Favorite Brunch spot in Manhattan?

  • 3

Looking to check out some not-so-obvious brunch spots. Ideas?

(Note, avoid the brunch at Fig & Olive in the meatpacking district at all costs --I just had a god-awful brunch there...and it does not take much to please a hung-over, semi-inebriated gent with a ravenous appetite. Feel free to peruse my blog for details).

  1. Are you looking for places that focus on traditional brunch, i.e., eggs, French toast, etc.? Or do you prefer lots of lunch style dishes as I do? Or would you like something more unusual? Any particular neighborhood? Any budgetary restrictions?

    1. Tell me what you think is an "obvious" spot!

      Here are my favorites:

      Below the radar (slightly) spots: Morandi, Little Owl, Provence, Tasting Room, Devin Tavern, Caffe Emilia.

      1. The multi-course brunch at Ouest has been a longtime favorite. Great coffee, well-composed salads, mini muffins stuffed will molten bananas, this crazy souffle roulade filled with spinach and gruyere--it is my special-occasion brunch place.
