In the past month, we have been going to Brooklyn for brunch. There is something and fun and different to get in our car, drive to a different borough, and eat where we are not going to know a single person. Recently, we ended up at Sunday in Brooklyn, on a SUNDAY in BROOKLYN (very meta). It was after I researched where “the best pancakes are served in NYC,” and this was at the top of every list I came across.
I highly recommend trying Sunday in Brooklyn, although I would have (a) a reservation or (b) come very early. It is definitely a hip and popular hipster restaurant, so if not early, be prepared to wait. That said, even with our long wait, it was worth it — pancakes are fluffy and to die for.
