Recs, please, for W Village brunch, mother/daughter
I am bringing my mother to the city for her 81st birthday. We would like to have brunch or lunch in the village on Friday or Saturday.
We will need to take a taxi from CPS as my mother is not able to walk more than two or three blocks.
Can anyone recommend a fun place that takes reservations, is not too expensive, is not too touristy, where the cuisine is American or French or Latin but not haute cuisine?
This will be our only time to experience the Village.
Our trip is scheduled for early August.
Many thanks for your suggestions.
August would be really nice - they have a very nice garden area in the back and the egg skillet things (not sure what they're called) are so delicious.
Blue Ribbon Bakery has great food, but there would be a wait on the weekend. Best times to go are (1) before they open (just before 11:30) and get on a short line at the door, and (2) at 3:30pm, after the crowds have cleared, and just before brunch ends. Good variety of eggs and lunch items... any of the poached eggs selections are the items not to miss... and the chocolate bread pudding.
Wallse is really nice and my husband and I have enjoyed our dinners there very much. I didn't realize they had brunch and am now excited to try it. It's a fancier place but the food will be very delicious... creative Austrian.
Wallse is in fact Austrian, not American or French or Latin...
August is an excellent choice, I really like that part of the W. Village; it is more quiet and peaceful. Maybe a better spot i need someone to help me with...There is a small French bistro, the menu changes daily and they have incredible pastry and coffee. It is smallish inside but have 3-4 tables outside. I think it is on 11th street. Anyone know the name??
Miracle Grill, on Bleecker at 11th, does a really nice Southwestern brunch, and it's in a great location. They do nice brunch cocktails and margaritas too.
