brunch before a Sunday matinee
Roberto Passon, on the corner of 9th Av. & 50th St., serves Sunday brunch. We've only had dinner there, but the food's very good, and the atmospherics are pleasant.
Rene Pujol, the French restaurant, on 51st St., b/t 8th & 9th Avs., serves lunch on Sunday. Delicious food and very nice ambiance.
Uncle Nick's, on 9th Av., b/t 50th & 51st Sts., serves tasty Greek food in a casual taverna-style setting.
Vynl, on 9th, b/t 50th & 51st, serves Sunday brunch. I haven't been, but lots of Hounds recommend it.
