Praised for "Bringing a dose of Mexico City chic to the East Village" by The Michelin Guide, The Black Ant is a see-and-be-seen hotspot that flawlessly blends upscale Mexican cuisine and classic breakfast dishes for one of the most talked about brunches in the city.

Grab your $35 pulse (an $82 value) for this phenomenal brunch for two, that includes 2 Entrees of your choice and 4 Margaritas, Mimosas, Bellinis, Bloody Marias, or Specialty Brunch Cocktails to share.

The authentic ingredients and traditional methods are offset by sleek contemporary Mayan decor, with stenciled tiles, hand-painted murals and black & white photos of Mexico City.

Finally, enjoy brunch inside the restaurant or outside in the garden. No matter where you eat, Black Ant provides New Yorkers with a delicious brunch and a mini-vacation from New York City...


From Chef Mario Hernandez (La Esquina) and mixologist Jorge Guzman (Ofrenda) comes New York Magazine Critic's Pick The Black Ant, a modern Mexican restaurant in the East Village. The vibe is cheerfully cool, suitable for brunch with friends or a date in the enchanting climate-controlled back garden.

The menu thrills with daring dishes such as savory favorites Duck Rancheros (sunny side-up eggs, duck confit hash, crispy corn tostada, avocado, and beans) and the decadent Black Ant Burger (lamb chuck blueberry patty, manchego cheese, pickled vegetables with a side of aji mayo spicy fries).

If you'd like something sweeter, a favorite is the Pan Con Calabaza (Brioche Pumpkin Custard Toast, Manchego Cheese, Piloncillo Syrup, allspice ice cream, candied pumpkin seeds).

Now, onto the cocktails. Take your pick from the Mimosas, Hibiscus Mimoas, Bloody Maria, or a range of traditional and flavored Margaritas. A must-try is the restaurant's renowned Smoky Jalapeño Margarita, made with house infused tequila, orange liqueur, lime, agave and smoky salt.

A note on the Margaritas - they're strong. Very strong. One per person is plenty. Two, and you are likely to start forgetting how incredible your entree was...
