Bottomless brunch NYC: The best deals

For many New Yorkers, brunch is a sacred thing. A weekend ritual loaded with symbolism and eggs, the event helps nurse hangovers and gets friends together to rehash the week's events or perhaps what happened the night before.

And what goes better with brunch than booze? Unlimited booze, of course.

Here are some of the best bottomless brunches in the city.

This new rooftop extension of the Vida Verde, a Midtown West cocktail bar and Mexican restaurant, rolls out a South-of-the-Border-themed brunch called "Brunchacha" on the weekends.
