    do you mean the ym/ywHa on 92nd & lexington?

    if so, i've been to (i think it was called) barking dog (around 94th & 3rd). it was pretty standard brunch fare and not bad.

      There's also Sarabeth's on Madison at 92nd - but they don't take reservations.

        Fetch is also pretty good.They have breakfast, brunch and lunch items on the menu. 3rd avenue between 92nd and 93rd.

          2nd Fetch. I was trying to think of the name of that place (all the photos of dogs on the walls) and couldn't think of it at all! Thanks for putting name to place for me.

            I'll 3d it. I don't usually eat in the area, but a non-foodie friend took me once and I was surprised by the good food quality--really enjoyed the french toast.

          I would skip Sarabeths - really don't know what the fuss is about; frou-frou decor with mediocre food and terrivble service. Barking dog is basic, reliable and fun. Don't know Fetch but will try.

            there is a hungarian place that has crepes and delicious pastries on 3rd and 82nd-83rd? I think that is the street. Just had brunch there and it was yummy!

              I think you're referring to Andre's, which is on 2nd and 85th or so. Sort of a schlep to the Y.
