Brunch near Bleecker to take the parents?

delish317 Oct 29, 2007 12:31 PM

Looking for a delicious (not too fancy) brunch to take my parents this Sunday. It has to be downtown since they are going to a matinee afterwards.

It would be preferable to suggest some restaurants where they take reservations.

Thanks :)

    East Village or West? Jane on Houston is central, Blue Ribbon Bakery on Bedford is west, Five Points on Great Jones is east. I recommend all of them for food, unconditionally. All are within the same price range (moderate/relaxed upscale) and take reservations.

      I would add Quantum Leap on Thompson. A little crunchy but good!

        Blue Ribbon Bakery doesn't take reservations unless you have a party of 5 or more, I believe.

        But I endorse all three.

          oops- i think you're right. the only time i tried to make a reservation there for brunch we actually were 5 people, so it didn't come up... but that rule does ring a bell.

        Near Bleecker and where? More west side or central (like Broadway)?

          If they like Indian, Surya on Bleecker and 7th. Haven't met a parent who doesn't love that place.

              Second this. Jane is a pleasant place to brunch. Also, though I am not fond of Sushi Samba for dinner, but they actually have a decent, low-key brunch.
