Looking for Sunday Lunch/Brunch near or South of Jewish Museum

It's at 92d and Fifth, and then we're heading down towards 65th, so anything in between would be good. We'll be with our 9 year old daughter, who is open to anything. We've been to Payard Patisserie recently and enjoyed it.

  1. Barney Greengrass is around 72d and Amsterdam; famous and my son's fave. It'll be mobbed on Sunday.
    Arnie's around 82d and Broadway is my fave.

      Assuming from the post that this person is headed down the east side these would not be at all convenient. I live in the Jewish Museum's neighborhood and one of my favorite brunches -- reasonable brunch and lunch options, good food, cute French bistro -- is Pascalou at Madison between 92nd & 93rd Streets. Reserve downstairs if you can, much more charming

      1. re: City Kid

        Other options - Square Meal, on E. 92nd, and Paola's at 92nd & Madison.

    2. Cafe Boulud, on 76thSt., b/t 5th & Madison, serves Sunday brunch. Delicious food; cordial, polished service; lovely atmospherics; and family-friendly.

      1. Cafe Sabarsky is *always* the correct choice after an afternoon of museuming, but the lines can be long, so don't go if you're in a hurry.

        Amazing pastries, coffee and good savory dishes too.

          Thanks for remembering it - I had a wonderful lunch/brunch there before Christmas. Nice to see you around.

        2. I like Sachi on Madison bet 94/95th. I know it is two block north, but I have had wonderful veggie tempura there, and I love their veggie gyoza!

          Vico has worked for my older folks -- on Madison bet 91/92. Family friendly. Cash or cheque ONLY. Great fish specials.

          Also Pain Quotidien south of 86th on east side of Madison. Communal table, family friendly.

            Before you send anyone to Vico, in addition to warning them about the no credit card policy, you ought to warn them about the stratospheric prices (even by Upper East Side standards)

              I finally went back to Sachi last night and was pleasantly surprised. We weren't that hungry and thought we'd give it a try. We had the sashimi deluxe, an eel and avocado roll and a tuna belly roll. All were quite good - the place seemed full of regulars. Not as good as the place on 1st Avenue that we like, but certainly of the same quality, if not better, than Ichiro, which was our standard "cheap sushi" place for a long time.
