Blue Ribbon Bakery, Jane, or Cookshop for Brunch?
I'm planning a brunch for 6 people in a few weeks, and deciding between Blue Ribbon Bakery, Jane, and Cookshop (and any other recommended places!). We're all 30-somethings and budget is @$30-40pp. Of these three places, what should I pick? Any other places worth considering? Downtown (E or W) preferred. One friend is vegan, so that's also something to consider.
I just went for dinner at Blue Ribbon Bakery last evening. It was wonderful. However, I don't know what their brunch is like, but it might be a over your $30- $40 budget. It was however, the best dining experience I have had in Manhattan in awhile. They really know how to treat you right. We sat in the down stairs bakery area. Really really great food, wine and hospitality.

Your vegan friend is going to have a very limited selection (1-2 items) at ALL of these places.
