Alternative to Popovers?

Every time my sisters are in town, we end up eating lunch at Popovers, and it's fine, but I'm tired of it. Any alternatives on the UWS? I like the fact that they serve brunch dishes during the week, and my sisters are veggie, but frankly, how many times can one eat there? It's fine, but it's not *that* great. And just a change would be good.

    1. For weekday--I still like Good Enough to Eat on Amsterdam and 83rd. As I say everytime I walk by on a weekend--it is not good enough to wait, but I enjoy their omelettes and love those biscuits with strawberry butter.

      Also, Nice Matin on 79th and Amsterdam is pretty good for brunch/lunch. They have a few, though not many, veggie friendly dishes.

      There is also Blossom on Columbus between 82nd and 83rd, though I have not been. It is vegan, and was written up somewhere on this board recently.

      I have also had lunch several times at Zeytin, on Columbus and 85th.

      And Land Thai, on Amsterdam between 82nd and 81st (I think!) has a pretty good lunch deal. And if your sisters are veggie, I think their veggie dumplings are some of the best I have found.
