Sunday Booze Brunches

Some people/gods consider Sunday a day of rest. Others see it for the brightly lit Saturday night that it is. If that's you, then hit these new, high-end, all-you-can-drink Sunday brunches

Wild Salmon: 11:30am-5:30pm622 3rd Ave, at 40th; 212.404.1700This just-opened Pac Northwest seafood spot's offering endless bloodies and mimosas for a paltry $9. For chow, you can go Ă  la carte, take down a $28 three-courser, or build-your-own omelette using exotic fillers like Alaskan Red King Crab -- oddly not dissimilar from a Denny's omelette, if you substituted "Alaskan Red King Crab" with "Barbaro". See the brunch menu

Calle Ocho: 11:30am-3pm446 Columbus Ave, between 81st and 82nd; 212.873.5025CO keeps ten varieties of barreled sangria in the center of the room, and you're free to try the lot, then try them again, just to make sure. Fortify yourself for this unending onslaught with salmon/scrambled-egg crepes, or the Latin Benedict: made with Indian bread, Serrano ham, two poached eggs, chipotle-scented hollandaise, and an even spicier smidgen of Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal. See Calle's brunch, and their sangrias

Sapa: 11:30am-3:30pm43 W 24th St, between Broadway and 6th; 212.929.1800$20.07 for all the brunch cocktails you can stomach, plus an entrée, e.g., the Lobster-Mushroom omelette, or, more appropriately, the Hangover Burger, topped w/ a fried egg, pico, and guacamole. The hitch is, this deal's only available at the bar -- though if you consider that a drawback, you should be at home watching The McLaughlin Group.
