  1. Per Se is open for lunch, though if it's very soon, you might have a hard time getting a reservation.

    Aquavit, which is within walking distance of the TWC, has one of the best Sunday brunches in the city. It's not very traditional, so take a look at the menu, first, to make sure you'll like it:

    Per Se
    10 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019

    65 E 55th St, New York, NY 10022

    1. How about brunch at Nougatine?

      1. Petrossian at 58th & 7th. Often overlooked as a good possibility. You'll find info and menus at

        1. If you mean the Mandarin Oriental (and I bet you do!), they serve brunch at Asiate for $48, which strikes me as obscene. I haven't had brunch there, but I did have lunch, which was less obscene at $24, and the view was very pretty.

          1. I assume you mean she's staying at the Mandarin Oriental at the time warner ctr. Nearby is Blue Ribbon Sushi/Grill on 58th/8th, open for lunch and good for sushi and japanese-influenced fare. Landmarc and Bouchon Bakery would be good casual options in the TWC. Asiate at the MO is impressive for the view, though wildly overpriced.

              I second Landmarc in TWC. Affordable, good variety and a comfy (but huge) space.
