If there’s ever been a greater invention than someone putting the words bottomless and brunch together in a sentence then i wanna know about it. Being the type of basic bitch that lives for bottomless brunches, when NYL got in touch to invite me for unlimited gin, a continental breakfast buffet AND a hot meal off the menu i was there already. What a fabulous idea.
After a super busy Saturday morning (why do plans always all fall at the same time?!) i finally headed down to NYL and was more ready than ever for a delightful afternoon. If you’ve never been into NYL before then you need to. The interiors adhere to true NYC style; light and airy but with hints of gold giving it an overall appearance of grandeur and luxury. We took a seat in the booths in the main dining area and dug straight into the goodie bags that had kindly been left on our seats (full of gorgeous little treats and our very own NYL lounge mug). Perfect.
Pondering the menu was accompanied by some live music that was playing on the mezzanine of the bar. Not the kind of live music that totally intrudes on your conversation but just the right amount of buble as we sat and sipped our Liverpool Gins (rose petal for me, always).
Like most bottomless brunches, NYL allow you 90 minutes of gin or prosecco sippin’ but also allow unlimited trips to the continental buffet (er HIIII chocolate popcorn brownies, jars of nutella and gorgeous fruit platters) as well. For our hot meal, we were presented with the NYL brunch menu which has a bit of something for everyone included on it (pancakes, vegan full english, french toast, benedicts, you name it). I went for the sweet potato benedict which was essentially super crispy sweet potato fritters topped with perfectly poached eggs, ham and hollandaise – it was top notch tbh. We also went for the pancakes which were served with toppings of your choice, clotted cream and maple syrup. On top of this saw us making countless trips for more delicious brownies, cakes and breakfast pastries and so for £35 per head, NYL’s bottomless brunch really is a no-brainer for a special occasion (or even if you just fancy a lil treat).
As far as bottomless brunches in Liverpool go, this one, in my opinion is definitely up there. From the absolute interior GOALS of the venue itself to the gorgeous food and unlimited gin balloons, im already planning my next trip back. Thank you so much to NYL lounge for having me!
