Brunching Uptown? We got you. Downtown? Done. The best boozy? You didn't even have to ask. Our brunch coverage knows no bounds! In the expansive borough of Brooklyn, however, where options are basically limitless, it's hard to come up with the best-of-the-best brunches. But we think these 10 are totally worth waking up for.
This Pizza Is so Spicy Only 12 People Have Finished It
Park Slope So it may not be the cheap and greasy type, but this pseudo-diner has been a BK staple since 1997. Classics are served up with a twist -- think seven variations of eggs Benedict, amaretto-battered French toast, and kale-sweet potato hash. So be reasonable about how many free mini muffins you down lest you not make the most of your main. And remember! It's cash only.
Cobble Hill In what may be the best mash-up of all time (suck it, Cronut), this comfort-food specialist fuses pecan pie and French toast into one gloriously decadent plate of custardy brioche that's smothered in bourbon molasses and toasted nuts.
Prospect Heights Jalapeño-infused tequila gives the Spicy Bloody Maria its namesake kick at this hot-hot locavore spot. The glass is garnished with house-pickled carrots and sprigs of fresh herbs from the rooftop garden, obviously.
Clinton Hill Your window for unlimited mimosas is only three and a half hours long on Saturdays (noon to 3:30pm), but that's certainly enough time to do appropriate damage. Just coat your stomach with fried chicken & red velvet waffles or sausage and grits first.
Ditmas Park Sometimes you just need a hangover-busting burger in a quiet, dark place. The tiny gastropub offers six combos made with its hefty 7oz patties -- like the Alamo with a fried egg, onion ring, and pepper Jack -- and three non-beef alternatives (turkey, fish, and veggie), if you're into that kind of thing.
