Located in Stuyvesant Town, Vamos is a Mexican restaurant on 1st Avenue, which offers a fun, boozy brunch experience. If you buy 5 brunch drinks (Margaritas or Sangria @ $6 a piece = $30) you get your brunch entrée for free. So it’s kinda like boozy brunch in reverse.
Vamos by far one of the liveliest, unpretentious and energetic brunches I’ve been to in a while. The DJ was fantastic, spinning a wide-range of music from the 90’s to today’s “trap music”. You’ve been warned, the restaurant gets very loud! So this is not the ideal brunch if you’re trying to catch up with girlfriends and have serious conversation. On the other hand, this is the perfect brunch to party, drink and just have a good time.
Overall, when it comes to the food, your best options are to stick with the sandwiches (i.e. Chicken & Steak Sandwich), which are ample portions and tastier than some of the Mexican inspired brunch dishes. In addition to the sandwiches, my table enjoyed the made to order guacamole, which was fresh, creamy and well-seasoned. Since the food is average, this is the type of boozy brunch where the DJ and booze is the main purpose for going but nevertheless a very affordable and fun brunch to try.
