Lots of bars are open until 6am with this being New Years Eve, but c'mon this is New York shouldn't some places be open until 6am, we're trailing Vegas and Miami now) and with all that partying you're going to wake up, if you truly ever go to sleep hungover, partying and most of all hungry. Well wanna keep the party jumping. Head over to Sons of Essex (133 Essex St. between Rivington and Stanton, LES, The City; F, J, M, Z train to Delancey-Essex)
Sons of Essex always has a jumping brunch because the food is damn good, but caramel buttermilk pancakes, damn and juicy burgers with a hint of rosemary and oh yes Lobster Benedict!?!?!? Whew that's some serious assortment and great food, and oh yes if the food wasn't enough guess what they've got 3 DJ's spinning on New Year's Day to keep the joint jumping (by the way a typical brunch serves over 200 covers, and yes I talked to the chef for that info). So get a few hours of nap time and for the real people the party continues to New Years Day because hell half of you are out of town and on vacation to through the weekend or can sleep it off for the rest of New Year's Day at worst.
I expect they're brunch to be from at 1-8pm because they'll need to clean up after a long New Year's night and to get they're usual brunch crowd and I expect them to do unlimited mimosa's for an additional charge. Get set to bring in the New Year in style and upbeat, but slightly subdued too just like the Sons of Essex itself. Oh and miss out on brunch on New Year's Day just visit again on the weekend, it'll still be worth just less DJ's.
