Brunch in East 50s/60s

Any ideas? Preferably somewhere that takes reservations, or where there won't be too long a wait. Traditional/American is good, but I'm up for pretty much anything.

    bistro 61 (american/french) on 61st and 1st has a good brunch- and theyre rarely packed. I also like portofino (italian) on 63rd? and 1st. Cacio e pepe is nice too, on lex. i cant remember the cross street, but its in the 60s.

      Brio on 61st between lex and park. Surprisingly excellent eggs and bloody marys for an Italian restaurant!

      bastet212, i think you might be referring to Pane e Vino. I don't recommend - ok food, but really, REALLY abysmal service.

        Thanks- Bistro 61 and Brio both look really good.
