.
