Sat/Sun brunch in West Village for 5or6

omnomnom Mar 18, 2008 08:43 PM

We would like to have a nice cute brunch in the West Village for around 5 or 6 ppl. Preferably somewhere that allows reservation so we won't have to wait in the cold for too long. Any price range is fine as long as it is a nice place. Something in the likes of Danal, or Blue Ribbon, Cookshop, 44 & X would do too. Could somebody suggest places pretty please?

    328 W 12th (off Greenwich st)

    the only place I'll go in the West Village because I don't have to wait a ridiculous amount just to get some eggs and toast

      omnomnom, i can't think of any reservation-friendly places for a group your size in the w. village other than perhaps Jane (crowded; food is fair, but not in the same league as blue ribbon bakery) and those already mentioned.

      but if you walk just a little bit further south to SoHo, do try Balthazar. it does a lovely, lovely brunch.

        on second thought, some other decent (note: none are particularly standout), semi-spacious w. village brunch places:

        1. sushi samba (stick to the brazilian offerings like feijoada)
        2. agave (southwestern)
        3. la palapa rockola

        mercer kitchen, also in soho, does a good brunch.

        I'm a big fan of Blue Ribbon.

          I thought they didn't open until 4pm?

            They are open for brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

            I'm talking about the bakery in the Village.

              Ah - thanks - I was thinking about the "original" Blue Ribbon on Sullivan.

              Link to the bakery restaurant.

            don't think they do reservations, even for a group that size, do they?

              Yes they take reservations because they asked us if we had one.

            Perry Street has a very nice prix-fixe for brunch and it's a beautiful restaurant. Also Little Owl has a wonderful Sunday brunch and if you can get in it's definitely a treat.

              It's easier to get brunch reservations at Perilla than dinner ones. The spicey duck burger there is delicious.

                Ditto and they have nice comfy booths. It's actually pretty quiet there during brunch.

                Wallse takes reservations - serves interesting, Austrian inspired food.
