Brunch near Bleecker to take the parents?

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 :)

      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.

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

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

        1. 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.
