sunday brunch for 10, incl. 2 kids, downtown?

I tried to make a reservation at Jane (for Sunday Dec. 10) but it is booked. Can anyone think of any other, equally roomy places that take reservations for largish groups? I found a bunch of brunch posts on the boards but most of the (great-sounding) places seemed a little too small for our purposes. Crowd is a mix of visiting 40-50-somethings and a couple of kids, so friendliness and down-to-earthness is a plus. East Village or Soho preferred.

Thanks a lot.

  1. You could check out Good on Greenwich Avenue, Brenners Chocolate on University (or maybe Broadway) and L'Express on Park Ave. South. There's also Balthazar or Pastis.

    1. I wish we could do Balthazar but one of our party is here for the weekend and has reservations for something else the day before.

      I found a 12:30 pm reservation for Jacques on Prince Street, is that any good? when I try and search I keep coming up with other restaurants with "jacques" in the name.

      1. Did you try five-points? they have some large tables, they take reservations, and the brunch is great.

        1. Cookshop takes reservations and is large and spacious. And great brunch.

            ZOE on Prince inbetween Broadway and I think Mercer. Very large, moderate prices including wood oven pizza, great brunch specials, and a great young Chef: Michael Kaphan.
