Alphabet City's home
Poco was built for one purpose—to be home away from home for the local residents of NYC's most unique, authentic neighborhood—Alphabet City. Our goal is to make everyone feel welcome and ensure they have a great dining and social experience.
We've had an incredible run. Over the past four years, we've been serving the neighborhood our legendary brunch and tapas style dinner. Word got out and people from faraway places like Yorkville, Hell's Kitchen and Park Slope have been venturing in for our signature dishes including the Lobster Mac and Cheese, the Mushroom Truffle Croquettes and the award winning vegan Smoked Truffle Mac & Cheese. Come and nurse your hangover or just treat yourself by grabbing a bunch of friends and celebrating life with our legendary bottomless brunch. Don’t just take our word for it, look at all the rave reviews our boozy brunch has garnered over the years.
The Spanish inspired tapas menu was created by chef Abe Lopez, winner of the Food Network’s hit show “Chopped”. The menu features a variety of tapas and entrees, expertly crafted for a delicious social dining experience.
Poco is now open for organic breakfast and lunch. In addition to your staple breakfast items, we'll also be serving the best coffee east of 1st Avenue, and nutritious juices and smoothies from Vivacity.
We hope to see you soon. Join us for one of our wildly popular trivia, comedy and craft nights. Or come by for a quick healthy start to your day, or spend a couple hours writing your business plan over a few lattes. And be sure to kick back and relax during our legendary boozy brunch.

Poco is a loud, crowded, and fun spot for party time brunch. Thirty dollars will get you an entree, plus unlimited mimosas, Bloody Marys, and sangria. You probably aren’t coming here for the food, but the Latin twists on brunch basics will get the job done. Take note: it’s cash only.
After coming to the weekend boozy brunch, I now understand why this place is on every list of best NYC boozy brunch. A group of four of us went on a Friday afternoon (major plus is that this place's weekend brunch includes Friday!) and the place was busy but not too packed. We all got mimosas, which are supposed to only be served for 1.5 hours, but I guess because it wasn't that busy they let us sit there for FOUR hours... and continued to serve us for those four hours. Our waiter (Aron? I can't remember his name after drinking countless mimosas) was super nice and accommodating. Everyone's dishes were great, though mine was only okay. Highly recommend the lobster guac and lobster Mac & cheese. Also the music was on point.
The lobster Mac and cheese is awesome! $30 for bottomless mimosa, sangria, and a few other options plus an entree. The mimosas weren't strong but still worth the $30. Great atmosphere and music.
Poco's menu is so good, it's worth the $32 for just one and a half hours of unlimited mimosas, bloody marys, and sangria. It'll be a tough decision to choose between the lobster mac, lobster grilled cheese, and French toast. Just a heads up: It's cash only.
Refinery 29 review: The Right Way To Do Bottomless Brunch In NYC
This East Village brunch institution is perfect for groups looking to get their drink on without compromising taste. With several filling and delicious options from Lobster Mac and Cheese to Guacamole Benedict, there are options for the whole crowd. This place gets pretty packed on weekends, so be sure to plan ahead.
“LET’S SEE, WHAT ELSE” AT POCO
Wednesdays at 8pm
Local comedians Tom Delgado and Missy Baker host a new batch of both rising and established comedians in this restaurant’s intimate downstairs cellar every week (there’s a bar down there, relax!) -- which means you could quite literally be rubbing elbows with reputable comics like Nick Vatterott (Comedy Central, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon) and SNL cast member Sasheer Zamata.
"Smoked Truffle Mac & Cheese
Local gourmands have spoken: Poco owner Sara Grizzle was declared the winner of the Natural Gourmet Institute’s vegan mac and cheese cook-off in October. And now New Yorkers can taste the winning recipe any night of the week at her Alphabet City restaurant. Expect a big bowl of oversized shells mixed with cashew cheese, roasted broccoli, sautéed mushrooms, and garlic spinach covered with a crunchy layer of truffled panic."
