Brunch: the very word conjures up images of mornings slept in, leisurely quality time with the Sunday paper, perhaps a workout on an empty stomach before meeting friends to share the week’s highlights, with good feelings accented by a Bloody Mary or glass or two of Champagne. This blend of breakfast and lunch, with the corresponding choice of entrees ranging from yogurt to steak, is denoted by the marriage of the two words themselves. The hybrid result is what etymologists call a portmanteau word, like ‘smog’ combining ‘smoke’ and ‘fog,’ but a lot tastier.

We’ve scouted the U.S. for the best brunch spots from the Hawaiian Islands to Manhattan Island, so you can enjoy this most versatile and decadent meal. So check out our selections of the best brunch restaurants near you this weekend. We’ve even got wine suggestions for proper pairing. Cheers!
