You could say I am a little obsessed with Agave (if you haven't already seen my post on their Happy Hour deals, definitely check it out!). Their boozy brunch is one of the best in the city. For $27, the restaurant gives you the option of one brunch entree of your choice and bottomless mimosas, margaritas and wine. Not only does this restaurant seat you quickly, but their service is always pleasant, which is especially impressive considering how busy their servers are during the brunch hours. With quick refills and yummy good, Agave gets my seal of approval every time.

Essex does a $25 brunch special that includes an entree and 3 cocktails (mimosas, screwdrivers, blood marys). However, they don't seem to keep track of how many drinks you've had and it ends up being unlimited cocktails. The food is fairly good, and there is a good range to choose from, including a vegan mexican matzo brei and veggie burger. The space has an energetic and vibrant vibe.

Is it tough to get reservations here? Just curious if this is really popular / you end waiting around half an hour to get a table when it's packed.

I've never had any issues with reservations or getting a table here, but I normally try to show up pretty early for brunch. Hope that helps!

This place is great if your looking for a Boozy Party Brunch in the Meatpacking District. Get dressed up and ready to shell out some cash. Just remember it's not about the food, it's about the scene if your into that sort of thing.

My newest discovery and obsession for boozy brunch is La Flaca on the LES. Not nearly as busy as other brunch places, La Flaca is a restaurant that takes quality and efficiency to the next level. From 12pm-4pm every day of the week, La Flaca offers an entree and unlimited frozen margaritas, Bloody Marys, mimosas, sangria and La Flaca Amber Ale for two hours for a total of $22. Let me just say that the Huevos Rancheros paired with a frozen margarita in the afternoon is a perfect combination. Plus, La Flaca often plays New York sports on their flat screen TV, so you can drink and root for the Mets at the same time.
