Brunch/Lunch on Boerum Hill
In a few weeks I'm coming to NYC to get fitted for a bridesmaid dress.
The dressmaker is in Boerum Hill on Atlantic Ave between Hoyt and Bond. I am completly unfamilar with this area (Only spend time in Manhatten when visiting my brother) but I was hoping to grab a good brunch/lunch either before my 1pm appointment or after. Nothing too heavy but something tasty with service that doesn't take forever and a day.
I'll either be dining by myself or with a friend (who may meet me). I did some quick rsearch on Zagats and came up with Bar Tabac, Downtown Atlantic (the cupcakes look mmmmm good!) and Jolie.
Any thoughts on these 3? Anything else I should consider? I"m not interested in being more then a few blocks from the dressmaker nor am I interested in going some place seperate on the train just for lunch.
Thanks for your help!
A bunch of ifs: if your fitting is at Michelle, if you are really lazy (I never use that word in a negative way), if Middle Eastern food sounds really good to you and if you care to forget about brunch (which they don't do), Bedouin Tent is right across the street, on the other side of the Bond St. intersection. Nice backyard and screened-in 'tent' dining. It's a go-to place for me although there are other luke-warm reviews on this board. If the above criteria fit the bill for you, it is, IMO a safe & solid choice---at worst, ok. At best, very good.
