Although this site is a work in progress, there is work being done! Many thanks are owed to Trevor Sloat, a local grad student with a passion for brunching that only kindred spirits share. After stumbling on this site, he took it upon himself to contact us about contributing his own vast knowledge of brunch on the western front (read: Nassau!) and naturally, we were more than happy to add some of his hometown, off the eastern Island-radar favorites to the Long Island Brunch Project.
Thanks to him, we’ve now got Long Beach gems like Billy’s Beach Cafe, Brixx & Barley, The Cabana, Whale’s Tale, and Jetty on the Nassau list (among others), plus Lynbrook’s McQuade’s Neighborhood Grill, Fisherman’s Catch in Point Lookout, and details on the lowest key, unexpected brunch in Bay Shore, at Kumo’s.
“There’s nothing like a bottomless brunch in my hometown of Long Beach, so I wanted to share some of my southern Nassau knowledge.”
He’d been thinking about putting together a resource like this, and being that great (and hungry) minds think alike, we’re looking forward to collaborating with him as he lends his boozy brunch expertise to the Project.
Trevor has put on the record: “I’m an avid brunch goer … [it’s] a great way for me and my friends to have a great time, enjoy some drinks while budgeting, and getting the best ‘bang for your buck.’ I’ve essentially replaced my Saturday nights for Sunday [afternoons], and brunching for football Sundays or beautiful summer days is definitely the preferred option for my whole group now!”
Clearly, brunch is a meal for everyone, and with Trevor’s help, the Long Island Brunch Project is about to expand your options even more.
