Sunday Brunch?

Looking for great Sunday brunch Flatiron and south. Great food, not the same old Hollandaise. Have been to Five Points and Home which we really enjoyed, but want to try something new and different.

  1. If you're willing to go upscale, I highly recommend brunch at Eleven Madison Park. Skip the breakfast stuff and head straight for Chef Daniel Humm's French-inspired lunch dishes. Superb!

    Another excellent option is Fleur de Sel. Actually, they serve Sunday lunch. In addition to the a la carte menu, there are two prix-fixes: 3 courses for $29 and 5 courses for $46.

    We haven't been to Tocqueville since they moved into their new space, but we always enjoyed the food there. They now do Sunday brunch, which they didn't do in the old location.

      Thumbs down on Tocqueville. Last time there, service was indifferent/inattentive, and it was very overpriced for mediocre (lunch) food.

        i have to say that tocqueville may be at the top of the "mixed reviews" list on chowhound. just an observation.....

    2. Mesa Grill...great brunch...Fantastic Bloody Marys and bread basket worth the trip alone...

      1. Petite Abeille, City Bakery, Craftbar

          there are the other tried and true places with long waits like clinton st baking co on clinton st of course and prune of first st - but i really like good world bar on division and orchard st for a kind of swedish influenced brunch and grotto - the italian restaurant with a lovely garden on forsyth st.

            How is the Good World these days? I had a really bad experience there the last time I went (except for the delicious hot pepper martini . . . ). Would like to give them another chance. Like their location at the end of Orchard Street (and they do have that little patio/garden in back), a bit off the beaten path.

        2. i definitely suggest brunch at the Peacock Alley Restaurant, Waldorf Astoria...the Chef is just amazing! Check out the cuisine and the space on
