The best thing about the weekend is to have brunch with your friends and families. The perfect combination of breakfast and lunch. Here are our top 10 picks to enjoy your brunch in NYC:

Russ and Daughters – Manhattan

Located at 127 Orchard Street, New York, New York 10002 Russ and Daughters offer the traditional NYC brunch: bagel with cream cheese and lox. A classic bagel and lox will cost you $14.00.

It is fair to say that Russ and Daughters is the best brunch spot in Manhattan. The place was established in 1914.

in addition to that, the café even has a bar for those in search of a boozy brunch. In fact, they have a selection of signature cocktails; champagne, wine, and beer; and my personal favorite, an assortment of infused Bloody Marys.

The ideal brunch at Russ & Daughters consists of a classic board with nova smoked salmon, chive cream cheese, an everything bagel (with tomato, onion, and capers), and a side of wasabi infused row.

Russ and Daughters open from Thursday through Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 pm. You can get there by taking the F/M train to Delancey Street/Essex Street station or the B/D train to Grand Street station and walk from there.
