There is no way a brunch can go wrong. A few of your classic brunch dishes and a few glasses of your favorite drink always hits the right notes. But, if it’s your first time at Sesamo, we have a few recommendations that will keep you coming back for more.

Hold your breath for the champion of all brunches - French toast. It involves a fairly simple recipe that requires precision and our chefs have mastered it over the years. It’s a simple bread and egg recipe but we have managed to make it extra special. Our french toast can easily pass as one of the best ones in NYC. But, you can decide for yourself. Along with a crispy, golden outer layer, you get the added sweet flavor of apple jam, a hint of savoriness of brown butter and a generous drizzle of honey syrup.

A brunch menu without carbonara is incomplete. The culinary team at Sesamo brings you a wonderful rendition of the classic carbonara. Along with a creamy, rich sauce, you get the strong flavor of smoked and cured mackerel with every bite. And if that’s not enough, you can also get yourself a side of eggs cooked just the way you like it. A hearty meal that fills your heart and your bellies. We can help you pair this with just the right wine to make the overall experience even better for you.

A brunch menu is not about experimentation.It’s about presenting the classic dishes and enhancing the experience while keeping the familiarity intact. Our eggs benedict fit this definition perfectly. Along with keeping its basic flavor alive, our chefs use certain surprise elements to make it better. Give in to the perfectly toasted English muffins that are topped with flawlessly poached eggs and a beautifully cut slice of Norwegian smoked salmon or Canadian bacon (whichever option suits you best). And let’s not forget the incredibly rich Hollandaise sauce that brings it all together.

Begin your brunch talks by clinking your glasses of Mimosa at Sesamo because no brunch is complete without it. Our customers love it and with good reason. Our mimosas are made with just two simple ingredients - fresh orange juice and sparkling wine. And we bet you will love it. Because unlike the watered down versions you may have had before, we put in the effort to make it perfect. From squeezing an orange to it’s last drop to meticulously following a set ratio for ideal sweet-tart balance, it is a delight you don’t want to miss. This perfect combination is what makes even your basic eggs and bacon celebratory.

If your idea of brunch is good food and vodka, a glass of Bloody Mary will never disappoint. This famous brunch cocktail has everything you need to destress and detox from a week of complete exhaustion. From the sweet-citrusy flavor of tomato juice and lemon, the spiciness of Worcestershire sauce to the zing of wasabi and ginger, it’s a perfect pick-me-up drink. Since the main ingredients of bloody mary are tomato juice and vodka, it is nourishing but also perfect for lazy afternoon brunches. Every place has a different recipe, but when you are at Sesamo, you’ll get why we are called the best brunch restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen.
