Two Long Island restaurants have broken the mold, and are bringing brunch to Long Island. Ruvo (in Port Jefferson & Greenlawn) and La Tavola (in Sayville) are leading the way offering urban style brunches right here in our favorite Long Island suburbs.

With menu items like La Tavola’s rich “Over Night French Toast” made with bourbon bananas, strawberries, and bacon to the more traditional items like eggs Florentine.  Added ingredients give each meal an explosion of flavors, making even the most basic and traditional brunch items seem uniquely decadent. Each of the ingredients used is local and always fresh, making each bite even more delectable then the next.

Some say the best part about brunch is not the food, but rather the fact that it is considered completely acceptable to have a few cocktails PJ+Summer+Coctail-160x120before noon, and is even encouraged as part of the brunch experience. At La Tavola not only will you be dining on the finest foods, but for only $14.95 guests are able to indulge in unlimited mimosas, bloody marys, and screwdrivers with their meal, so if the food is not the selling point for you, certainly the cocktails will be.

Ruvo Restaurants may only offer their brunch menu on Sunday’s, however their menu is offered until 3pm and includes a complimentary cocktail, a basket of breads and bagels, and an array of everyone’s favorites side dishes, bacon and hash browns all for the low, unbeatable price of $13.95.

You will not leave hungry, unlike many of the brunch spots in NYC, here at La Tavola and Ruvo Restaurants, portions sizes are generous, but will not break the bank. Rest assured knowing when you leave it will be with a full stomach as well as a full wallet to match.

Although the city is one of kind, brunch on Long Island is equally as fun, more convenient, far less pricey, and the local towns of Port Jefferson and Sayville where these restaurants reside offer a charming, and relaxing environment perfect for a stress free weekend with family and friends.
