For those who live in New York City, brunch is nothing new but for people traveling, it can be a great way to feel like a local.
When it comes to neighborhoods with boozy brunches, Meatpacking wears the crown. If you make a reservation at Brasserie Beaumarchais, be prepared for champagne, dancing and revelry.
If you're looking for a typical brunch experience, come on the earlier side when the restaurant is still crowded but with an older, more sophisticated crowd. Around 2 or 3pm, the staff closes all the windows and within an instant, the formerly sunny restaurant transforms into a darkly lit nightclub.
It's a great place for parties but the bill does add up so if you're on a budget, maybe just stop by for a drink and stay for the dancing.
