Brunch News: Nyan Cat Takes Over Yo! Brunch at Yotel, New Menus at The Stand and Le Philosophe

Just in time for the weekend, we've got some brunch news for you! First off, if you're still using the "Nyan Cat" song as your ringtone (what?! It's catchy!), you'll need to check out this Sunday's Yo! Brunch at Yotel in Midtown from 12-7 p.m. As part of a weekend-long #NYANCATCITY festival, the brunch will celebrate the beloved cartoon cat meme with music by DJs Andrew Andrew, a Nyan Cat x Sphero game room and a "Nyan Cat-inspired" menu (we're guessing it involves rainbow-colored dishes). $40 gets you two hours of all the food, booze and Japanese pop music you can handle (570 Tenth Ave.).

Meanwhile, two spots downtown are launching brunch menus tomorrow. Over at The Stand, a comedy club and restaurant in Gramercy, chef Seth Levine has created an extensive menu of unique twists on brunch classics, like red velvet waffles, cookie dough pancakes and "breakfast tots" - tater tots topped with eggs, crumbled bacon and melted cheddar cheese (239 Third Ave., 212-677-2600). At Le Philosophe in NoHo, expect classic French hangover cures, like baked eggs with gryuyere, herbs and wild mushrooms, croque monsieurs and brioche French toast (55 Bond St., 212-388-0038).
