Brunch parties have become a preferred trend amongst Black millenials. The age of social media has impelled the brunch. NEW YORKERS ARE BUSY. Between daily commutes, work schedules, people hardly have time from breakfast. Skipping breakfast builds anticipation for an earlier lunch. Brunches are a magnet for millenials who are entrepreneurs, creatives, influencers, movers and shakers, and future business moguls. While brunch hopping the past few months I've found myself to becoming a regular at three specific places.
1) RUSTIK TAVERN (471 Dekalb Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11205)
Beautiful outdoor, seating and serene plants make your dining experience feel like home. The staff at Rustik are your second-cousins. If you have no problem sitting under trees, grape vines, or in the sun Rustik is definitely for you. If not for their amazing chicken and waffles, or french toast, than definitely for the glorious people watching and endless shared compliments! Their mimosas will have you spinning with joy down Dekalb after giving the servers and host a healthy tip!
2) WOODLANDS (242 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217)
IF cocktails and music that makes you buss a whine while you eat aren't enough, Woodlands is filled with waiters who add flare to customer service. The Brioche French Toast was a beautiful concoction of berries, syrups, and crunch! Drinks like the Henessy Brooklyn and Rum Punch are legendary for getting us up and on our feet.The lower level becomes a dance-party after brunch giving you plenty of time to sweat the alcohol out of your system!
3) TOAD STYLE (93 Ralph Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11221)
Open everyday from 11 am to 11 p.m. Toad Style is a quaint vegan restaurant in Bed-Stuy. Toad Style is 100% vegan, soy-free, non gmo, and palm-oil free. With the option to bring your own beverage the restaurant offers a chill-vibe that attracts hipsters, gentrifiers, and natives. Brunch is available daily from 11 am - 4 p.m. Their Belgian waffles made with coconut butter and real maple syrup is explosive! Try their BBQ PULLED JACKFRUIT for a tangy-spicy meal that will satisfy your cravings.
