  1. Don't know how far you're willing to walk, but I'd choose Marseille on 9th ave and 45th-ish in that neighborhood. My office is on the same block as your theater, as are a lot of others, meaning that there's a lot of expense account-ish mediocrity around - Bar Americain is the classic example, though their brunch, for all I know, could be superb.

    1. Roberto Passon, on the corner of 9th Av. & 50th St. -

      Rene Pujol, on 51st, b/t 8th & 9th -

      Vynl, on 9th, b/t 50th & 51st -

      Uncle Nick's, on 9th, bt 50th & 51st -

      1. Not superb, but definitely easy is the buffet brunch at Brasserie 8 1/2 on 57th between 5th and 6th. Last time that I went it was $27 and did not include a beverage (even coffee)! But it's easy and they have a nice jazz ensemble that plays.
