Brunch review: Bowery Bay


Do you enjoy waking up early to a bowl of grape nuts and no caffeine on the weekends? Yeah me neither. I’d much prefer to brunch, ideally a bottomless one. If you aren’t familiar, this isn’t some protest against pants (save that for the living room), but rather an all-you-can-day drink oasis with delicious brunch noms.

On a recent visit to Bowery Bay (Ditmars and 21st St) I was rendered full, tipsy and very happy. So your basic brunch here is reasonably priced at $16 which includes coffee/tea and one brunch drink. If you want to step into boozy brunch-land for two hours add an additional $16. My table obviously opted for the unlimited drink option. We ordered the chicken and waffles and the steak & eggs. A proper steak & eggs should be medium rare with slightly runny eggs (those eggs better run). Both were prepared to order. There are also options such as salads, a burger, and various egg dishes. Every dish out of the kitchen looked better than the last. Drinks were served promptly and generously. We couldn’t have been happier and highly recommend this spot for brunch!
