In the boutique hotel, J House, Tony's, an Italian steakhouse and bar, is notoriously known for its lively ambiance, excellent food, and kind service.

Now that we've tackled appearances let's discuss their infamous Sunday brunch! First and foremost, bottomless mimosas, bloody marys, and bellinis are $25 for two hours.
If you want to veer from the bottomless menu, pineapple, raspberry, or strawberry mojitos are also an option for $12 a piece. Tony's offers many brunch choices; if you are craving seafood, look no further; fresh oysters on the shell, lobster benedict, seafood cocktail, and smoked salmon on a bagel are all on the menu. Additionally, there is a more traditional set of brunch options such as french toast, waffles, and "Tony's Favorite," which comes with eggs, bacon, potato pancakes, and a lightly toasted English muffin.

South Bay combines intimate seating with a lively bar for the perfect weekend brunch spot, especially if you and your friends have tons of catching up to do.

Quartiere, which translates to “neighborhood” in Italian, aims to provide its customers with a friendly atmosphere and intimate meal. Earlier this year, Quartiere set out to make their restaurant 21+ to ensure customers had a fun “date night” rather than a “play date.” Aside from their dinner, their bottomless brunch strives to provide a similar feel to the dining
experience they offer. Food-wise, Quartiere makes pizza dough with flour imported from Italy and fresh pasta made daily from their scratch kitchen. Therefore, the brunch pizza, made with vodka sauce, an over-easy egg, pancetta, crispy potato, and sriracha sauce, is a must try, as is their vodka for breakfast dish, made with vodka rigatoni, crumbled sausage, and pancetta crumbles. Drink-wise, Quartiere’s bottomless deal is $18 for two hours with bellinis, mimosas, or bloody marys. Suppose you are not in the mood for an alcoholic drink. In that case, a fabulous mocktail selection featuring refreshing beverages such as “the flirt,” made with raspberries, orange juice, ginger beer, soda, grapefruit juice, and pineapple juice.
