Midtown Brunch

Looking for a good midtown brunch. Brasserie, Town, and Norma are all contenders. Would appreciate your opinions.

  1. It's been ages since I had brunch at Town. At that time, the food was delicious (as was the one dinner we had there). However, the current menu seems quite different from what it was back then. For example, I had pasta, and I don't see any listed now. In any case, the space is drop-dead gorgeous!

    1. I ate at Brasserie about six months ago and the food was very good. The menu consists classic french brasserie fare including eggs benedict, scrambled eggs with truffles and omelets with mushrooms and gruyere. All of which were excellent and the portions were generous. The atmosphere has a 50’s mod-like loungy vibe while still upbeat and trendy. The service was good, prices were moderate and they let us sit at our table as long as we wanted while we chatted. It's a nice choice.
