OpenTable Named The 100 Best Brunch Spots In America

“Have you tried that new brunch spot on [insert any generic street in America]?” is something you’ll hear way more in 2016 than any other year in history. As you inch closer to thirty, brunch becomes more of a scene than actually going out at night which is why being on the forefront of the best, trendiest brunches is essential to dominating your social circle.

Luckily, OpenTable released their top brunch spots in America by compiling over 5 million reviews and weighing their brunch rating heavier than their other ratings. The results, which should surprise no one, were dominated by New York and California.

Me? I’ve only covered two of the spots — Zingerman’s in Ann Arbor and The Southern in Nashville — which means I’ve got 98 expensive-ass meals in my future. It’s truly my civic duty to dub this my official bucket list and I simply cannot sleep until I’ve sipped mimos and eaten Eggs Benny at each and every one. Fortunately, I’m going to Houston this weekend so I can knock out Brennan’s and MAX’s Wine Dive. But before then, I better do a Kickstarter campaign to fund this potentially outrageously expensive venture.

Wish me luck.
