On weekends, you’ll likely wait for a table at this wildly popular brunch spot, which doesn’t take reservations. But it’ll be worth it. The atmosphere is loud, lively, and ready to have a good time—with hip-hop blasting over the speakers, a bachelorette party at the table next to yours, and lots of delicious bellinis and spritzers. While it’s hard to hear your dining companions over the exuberant din, you’ll be too busy chowing down on not-so-basic brunch fare to chat—from the spicy, salty Breakfast Carbonara (complete with crispy pork belly) to the Khachapuri (a Georgian dish that involves the holy trinity of bread, cheese, and egg), and the cloud-soft Souffle Pancakes (their take on the fluffy Japanese pancakes). Brought to us by the same team behind nearby Born and Raised, Morning Glory’s ‘80s-inspired decor is worth the visit alone—an extravagant pink space decked out with checkered terrazzo tile, walnut wood finishes, suede seating, an enormous lighting installation, and plenty of nods to architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
