River Styx (Greenpoint)
All the menus at this nearly waterfront restaurant in Greenpoint change on a daily basis, with some steady staples. The oven-fired cinnamon roll here is a molten caramel (and raisin-free) must-try. Order it to share as a brunch dessert — and keep in mind it will take a while to cool down. The nachos, whether as a shared appetizer or as an unconventional brunch entree, come with house-made queso, shredded braised chicken and a pile of cilantro on top. The Bloody Marys here have a distinct south-of-the border seasoning, and the Styx mimosa, with a spritz of grapefruit and touch of cinnamon, is a great twist on the classic brunch drink.
