As a foodie, I'm supposed to hate the concept of brunch and the inanity of "brunch food." Yet every weekend, I find myself at a new or tried and true brunch spot. I suppose it's hard to avoid in this city. Even normally great and exciting restaurants churn out brunch menus, because that's just the thing to do on weekends. (And let's face it - I'm never up early enough on the weekends to consume breakfast and lunch separately.) Some places do a great job of having at least some "lunchy" foods on the brunch menu (like Back Forty and Bowery Diner). And of course, dim sum is always an alternative!
I rounded up some iPhone photos of brunch in the past month or so (well, a breakfast from Buvette snuck in there). Some places I really enjoy didn't make the cut, as the natural light in those places is bust. They are worth checking out though - Saxon & Parole and Brindle Room.

There you have it - I hope this will serve as a little informal brunch guide for any of you visiting NYC. Happy brunching!
