Bites of the Best
Villa Cemita, Alphabet City, NYC
If you’re looking for an unusual place for brunch in the city, I suggest heading to Alphabet City for the bottomless brunch at Villa Cemita. There’s a $29 unlimited cocktails (mimosa, white or red sangria or margaritas) for 1.5 hours or $39 for 2 hours including food.
I was invited as their guest and sampled all their cocktails, preferring the blood orange mimosa, and some of the Mexican cuisine with a nod to the Puebla area where the chef/owner Alejandra Aco is from. This is a colorful modern restaurants with paintings by graffiti artist Flore (Christopher Florentino) reflecting the culture and history of the East Village, the family, the restaurant and the owners’ background.
