If you’re looking for a drinking deal in the West Village, Sotto 13 probably has you covered. It’s a solid option for big groups and birthdays, and it will never disappoint for boozy brunch - it isn’t exactly “bottomless,” but you and a friend can get a carafe of mimosas, Bloody Marys, or a bottle of prosecco for $35 (which includes the cost of your meal). And the family-style food happens to be really good – the lasagna with a sunny side up egg is a favorite. Another pretty great deal here: their happy hour. You’re not going to hear us complain about getting pizza and multiple drinks for less than $20.
