Good Brunch Spot

Any ideas for a good brunch place? Looking to spend around $20.00 or so. Would be great if a drink came with the meal.

    1. YOU MUST MUST MUST go to Calle Ocho on the UWS.
      Food is great (i personally love the vegetaria paella) and the best is free sangria! They have a serve yourself sangria bar with about 8 different types (white and red). It's increible. Trust me, you will walk out happy and satisfied!!! Make resies. Bruch on Sunday only; ends at 3.
      $20 bucks will do it for you...I've never spent more!

        Not a fan of Calle Ocho. The food just didn't cut it for me. Eggs were dry, crabcakes weren't right, paella overcooked. I'll admit the sangria is a great deal, and it is fun to try all the flavors, but there is better food at many other places: Nero, good, it all depends on what neighborhood you're in and what you're in the mood for. I will say that Greenwich Village seems to have become the nexus of brunching. Many good options there.

          My experiewnce were totally opposite (my eggs benedict was incredible).

      2. Best brunch that comes with a drink -- probably Jane or the Neptune Room (same owners). Not sure if they do the same deal with The Smith.

        1. Turkish Kitchen has an amazing brunch... if you like mediterranian food.

          1. Gascogne's 3-course brunch prix-fixe is $20 and includes a choice of o.j., a mimosa, or a Bloody Mary. Delicious food. On a summer's day, nothing beats enjoying brunch in their lovely garden.
