Sat-Sun Lunch/Brunch for Visitors, Midtown to UES

Kamembert Jul 21, 2007 05:37 PM

Parents visiting, and need to stay around Midtown/ UES for lunch/ brunch Sat and Sun, as in-between museum visits, my place, etc. Want to take them to someplace w relaxed ambiance, very good food (they're not as chowish as I by far, so a place w great ambiance and v good food w/b best)) w/ Very reasonable prices to spare them sticker shock. J-G they liked very well, loved the scenery at the Boat House and we got lucky w decently prepared omelettes, etc there, Vivolo was perfect for them, being cozy, relaxed, good preparations of traditional fare, non-sceney, and very reasonable dinner prices. So, going back there for a dinner. French, Ital, Amer, something for conservative 70+-yo's from the Midwest looking for solid fare at a decent price, though with a NY bent........ Any ideas?

        How about the Park Avenue Cafe?

          Park Avenue Cafe has morphed into Park Avenue Summer and, as the seasons change, will become Autumn, Winter, Spring -- along with appropriate menus.
