Sunday brunch admirers in the Empire State will soon be able to imbibe two hours earlier; on Wednesday Governor Cuomo signed a law that legalizes the sale of alcohol at restaurants starting at 10 a.m.

The purpose of the law is to boost revenue for small businesses, but some restaurant owners are not impressed by the legal gesture.

Michael Ladolce, managing partner of Molly Spillane’s in Mamaroneck, says he could open up earlier on Sundays, but it might not be worth it since he would also have to bring in his workers two hours earlier, and that increases his payroll.

Demi Salvo bartends at Modern Restaurant in Mamaroneck, which also serves brunch at 11. She says she thinks a 10 a.m. opening wouldn't be good for her brunch customers. She says she knows that they don’t get up that early on the weekend.

The state legislature passed the bill back in June; some restaurant owners are excited to see the bill in action, happy that the governor signed the law before the kickoff of the first NFL weekend.
