Jack & Nellie’s is a casual American restaurant right off the main stretch of Austin Street in Forest Hills, and it’s a good place to stop for brunch. The hash browns are so good that they could turn someone into a morning person, and it doesn't hurt that the brunch cocktails are all under $10. The space is big enough that you could easily come here with a group, and (just in case the hash brown magic doesn't work on your friends) this is also a nice place for drinks and snacks during Happy Hour, which runs from 4-8pm every day.

These days, Employees Only is not the hotspot it once was. But while the crowd might have lost a step, the cocktails have not, and it’s still packed with people every time we stop by.
