Brunchin’ In Queens: ORO

I have been living in New York City since 2014, and this past weekend I brunched in Queens for the first time.  Maybe it is because I have been living in Manhattan and this island has me spoiled rotten with endless brunch options.  Regardless, when given the chance to check out Queens with some good friends that are also foodies I jumped at the opportunity.

This past Sunday I checked out Oro, which is Spanish for GOLD.  Sounding classy already, huh? Before going to Oro I stalked their IG page, drooled over their food, and watched their promo video several times.  It was to the point my friend had to asked me if I was watching the video again and passing judgement at the same time.  Maybe it was the beautiful people having a good time, or my fav song playing in the background, or the positive energy this spot gave off.  From the video  I JUST knew I needed to experience it!

Oro has been open for almost a year and is located in Long Island City.  This establishment comfortably seats about 160 people in it, and has a spacious bar.  When you walk into Oro this is NOT the phrase you will use “This place reminds me of …”.  This space is not only unique to the neighborhood but also to the city.  This summer they recently started serving brunch on Sundays starting at 1pm.  Their brunch include bottomless for 1.5 hours and an entree for $49.  Also, during this time they have a DJ that knows EXACTLY what he is what is doing.

Outside of brunch Oro’s specialty is Italian cuisine, and peeking at their dinner menu has me ready to make reservations in the near future because of their seasonal menu. 

This is a wave you want to catch early because mark my words by July this will be one of the hottest place to brunch in NYC.  I strongly encourage reservations for dining at Oro.  Oro is a great place to get dressed up and catch up with the girls, family dinners, or just grabbing drinks at the bar.  Check out some photos from my time at Oro below!
