No Fee New Luxury Rentals | Offering up to 2 Months Free*

Back to Blog

With the sun-drenched living spaces, contemporary design, stunning panoramic views, and waterfront parks at your doorstep, your Gotham Point luxury rental is more than just a home, it’s a lifestyle. And every LIC lifestyle definitely includes brunch, that indulgent mid-morning (or later) mashup of a meal that has become one of our city’s quintessential culinary offerings. Read on for our top picks in the neighborhood. 

Sweet Chick
46-42 Vernon Blvd, Queens, Long Island City, NY 11101
(718) 433-4064

“Have fun, eat well & spread love,” is the motto at Sweet Chick and we couldn’t agree more. Their southern comfort-food favorites have become so popular since they opened their first location in Williamsburg in 2013 that they’ve really spread their wings (see what we did there?) and expanded to four additional locations, including one right here in LIC. Buttermilk biscuits, shrimp and grits, housemade lemonade, and some awesome craft cocktails are just more reasons to get out of bed. 

Cafe Henri
1010 50th Ave, Queens, NY 11101
(718) 729-5794

Cozy and bright, Cafe Henri offers an escape to Paris in the heart of LIC. Known for generous portions and reasonable prices, this quaint cafe is sure to become a go-to spot for any Gotham Point resident. Conveniently located just a few blocks away from Gotham Point, enjoy a post-meal stroll in Hunters Point South Park once you’ve had your fill of crepes, croque monsieurs, cocktails, and coffee.

Jackson’s Eatery
10-37 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101
(347) 649-1721

This LIC establishment focuses on serving farm fresh, seasonally inspired American fare and local beers. Their extensive weekend brunch menu has all the classics with an elevated, Southern twist, plus creative cocktails and plenty of options for sides. With indoor and outdoor seating, it’s a great place for weekend eats no matter the weather or season. 

American Brass
2-01 50th Ave, Queens, NY 11101
(718) 806-1106

If you want to do brunch with a bang (and some bling and bubbles, too) American Brass is the place to go. Proud to be one of the few farm-to-table restaurants in LIC, this upscale yet inviting space features a seasonally rotating menu, an expansive indoor dining area, and a private patio. Located just a few blocks from Gotham Point on the waterfront, it’s a resident favorite for any special occasion.
