Unlimited booze and food brunch on New Years Day! Happy New Year to me! We loves our unlimited boozy brunches here in NYC. Any reason to get liquored up in the afternoon is a good thing!
I set up this boozy brunch on New Years Day for a group of us since most stayed in on NYE. Heck, going out that night is amateur hour anyway and overpriced at best.
Had a 1:30 reservation and were seated around 2:00. No biggie, as I knew it would be crowded here. Unlimited brunch is for two hours and we were told they would not kick us out at 4:00 when it ended. Hey, for $39 it’s basically a steal. Unlimited cocktails of all types and family style plates of tapas on the whole menu. Yes, the WHOLE menu. There is a lot to choose from here. I really loved the spicy bloody mary and the mango mimosa. Those went down way too easy! Plus, they certainly did not skimp on the booze! I also tried the lychee mimosa and the tequila spiked agua fresca. A few traditional margaritas also made it into my mouth. Wowza! I drank a lot of booze in those two hours.
Have to love a Mexican restaurant with this kind of deal on New Years Day. To me, there is something so festive about Mexican food that it was a perfect fit for our celebration. As I said, there was so much to choose from. Mexican style corn on the cob, chipotle crispy bacon, huevos rancheros, chicken enchiladas, bacon wrapped hot dog, ceviche, chicken tamal, Mexican French Toast with Nutella, quesadillas, braised pork shoulder tacos, eggs benedict, tortas, carmelized plantains, and many more. I’ll admit some plates hit it out of the park, and some were just ok. You name it as we ate it! Get in mah bellah!
Service was hit or miss. Our waitress was nice enough and seemed a bit forgetful on some orders but it didn’t matter to me. We had a lot of booze and food flowing. The food came out slowly at the start as the place was packed. Being in the industry as a bartender back in the day I just knew they would be short staffed today. It’s notorious for people to call in sick on New Years Day and this was no different. She was working all the tables in our area by herself. I think it was the owner/manager who came up to me and chatted for a bit to apologize for the slow service and waits on food and drink refills. Again, it was no big deal as we were all having a blast with great company over booze filled fun conversations. I did notice that after he came by the food and drinks started hitting our table a lot faster. I do appreciate the great customer service. That always adds a positive to my review of any business.
Overall. a wonderful choice for our New Years Day partying. The food was pretty decent, and the drinks were flavorful and strong. Beats the heck of going out on New Years Eve and paying $100 or more for lackluster drinks in an overcrowded place filled with the bridge and tunnel crew.

Dayum son, I’m drooling on myself again, and not because I’m drunk again.
