Large group is seeking a great reasonable American brunch spot within walking distance of the Biltmore Hotel. All suggestions appreciated!

    Bravo does a nice brunch. No where near as good as Nicks or Julians, but it is where I often end up when both of those places are packed.

    Bravo is an easy walk from the Biltmore, at the corner of Empire and Washington.

      Wasn't there talk on here of Bravo shutting its doors?

      I'm going to watch this post myself because I just can't think of any really great spots.

      Downcity Diner is within walking. It's a fun place with good atmosphere that could most likely take a group since they have an upstairs too. In my opinion the food is fine-to-good but can be inconsistent.

      We ate at Citron when it first opened and it was "eh"... like a place that really does dinner but happens to be open for brunch, you know? Maybe you can find a recent posting or someone to chime in, perhaps they have improved.

      I really generally despise chains but Joe's at the mall (gasp!) could most definitely take a group and I personally like the atmosphere. The food is very good but it's not "great" as you request.
