Preface anything with ‘New York’ and it immediately sounds bigger, better and brasher. When talking about the New York Italian-style brunch at Hyatt Regency hotel's Montagu, though, the only brash thing will be your behaviour after the free-flowing prosecco – the rest of the brunch is all about the great food. The all-you-can-eat style buffet serves customisable pizza and pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, fresh salads and wedges of New York-style cheesecake every Saturday, all to the relaxed beat of a jazz band. It could be just the place if your knowledge of New York/Italian fusion only extends as far as Joey Tribbiani… – Cathy Adams
