Where: Mother’s Ruin, NYC
What: A longtime favorite of both industry folks and everyday drinkers, Mother’s Ruin has a well-deserved reputation as a spot where you always have a great time — awesome cocktails in a low-pretense but high-energy bar. So it’s a good thing Mother’s recently launched their “Everyday Brunch” — awesome gut-busting, hangover-annihilating meals every day of the week. Our recommendation? The Tri-Tip Hash: hefty chunks of marinated steak in a sizzling cast-iron skillet full of hash and a perfect poached egg atop. Hot sauce optional.
Wash it down with: If you’ve been to Mother’s, you don’t even have to ask — get the slushie of the day. (“The OG,” with tequila, lime, and grapefruit, with a sweet chile-molasses swirl, was an incredible recent favorite.)
