Instagram-Worthy Brunch

Hotel brunch spots rarely have as much style and personality as Cunningham Restaurant Group’s recent addition to the steampunk-chic Ironworks Hotel on 86th Street. Chalk that up to chef Natalie Wall’s vibrant menu of hearty salads, breakfast bowls, and pastries, such as her plate-sized cinnamon roll and her not-to-be-missed take on a classic Pop Tart with a banana cinnamon filling. Less decadent options include a fruit-topped chia seed pudding bowl and Rize toasts dressed with everything from smoked salmon to figs and brie. Wall’s innovation shines in a revisionist quiche “egg tart” with seasonal roasted vegetables, pickled onions, and bracing hibiscus mustard. And her house burger on an English muffin and chicken-and-bacon croissant make stopping in late a good option. Brunch daily.
