Maya What do you call a prix fixe bottomless margarita brunch with unlimited small plates, including smoked brisket tacos, Mayan Benedict, and bacon-wrapped hot dogs with chipotle sauce? Answer: Some kind of heaven. Maya, 1191 1st Avenue (between East 64th and East 65th Streets), 212-585-1818. Photo: Paul Wagtouicz
What: Bloody Mary Where: Marlow & Sons "I consider myself somewhat of a Bloody Mary connoisseur. At this point, I have probably tried 100 different Bloody Marys in New York City, and the one at Marlow & Sons currently holds the top spot. It's the perfect combination of spicy and refreshing that can cure the worst hangover. Order a dozen of the out-of-this-world oysters or duck pâté and you've got the best brunch combo around."

A tide of Southern staples (fried chicken and waffles, cheddar shrimp and grits, fluffy pancake stacks) rolls out from the kitchen every Saturday and Sunday at the Bedford Avenue insta-hit. You can never have too many Bloody Marys (with or without house-cured bacon) if you remember to say please and thankyama’am.
