Brunch with cheap drinks

I'm looking for a good, reasonably priced (under $20) brunch place that either includes a drink with brunch or has good brunch drink specials. I've had a tough week, and need to indulge in some good brunch food and good bloody marys without spending too much. Open to suggestions just about anywhere in Manhattan.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Roberto Passon offers unlimited drinks for $8. Brunch items are $7-$10. See menu at I would reserve via since the place is packed ( and noisy) for Sunday brunch.

    Roberto Passon
    741 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10019

    1. Go to Absinthe Wine Bar...for $20, you get a brunch entree and THREE alcholic drinks.

        1. Atlantic Grill, UES, or Ocean Grill, UWS...very reasonably priced brunch dishes, well within your budget, that include a good drink.

          1. Calle Ocho, Nero and Double Crown are all-you-can-drink and under $20.

              calle ocho is sangria only though (well, sangria all you can drink only). But, DEFINITELY WORTH IT. You will never spend more than 20 bux including tax and tip. make resies though

                Double Crown: Brunch w/AYCD is $32. Definitely not under $20!

                Nero: Prix fixe brunch w/ONE drink is $25. Definitely not under $20!

                OTOH, places like the Cow/Bondi Road, Bonelick Park, Film Center Cafe, etc. DO have tasty brunches with AYCD for under $20.

                  I just saw the ad for Double Crown's brunch last week and I could've sworn it was only $20, but I could be wrong. As for Nero, the price might have gone up, but did they also eliminate AYCD? I have never been there for brunch with just one drink.

                    Nah, Im pretty sure theyre still AYCD....$25
