Brunch is serious business in most major cities — and everywhere, come to think of it. After all, who doesn’t want to celebrate the weekend with a midday cocktail and sweet and savory eats? Brunch also brings out folks in large numbers, especially if you’re popular like @TroyPayne. Did you know you can find tables for up to 20 people on OpenTable? You can! For breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner — any meal. You can find availability for large groups through a basic search, or you can also consult your local Diners’ Choice listing for Good for Groups. Thanks for the shoutout, @TroyPayne. Enjoy what we hope is an epic brunch!
We cannot believe it either, but the unofficial last weekend of summer is here. As bummed as we are to start bidding a fond farewell to all the best things about summer (Adieu, heirloom tomatoes!), we’re excited for the weekend — and three days to brunch out! It’s one our favorite meals of the days because, hello, cocktails plus yummy breakfast foods? Yes, please.
You can find Great for Brunch suggestions on your local Diners’ Choice lists, or to search out the best of the best, take a gander at the 2013 Diners’ Choice Award winners for Top 100 Best Brunch Restaurants in the United States.
Happy brunching, and have a happy Labor Day weekend!
The bad news for those of you who may not be good with dates? Mother’s Day is just two days away. The good news? There are still plenty of open tables at amazing restaurants. Brunch, lunch, and dinner, await your lovely mother. Thanks to @kinecta for spreading the word that it’s never to late to find the right reservation to celebrate Mother’s Day!
