Whether you're a native New Yorker or just recently moved here from another city, state, or country, there's one time-tested tradition that every New Yorker knows all too well: brunch. It is the quintessential New York City weekend extravaganza.
Hence, the wildly successful and sold-out interactive food experience 'Make Pizza Drink Wine' (now in two locations across Brooklyn and Manhattan) has officially spawned its very own weekend brunch rendition in Queens, 'Make Pizza Drink Bubbly: Long Island City'.
For two hours, you’ll leave your inhibitions at the door and become a downright integral part of this culinary adventure. That’s right, if you’re totally over sitting down at another overcrowded weekend brunch spot and simply stuffing your face (and tummy!) with mediocre egg dishes and watered down Bloody Marys, listen up-- because this is not just another boozy brunch. This is way more than that. It’s an artisanal food experience in a hip, industrial hotel setting, unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard about before.
The wildly successful and weekly sold-out interactive food experience 'Make Pizza Drink Wine' has officially spawned its very own two-hour weekend brunch rendition in Queens, 'Make Pizza Drink Bubbly: Long Island City'.
So how about rolling up your sleeves and learning how to make a Neapolitan pie from scratch-- practically however your lil’ heart desires, with as many toppings as you can imagine-- and then devouring your very own creation after it's tossed in the oven?!
*Please note: If your group is 10 people or more (birthday and bachelorette parties are welcome!), please contact email@example.com to discuss setting up a private event.*
All the while, you sip on bottomless mimosas or Prosecco and get served two amazing appetizers like homemade breakfast fries, fresh garlic bread with house made ricotta, or even meatballs topped with freshly grated Pecorino Romano cheese. Oh, and to top it all off, what better way to finish off this bottomless brunch than with a deliciously divine Nutella bread pudding? (We know. We had you at Nutella. SAME.)
WHEN: Saturdays and Sundays in June, 3 PM to 5 PM; Purchase Tickets HERE
Easily accessible from the N W and 7 subway lines, this brand spankin’ new, hip Italian-American hotel restaurant opened in the lobby of Long Island City’s trendy Boro Hotel in April 2018, and it has made quite the name for itself ever since then.
After tossing your customized neo-Neapolitan pie (toppings like sausage, mushrooms, or pepperoni, anyone?) into their cherry red, gas-fired Forni oven, you’ll be able to enjoy their private courtyard patio.
Named in Vogue’s best of restaurant list (not once, but twice) and CNN for New York City’s best new pizza restaurants, alongside write-ups in Eater NY and Edible Queens, and there’s one thing that’s for certain: throw every preconceived notion of boring, bland hotel food right out the window when you step foot into this contemporary, floor-to-ceiling windowed establishment.
Best part of the entire ‘Make Pizza Drink Bubbly’ experience you’ll have here? After you toss your very own customized neo-Neapolitan pie (unlimited toppings like sausage, mushrooms, or pepperoni, anyone?!) into their custom-built cherry red, gas-fired Forni oven (with help, of course, from acclaimed in-house pizzaiolo Pascual Gonzalez), you’ll be able to enjoy their private courtyard and super intimate views of Manhattan’s skyline.
To start off your brunch, you’ll share two different appetizer plates, like meatballs topped with fresh tomatoes & grated cheese and thin, homemade breakfast fries topped with a fried egg, while sipping on bottomless mimosas or Prosecco. And the icing on the proverbial cake here, you may be asking yourself? Nutella. Bread. Pudding. ‘Nuff said.
Now get your tickets here and we'll see you in June at LIC's newest hotel restaurant, Beebe's!
