Okay it’s official, we’ve found the prettiest brunch location in New York City.

While We Were Young is a pastel lover’s dream. It’s all pink velvet, white walls, beautiful blues, soft florals and marble table tops. It’s also home to a great brunch menu offering starters, mains and sides (oh brunch, how far you’ve come) and an array of cocktails.

(Side note: the boozy brunch is WAY bigger in the States than it is in Australia.)

We enjoyed;

  • the grilled octopus with brussels, purple potatoes, roasted sunchokes, spiced beet puree, and pumpkin seeds
  • the burrata with candied peaches, sour cherries, and toasted hazelnuts
  • the roasted squash with butternut squash, house made ricotta, roasted almonds and honey
  • the avocado toast with smashed avocado, heirloom tomatoes, radish, poached farm fresh eggs, and pumpkin seeds
  • the ricotta gnocchi with roasted butternut squash, sage, brown butter, and pecorino romano
  • cocktails
