Best Prix Fixed Brunch


My fiance and I are looking for the best prix-fixed weekend brunch for under or at $20 a person. We are looking for a place with a laid back atmosphere that does not require a reservation. I'd love to hear your suggestions. Thank you!

  1. Bonelick Park has tasty "prix fixee" (can't figure out how to add an accent!) brunch entrees for $13-$17, which includes AYCD mimosas, bloody marys, and frozen mrgaritas. Its by the SW corner of 7th Ave and 11th St. Beef short ribs, fried oysters, pulled pork, and eggs with thick bacon slices are all very good; most dishes include eggs, cheese grits or potatoes au gratin, etc.

      What was your overall opinion? Would you go again? Would you recommend it to your friends?

        Um, I really like it, would go (and have gone!) again, and would recommend it to friends (as I recommended it here). Was this not clear from my post??

          I really don't like the brunch at Bonelick Park. I went a few times when I lived in the neighborhood and tried to like it as it was cheap, but the food was just not worth it. Fried foods came out soggy with grease; grits were mysteriously gelatinous; barbecue was disappointing. Even the eggs were dry. Margaritas were cloying with pre-made mix and overly sour. Mimosas were metallic-tasting. There are better options for AYCD nearby. Try Nero for only a few bucks more.

    2. I really like the one at Cornelia Street Café. For $16, you get coffee/tea, juice, a baked good (you can get Amy's chocolate bread), and an entrée (the huevos rancheros are my fave, but there are pancakes, French toast and egg dishes).

        I agree - very good value for the money.

          Steak & Frites is a good bet. V reasonable

        2. Truffled egg toast with coffee (or tea) AND freshly squeezed OJ at 'ino. $12. Not exactly laid back for brunch but a lot of tasty for your dining dollar.
