Where to Celebrate National Waffle Day in NYC August 24

National Waffle Day is August 24 and falls on a Saturday this year, making it an even better reason to go out for brunch! A perfect way to celebrate the occasion is with none other than chicken and waffles, and whether you prefer them smothered in maple syrup or drizzled with hot honey, we’ve rounded up both savory and sweet variations that are sure to hit the spot.

 For a sweeter take, newly opened Union Square restaurant The Stand serves incredible Red Velvet Waffles ($14) at brunch. Served with fresh local berries from the Union Square Market and hot honey butter, the waffles are scrumptious on their own but can also be topped with juicy buttermilk fried chicken for an additional $4.
