Brunch in or near SoHo - Where to go?

I'm taking a girlfriend out to brunch for her birthday and am looking for casual but nice places for the celebratory meal. We'll be in SoHo beforehand, so something in or around the area would be great. Any kind of food and price range is fine -- would love to hear your favorites!

      Jane is delish, but we've been there several times and I'd like to take her someplace new. Somewhere that takes reservations would be good, since we're not patient enough to wait!

    2. The Mercer Kitchen may be fun for a celebratory occasion

      1. Aquagrill. Peekytoe crabcake benedict, yum. They also have this great cocktail with a scoop of grapefruit sorbet in it.

          I also like Aquagrill for brunch (and dinner) a lot!

        2. How about the Tasting Room? It's my new go-to in that area if I don't feel like waiting or making reservations in advance (see Jane and Balthazar).

          1. Peep, with its delicious mostly Thai menu, is quite neat. It is in Soho and the Sunday brunch comes with a drink; the Saturday lunch special comes with a beer or non-alcoholic beverage, appetizer and main course.
