Can I just say, OMG. I've never had so much fun before so early on a Sunday Morning!!!!! I gotta be honest, I was totally skeptical about this place, and I had no idea what to expect. I couldn't understand why a brunch place could be so booked up in advance... I was proven wrong 2.5 minutes after I walked in the doors. From the outside it's hard to find because the sign isn't facing the street, but once I heard the loud pulsating music at 11am.. I knew we were in the right spot! It was a group of 8, 6 girls, and 2 BF's. We had to sit in the waiting room for our table. Let me say, the most crackin' waiting area EVER. We started off with our bottomless mimosas right then and there, in both orange & pomegranate. People were dancing in the area, talking, laughing, mingling. You cant help but be swept up in the happiness that is brought out by mimosas! We waited maybe 45 minutes for our table, but it was a quick 45 minutes. Once we got past the crowded waiting area we realized the rest of the place was poppin' too! We sat at a booth, right next to the DJ and close to the restroom. I can't believe they have a DJ set up that early in the day for BRUNCH. Craziness, but it all works!!! Our waitress, was AMAZING. She was super nice, super patient with us, and kept our mimosa's full! We got a plate of biscuits to start. OMG, soft, warm, fluffy.. fresh.. SO GOOD. It came with butter, berry jam and marmalade. Great way to start the meal! We all ordered food, a majority of the table got the frittatas (YUM!!), one person got the eggs benedict (I heard it was GREAT), my BF got the steak and Eggs, and I got the French toast. The steak & eggs, were DELICIOUS. They came with a side of chimichurri, WOW. That sauce was so good, and really put an OOMPH on that steak. It also came with country fried potatoes.. By far, one of the best potatoes I've ever had in any restaurant. So savory and delicious! My Cinnamon French Toast was OH SO GOOD too. Fluffy with the right amount of sweetness. MMM MMMM. I love me some French toast! After we ate, we hung out a bit and kept the mimosa's coming. Our waitress was so sweet, and nice! She really was GREAT. The atmosphere was non-stop partying. People dancing in line for the restroom, dancing next to their tables, doing run way shows down the narrow areas.. OMG, you couldn't be there and NOT have fun. (unless you passed out from the mimosas). The line for the restroom is a bit absurd, I mean, you're really going to give us bottomless mimosas and only have TWO restrooms?! That's cruel and unusual punishment right there! Anyway, the music was super loud, totally club like atmosphere, but awesome music!!!!!! Maybe it was the mimosas, but everyone sang with every song. Mixture of house, old school hip hop, current hiphop, even freakin Miley Cyrus, and it was still an awesome time! Anyway, I wish I could rate this place more than 5 stars.. I've never had so much fun eating brunch before, and I seriously can't wait till we go back!

Really too old for dance clubs but was curious. Tenjune had a line down the block and this one had no line and no cover, so we ventured in. The guys at the door were super nice but. . .then we had to have our bags searched. . . and then the woman inside told us to stand with our arms and legs apart so she could pat us down or go over us with a metal detecting baton or something. Thats when I looked at my friend and said "this may be too much for me". They were very gracious about us leaving. Was there recently a shootout here or something?

Marquee is one of the worst night clubs in New York. Or anywhere for that matter. The doormen are rude and highly aggressive. The music is plain vanilla and boring. Even with bottle service and a table, the staff is rude and not very accommodating. I am not sure how they will survive the impending recession.
