Jones looks like the living room in That 70’s Show combined with a multimillion-dollar Palm Springs vacation house. Everything about it is retro, from the stone fireplace to the moss-green booths, and they have one of our favorite brunches in the city. It’s full of comfort food like baked mac and cheese and matzo ball soup, but what you really want to order is the monkey bread and a Bloody Mary (or three).
