Brunch in Gramercy/Murray Hill

  • t

I love Penelope's, but I can't stand the long wait.

I would love to hear of any brunch suggestions in the East 20's/30's.

  1. You should try Artisanal on E. 32nd St. & Park. I've always enjoyed brunch there.

    1. Turkish Kitchen Sunday Brunch. Btw 27th and 28th on third. Make a reservation.

        I second Turkish Kitchen, though it is not a conventional brunch. Definitely good value compared to some of the other suggestions. --PR

      2. Artisanal is good...but I would also try the Cafe at Country in the Carlton Hotel.

        1. Our favorite brunch place in that area is (no surprise to regulars on this board) Eleven Madison Park.

          Pamplona is open for brunch. We've only been for lunch and dinner. The food's delicious, and I'm sure that would be the case at brunch.

          Both places take reservations.

            I also second EMP. My friend calls it dessert for breakfast. Both their savory and sweet items are delicious. Also wonderful coffee I am told by my friend.

                Agreed...however the price point from Penelope to EMP is a considerable jump.

              2. Resto has a great brunch. I tried to post pictures before with this but it was taken away for some reason. Great Croque Madame.

                  I second Resto -- really solid offering. One of my favorites in the area.
