The 20 Best Places to Brunch with a Group in NYC

  • Place: 210 Tenth Ave. (Chelsea)
  • Reservation: Resy or call 212-335-2277

This Chelsea classic is a true NYC classic and is usually quite busy on weekends, but there is also tons of seating, both indoors and outdoors, so you probably won’t have to wait too long if you don’t have a reservation. And don’t let the word ‘diner’ fool you: Empire Diner puts an elevated spin on the diners of yesteryear with upscale takes on old-school classics and decor that’s light, airy and oh-so chic. There is no special brunch menu, but guests can enjoy breakfast or lunch treats all day, Monday through Sunday. I highly recommend the fluffy scrambled eggs cacio e pepe, rye pancakes or Parmesan polenta and vegetables, and don’t forget a side dish (or two) of crispy artichokes for the table.
