Football & Sunday Brunch Restaurants In NYC…


Sunday brunch in New York City is a ritual.

Not to mess with tradition our first Sunday back in NYC we met our daughter for brunch in the west village.

It was a gorgeous, peaceful day…calm because the NY Giants had already played and lost on Thursday Night Football.

Courtny booked at the hard to get into American Bar.

The American Bar partner’s concept draws on their travels to private members’ clubs like Harry’s Bar in London and classic American  restaurants including Chasen’s, Mortimer’s, and Swifty’s to create an environment that exudes clubbiness without exclusivity.

The place was filled to the brim. Even the charming indoor dining area was buzzing.

My daughter and I shared a delicious grass fed Brunch Burger with onion jam, american & cheddar cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato accompanied by crispy fries ($24).

We also ordered the Peanut Chicken Salad with romaine, shaved brussels sprouts, avocado, carrots, sesame sticks, radishes and a unusual and tasty peanut dressing ($26).


My husband selected the Herb Salmon Burger with fried shallots, pickles and very spicy remoulade…he enjoyed it ($23).

As is the new wave of thinking a $4.50 Iced Tea did not qualify for a refill.

The outdoor dining vibe screamed New York and American Bar delivers all the traditional Sunday Brunch elements.

This past Sunday we brunched at the iconic Pastis in the Meatpacking District.

We had a 10:15am reservation so we could eat and walk before the 1pm Giants kickoff.

Pastis is consistent.

Historically, everything I order is always fabulous.

The Guyere Omelette was comparable to any omelette I have had in France ($18).

The Smashed Potatoes were crispy on the outside, soft and flavorful on the inside.

The bread is always spectacular.

Courtny’s crispy bacon was delicious and accompanied her Eggs Any Style and potatoes ($17).

David’s Buttermilk Pancakes were fluffy and delectable ($17).

Pastis never disappoints…even the coffee is always strong and flavorful.

The Sunday Brunch tradition lives on.
