For many New York residents and visitors, Sunday brunch is the most anticipated meal of the week. And, with so many to choose from, you can enjoy this special meal at a different place each week.

With very descriptive names such as "Egg" and "Prune," and one named after its owner, you'll enjoy the atmosphere of the brunch spots listed here as much as you will the food.

Egg, 135 North 5th Street, Brooklyn, NY

Yep, that's its name, although its website has "pig" and "egg" in it. No matter what day you're in Brooklyn, you'll be able to enjoy the food at Egg, because the restaurant is open seven days a week.

You'll need to go early if you want to have an afternoon meal (lunch is served every day, as is breakfast) on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, because the restaurants closes at 6:00 PM after a 7:00 AM opening time. On Thursday, the restaurant closes at 10:00 PM, and on Friday, the restaurant opens at 7:00 AM and closes at 11:00 AM.

On Saturday and Sunday, you'll get to sleep in a little longer, because the restaurant doesn't open until 9:00 AM. On Saturday, closing time is 11:00 PM and on Sunday closing time is at 9:00 PM.

No matter which day you choose for your meal, bring cash, because that's all the restaurant takes. And, you'll just have to wait for a table, because they only accept dinner reservations. But, hey, it's worth carrying some "folding money" and spending a little time.

Sarabeth, 40 Central Park South, New York, NY

Brunch at this upscale restaurant will be more enjoyable because you have a choice of three rooms to choose from in which to take your meal. They are the Skylight Room, the main dining room, and the Garden Room. There is also outdoor seating available.

If you are seated in the main dining room, you'll have spectacular views of either Boxwood Garden or Central Park South. Both of them have their own beauty, so you'll not be disappointed at whichever one you're seeing.

This restaurant is best known for its brunch which is served on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM, but the restaurant also offers breakfast, lunch, tea, and dinner services. Dinner is only served during the week from 5:00 PM until 11:00 PM, so be aware of this when making your plans to visit Sarabeth.

Prune 54 East 1st Street New York, NY

Don't let the name of this restaurant turn you off, especially if you don't particularly care for this type of fruit, because it does have other offerings. On Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy brunch from 10:30 AM until 3:30 PM, after which dinner service begins at 5:30 PM. You can enjoy dinner service seven nights a week from then until the restaurant closes at 11:00 PM. Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 AM until 3:30 PM. Workers can enjoy a sit-down meal, for a much-needed break in the middle of the day.
