Your favorite meal of the week can be just as rowdy as your 21st birthday party. Here are our top picks.

Brasserie Beaumarchais

409 W. 13th St., 212-675-2400

It might be the city’s most famous brunch party: The champagne celebration features DJs, dancing (sometimes on tables) and classic French fare like croque monsiuers and pain perdu (French toast) — Beaumarchais is one of the most famous streets in Paris, after all.

Bagatelle

1 Little W. 12th St., 212-488-2110

Open for just over a year, the Europe-meets-East-Coast spot has already become a major name in the rowdy brunch scene. French Mediterranean dishes and south of France cocktails are the focus, both enjoyed by locals and world travelers alike. And the party atmosphere is inspired by wild St. Tropez affairs: When the lights turn off, the sparklers turn on.

Lavo

39 E. 58th St., 212-584-2700

Keep an eye out for Leonardo DiCaprio and John Stamos at the the see-and-be-seen spot’s Sunday Champagne Brunch. Take a dancing break for PB&J pancakes (with Reese’s Pieces baked in) and truffled “back to school” grilled cheese, perfect for this time of year. At 4 p.m., the scene gets more clubby, and you’re encouraged to get up on the table.

Cascabel Taqueria

1538 Second Ave., 212-717-8226
2799 Broadway, 212-665-1500

If house beats aren’t your thing, hit Cascabel for rock n roll and two-for-one drinks. The Mexican restaurant serves hangover-be-damned dishes like chilaquiles, breakfast burritos and the Carnitas Benny — griddled corn bread with slow roasted Berkshire pork butt (yup) and poached eggs. We’ve heard you need to get there early!

Corner Social

321 Lenox Ave., 212-510-8552
The party don’t stop uptown: Hit Harlem’s Corner Social for plantain bread with strawberry butter, Cornflake-crusted French toast and jerk chicken. A DJ spins in the background. Word on the street is there’s a big party brunch this Saturday.

PS450

450 Park Ave. S., #1, 212-532-7474

Hangover fries, bottomless mimosas for $25, and Drake tunes bouncing off the speakers — what’s not to love? Try one of their “over the top” French toasts (s’mores, PB&J, the list goes on) and stay for the party. Oh, but first, start with the monkey bread (and resist the urge to order seconds, unless you want to make it your meal, which we’re totally cool with).

Plus: Not just for the weekend

These restaurants offer brunch (minus the party scene, though) Monday-Friday.

Sweet Chick: 164 Bedford Ave., Williamsburg, 347-725-4793

Sanfords: 30-13 Broadway, Astoria, 718-932-9569

The Fourth: 132 Fourth Ave., 212-432-1324

A.G. Kitchen: 269 Columbus Ave., 212-873-9400
