Seeking good Sunday brunch spot in Manhattan--convenience to midtown East a plus

DC/Paris Chowhound seeks good (but not insanely crowded or expensive) spot for Sunday brunch, 4/19. I'm in NYC with my dad, and we've already tried Sarabeth's; I like Good Enough to Eat but fear it will be too crowded (and a bit inconvenient to our location near 53rd and 3rd). I'm looking for a good quality/price ratio and a low-key atmosphere, and I'd would be happy to head to locations under the river on the E line or other convenient MTA routes. Many thanks!

    If this is not too late, a couple of suggestions....

    Bar Breton, on 5th Av., b/t 28th & 29th Sts. Delicious food (galettes are the specialty) and pleasing atmospherics. Take the 6 to the 28th St. stop.

    Aquavit, on 55th, b/t Madison & Park (walking distance from your location), serves an excellent Sunday smorgasbord, Not the usual breakfast foods, but great if you like herring, salmon, and smoked fish.

      If you're willing to take the E train to Queens, I gotta figure you're willing to take a 6 train from Lexington Ave at 51st St down to the Bleecker Street station. Noho Star (it's right there at the subway entrance) opens at 10:30AM. So does Angelina Cafe, while Le Gamin is already open, but I think of those that Noho Star is your best bet.

        Hop onto the 6 train and head to B Cafe on 75th between 2nd and 3rd. Very good belgian bistro and doesn't have a long wait for brunch.
