HANDCRAFT KITCHEN & COCKTAILS in Gramercy for a Bottomless Brunch to Relish

HANDCRAFT KITCHEN & COCKTAILS in Gramercy for a Bottomless Brunch to Relish

Weekender alert! There's a bottomless brunch in the heart of the Gramercy neighborhood that will become one of your favorites. HandCraft Kitchen & Cocktails offers an elevated menu of American comfort food and a top-notch beverage program in a welcoming bistro setting.

We stopped by on a Sunday around noon. The restaurant was in full swing and was hosting a private party, but the service was excellent. Brunchers can choose from classics like omelets, steak and eggs or sandwiches but we indulged in some specialties of the house. The "Stacked French Toast" is a one of a kind dish that has the ideal blend of sweet and savory with bacon, egg, cheese and home fries in between French toast and served with a side of tater tots. The El Jefe Burrito is Handcraft's special twist on a breakfast burrito with a combination of black beans, bacon, sausage, tater tots, pico de gallo and scrambled eggs, wrapped in a flour tortilla with guacamole. There's something for everyone on the menu that includes items for people with dietary restrictions or preferences.

While portions are generous, there's also the option for starters that make nice table shares like Chicken Wings, Deviled Eggs, or Kale Salad and sides that include Seasonal Fruit, Sausage, Bacon or Home Fries.

For only $20 additional, you can add the "bottomless option" to your brunch for two hours. It's a perfect opportunity to relax with your friends and catch up on the week's events. Choose from their "Brunch Punch," a refreshing blend of fresh squeezed citrus, gin, and fizz, Mimosas, Bellinis or select draft beers.

You'll be impressed by Handcraft's beverage menu. When we were there draft beer selections included Montauk Wave Chaser IPA, Handcraft Pilsner, Fulton Lager, and Abita Turbodog Pale Ale. Original cocktails include drinks like their "Smoking Jacket #2 with mescal, Campari, and jalapeno cinnamon honey syrup or their "Berry Lemonade" with Smirnoff Vodka or tequila, black and blueberry shrub, and lemonade. A nice selection of wines by the glass and bottle are also available.
