  1. You might give Sarge's a try though I've never had any appetizing there, so I ca't vouch for the quality.

    1. Prune has a plate of salmon, garnishes, etc. and a bagel, from Russ & Daughters.

      So does Stanton Social but theirs is from Wolf and Sons.

      1. You can try Barney Greengrass for great appetizing platters with the works.

          Yes, it's good, but not downtown.

            Ah downtown. Sorry did not see that!
            A Salmon platter is quite common in a lot of the well known brunch spots. Off the top of my head, Blue Ribbon Bakery and Balthazar.

        2. Definitely Barney Greengrass!
