If you haven’t noticed, we’ve been covering some serious brunch ground lately (shoutout to @buffalobrunch!). So we thought we’d round up some of our fave recommendations from the past few months for you and your crew to try as. soon. as. humanly. possible.

The following is a list of relatively new brunches on the scene that deserve your attention for their hangover-curing, groan-inducing, pick-my-mouth-up-off-the-damn-floor-delicious ~eats~ and ~dranks~. Needless to say, these guys got game. Happy Sunday Funday to all and to all a good day-drink!

 

 

Carte Blanche Brunch

Carte Blanche

Neighborhood: Hamburg  /  61 Buffalo St, Hamburg, NY 14075

Brunch is served Sunday only

“Ever since Carte Blanche opened in June 2016, you know that Murtha has certainly refined himself as a farm-to-table chef in our community and has put Carte Blanche and Hamburg on the map as a go-to upscale dining destination. I was so pleased with a dinner I had here in August and couldn’t wait to get back, so when they announced the start of Sunday brunch, I finally had the perfect excuse to squeeze this baby back on my calendar. Call it brunchers intuition, but I was right on. Carte Blanche’s brunch was everything I wanted it to be and more, starting with The Plataeu and ending with the Waygu Benedict.”

Thin Man

Neighborhood: Elmwood Village  /  490 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222

Brunch is served Sunday only

Thin Man is a beer and meat lover’s fantasyland. Not only does Brewer Rudy Watkins concoct their own list of delicious brews, there are always rotating taps of carefully-selected beers from around the country and beyond. Then you have, *drum roll*, platters of house-cured meats and various other carnivorous menu options, perfect for pairing with beer. Their brunch? An offering of traditional brunch dishes (think: hash, french toast, breakfast sammy) with the option to begin your meal with something from the regular menu (think: cheese platter, charcuterie, mussel pot). It leaves you begging the question, what more could you and your brunch crew want?”

Lait Cru Brasserie Breakfast Sandwich

Lait Cru Brasserie

Neighborhood: West Side

346 Connecticut Street, Buffalo, NY 14213

Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday

“Lait Cru Brasserie set up shop in a space that provided some pretty big shoes to fill. But then again, Jill Gedra Forster had done it all before. This French-inspired restaurant in the Horsefeathers Building on the west side not only offered a great transition from what had been there previously (Martin Cooks), but a whole new concept that has become a destination for foodies in our beloved WNY. Whether you want a breakfast sandwich on a Tuesday morning, a wine pairing dinner on Thursday night, or a chic Sunday brunch, Lait Cru will be a mainstay on your restaurant list.”

Roost

Neighborhood: West Side

1502 Niagara St, Buffalo, NY 14213

Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday

“Walking into Roost, you might doubt that you’re in Buffalo, or on Niagara Street. You’re reminded of the raw beauty of our post-industrial city and, seriously, how f*%^ing cool Buffalo is becoming through these developments in areas that were abandoned for years. Your fellow bougies are already sitting at their tables getting day drunk, and the servers and cooks are hustling around like our badass restaurant folk do in this city of movers and shakers. All that is reason alone to visit Roost. And then there’s the food…. and the brunch.”

Dapper Goose

Neighborhood: Black Rock  /  491 Amherst Street, Buffalo, NY 14207

Brunch is served Sunday only

“The Dapper Goose brunch experience is on a level that not many Buffalo restaurants have executed yet, and a fantastic example of what a delicious farm-to-table dinner spot is capable of during the most important meal of the week – brunch. Think Thai Michelada, Dipping Eggs, and a Pork Loin Sandwich. YUM!”
