Best weekend brunch above 42nd st - no not norma's
am looking for suggestion on either east side or west side. prefer vegetarian friendly.
I like Brasserie 8 1/2 (at 9 W 57th) because it's a good buffet and my younger friends can eat as much as they want. Other friends very much like Petrossian at 58th & 7th. You'll find that menu at menupages.com
Thanks to RGR's Marseille recommendation we had brunch there a few months ago. It was excellent-everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Loved the FRITTATA VERDE with swiss chard, raisins, pignoli nuts, parmesan & pesto.So good that I've tried to make this dish at home. Nice bread basket for starters. Warm , friendly service at a good pace for a busy Sunday.
I love all the high end department store brunches, they are terrific:
Fred's @ Barney's
Saks Fifth Ave - men's side has a small bar, cheaper than Women's side
Sak's women's side has a gorgeous view of the Park
There's also the cute french bistros:
match 65 (was paris match)
And of course, there's always the Pain Quotidien and all the varied locations.
