Rick's Cabaret Strip Club Spices Up Brunch
MIDTOWN — It's a brunch with a view.
Rick's Cabaret, the notorious strip club steakhouse in Midtown, has caved to demand from customers who want exotic dancers on a Sunday morning.
The steamy spot will now serve a cover-free brunch on weekends.
“For many years we opened at 4 p.m. on the weekends, but our customers have asked us to get things going earlier, so we are granting them their wish,” said Ken Sistrunk, general manager of the three-story club at 50 W. 33rd St.
Rick's has a legion of clubs around the country, though its Midtown location is currently the only one offering a brunch special.
The $15 prix fixe menu from the club's surprisingly well-rated kitchen includes brunch standards like eggs benedict, whole wheat pancakes, croque monsieur and a variety of salads — all served up by busty waitresses.
There's also a few lunch items on the menu, including hamburgers and mac n' cheese.
In case you're looking for something a little healthier, there's granola, yogurt and fresh fruit on the menu.
The price also includes a cocktail, with Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Mojitos among the offerings.
“Not only will the food be great because it is prepared in our Zagat-rated kitchen, but the view during the brunch will be the best in New York City with our dozens of gorgeous entertainers strutting their stuff,” Sistrunk said.
The brunch launched this past weekend to a large collection of longtime loyal customers, according to a spokesman.
A performer who goes by the name Gianna said most customers enjoyed the food and, after a number of mimosas, everyone was getting into the swing.
"You would never know it was actually daytime outside," she said.
