Birthday brunch

  • b

Looking for a great place to have brunch for 25-30
people in Manhattan to celebrate a friend's 50th
birthday. Don't want to break the bank, but looking
for more than just 2 eggs over easy. Any ideas?

  1. Hi,
    If you check earlier posts of mine I recently had a
    wonderful experience with a private party at Moreno
    Ristorante at Irving Pl. and 18th St. Michele Fuchs
    had originally recommended it. He has a special
    private room upstairs. We had a four course meal with
    appetizers, drinks, etc and it was really reasonable.
    I encourage you to try it.

      I don't know; if anyone were taking me for a birthday
      brunch, I'd want them to take me to a dim sum breakfast
      in Chinatown. In an earlier post, I recommended Sun Hop
      Shing tea house at the corner of Mott and Mosco (love
      their jasmine tea). Open early, close early.

        Thanks a million to Phyllis Rosenblum for suggesting
        Moreno - we went with it and it was great. Mr. Moreno
        couldn't have been nicer, his staff was superb and the
        price was definitely right!
