East Side Brunch (50's-80's) - Alternatives to Sarabeth's?

We always seem to meet our friends at Sarabeth's when having brunch on the upper east side. As much as we enjoy Sarabeth's, we are looking for new places to try. Open to all suggestions.

    1. re: 10yrresident

      I agree. Unfortunately, due to the sale of the building it closed in January.

    2. Cafe Boulud and Aquavit will be my pick

      1. La Mangeoire @ 53rd & 2nd is very popular in this neighborhood. Very reasonable too.

        Mia Dona, recently opened on 58th bet. 2nd & 3rd, also has brunch. I haven't been yet as the offerings seem a little heavier than what I generally want for 1st meal of the day. You'll find their menus at Zagat:

        La Mangeoire
        1008 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10022

        1. David Burke and Donatella has a good brunch pre-fix for $29. or $35. It is a bit expensive but quite good.

          1. my parents & I just tried Grace's Trattoria and it was lovely. more lunch-oriented than brunch, but I had the scrambled egg pizza and it satisfied my breakfast craving.
