A friend of mine and myself will visit N.Y. in october.
This is her first trip to USA / New York and since we
arrive late saturday evening, the sunday brunch will
be one of the first things "to do" in N.Y.
I would really appreciate some suggestions /
information concerning good but not too expensive
Manhattan restaurants. Quality of food / price is more
important than location of the restaurant (our hotel
is located close to Times Square and the subway
Thanks in advance
I was the one who recommended to Ake that he check out
this board, so I'd like to nip any snide remarks in the
Ake, I must say, you did not read my suggestion in
rec.travel.usa-canada very thoroughly. My
recommendation was that you SEARCH THIS BOARD
THOROUGHLY UNDER THE WORD "BRUNCH" AND READ ALL
RELEVANT MESSAGES BEFORE POSTING A QUESTION. Please do
that, and then please post any questions in the
relevant thread. The people on this board have posted a
lot of information, and they respect people who do
their homework. Look at the "The Best" board, too.
Thank you very much for your suggestions and the
information. Sorry if I have broken the rules of the
newsgroup. The reason is simply that I posted my
questions, first in "chowhound" and then in "usa-
canada" just a couple of minutes later. With no
earlier experience I did not know that exactly the
same people read both groups.
With all my respect for the people on this board I
will certainly try to do my homework better next time.
I do not intend to cause any unnecessary problems.
re: Åke Björk
No, the exact same people do not read
rec.travel.usa-canada and this board. My point was and
is simply that you should do a search under the word
"brunch" and read those messages before posting your
question. Frankly, I don't care all that much, but
there are some regular posters here who tend to make
very sarcastic and snide remarks to new posters who ask
questions without reading relevant previous posts
first. I wouldn't want you to get sniped at by them.
I take it that you have by now done the search? If you
need help on how to search, please email me.
"hey michael, lighten up. you need to get out of the
city for an afternoon."
I'm just trying to protect Ake from snide remarks. I've
seen what tends to happen to people who post questions
here without reading up first. And since I advised him
to check out this board, I felt responsible. OK? Shut
up now. [big smile, no offense intended]
I would recomend Docks at 40th street and 3rd Avenue.
It's about$10 a person (could have gone up since i've
been there) and there's a good selection and nice
atmosphere. They take reservations, so no wait.
