Does anyone know if Sarahbeth's (West) serves brunch? If it does is it like the CPS brunch? Do either of these places take reservations? Will my parent's like it?
Yes, the Sarabeth's on Amsterdam does serve brunch. No, they do not take reservations, but the one on CPS does.
Your parents will love it. Mine always do. (And I love them paying for it!!!)
It is fairly similar, though a few menu items will be slightly different. The CPS branch is the only one that takes reservations, to my knowledge (for brunch - all of the branches take reservations for dinner, I think). It's more conveniently located for out-of-towners as well, but if you're set on the UWS location I'd try to get there anytime before 10:30-11:00 a.m. or after 1:30 p.m. for a minimal/no wait.
Enjoy! I miss those lemon ricotta pancakes.
