Brunch, perhaps, is created for the fashionably late. It borders between the morning after a Saturday hangover and the lazy Sunday's afternoon engagement, thus creating a laidback social event in the middle of the day. It’s the perfect excuse to combine the sweet and savory, a romanticized meal that we fashion girls take very seriously (as we’ve learned from Gossip Girl). More than the food, the ambience helps build the said vibe. That said, go get your girls and plan your date in these ultra chic restaurants perfect for brunch.
