5 Father's Day Brunch Spots to Try This Weekend in NYC

By Lauren Brocato | June 13, 2019 | Food & Drink

With Father's Day this weekend, waste no time making a reservation for the family at these five spots in NYC.

David Burke Tavern


Treat Dad to an all-American brunch (with mimosas, obviously) at David Burke Tavern, where the celebrity chef transformed two floors of an Upper East Side townhouse into a contemporary eatery. This spot’s elegant yet relaxed vibe is the perfect place to brunch Sunday morning. Specials for the day include steak and eggs, lobster steak and a shrimp avocado “guactail” with quinoa, shaved fennel, radish and citrus. 135 E. 62nd St., Manhattan, 212-988-9021;


With an elegant take on French brunch, Demarchelier’s Father’s Day specials include organic omelettes and salmon, alongside the traditional a la carte menu. 50 E. 86th St., Manhattan, 212-249-6300;

Public Kitchen

Toast to Dad at this luxury rooftop meal overlooking the Lower East Side. Public Kitchen’s brunch menu is packed with American favorites—eggs benedict, avocado toast and cinnamon french toast. 215 Chrystie St., Manhattan, 212-273-9403;

The Empire Rooftop

If you’ve got a clear schedule on Sunday, then The Empire Rooftop is the place to be all day. A brunch menu and breakfast buffet are just the start of your celebrations. Sip on brunch cocktails, including the Mango Mule with Earl Grey tea-infused mango vodka, fresh lime and ginger beer, and the Cucumber Smash made with Hendrick, cucumber, mint and lime, and lounge by the pool at this high-end hangout. 44 W. 63rd St., Manhattan, 212-265-2600;

Sant Ambroeus

The Milanese-inspired menu, featuring Omelet Tricolore with fresh mozzarella, spinach and tomato, and lemon ricotta pancakes topped with fresh berries, is a sophisticated choice for your Father’s Day festivities. 265 Lafayette St., Manhattan, 212-966-2770;
