Unless you’re up early, it’s usually too humid to eat brunch outside. But when that rare weekend morning comes when you can sit on a patio without worrying about melting, head to Einstein’s in Midtown. This place has one the best brunch menus in the city, with everything from bourbon and banana french toast to manchego fritters. They have a Bloody Mary bar too, if you feel like starting the day on a boozy note while you’re reminded what a breeze feels like.
