    I like Marseille. However my absolute favorite brunch is at Ouest on the Upper West Side. $25 gets you two courses AND a basket of pastries (including mini muffins stuffed with molten bananas) AND coffe or tea. Egg was poached as well as they poach'em. The first time my main course was a breaded fried poached egg over duck carpaccio, prefaced by granola in sweet cream. The second time was an ethereal egg roulade filled with this and that and hollandaised, prefaced by a well composed salad.

      Bar Americain -- absolutely avoid! I do like Marseille.

      Another great spot for brunch is West Bank Cafe. Delicious food. Friendly, efficient service. Attractive, comfortable ambiance.

          Definitely stay away from Bar Americain. The one time I went for lunch it was horrible and over priced. Would never go back again.
