    As for dinning with a dog-I do hope you mean outside.
    I have no suggestions in terms of a place, however there are several web sites that do list dog friendly places.

        Thanks. I like Sarabeth's. If it is crowded do you have a B plan?

      2. Try this link below. It's an old post but submitted an updated list on this thread just last month:

        Have fun!

          How great is that link! Not sure where to start. Do you have ONE suggestion? Thanks for all the doggie sites mentioned in the link. That is a real find as well. My Coton can't wait until tomorrow!

            I would suggest you call tomorrow before you head anywhere, and get the name of the person who approves of your plan. Ya just never know.... and many restaurants will be really crowded for Mother's Day. French Roast has always been great with my quiet Shih Tzu joining us inside the outdoor seating area. Not the best brunch in the world but I like it. I'd call Fred's and Sarabeth's as well. Good Enough to Eat is also cute but I think dogs must sit on the opposite side of the partition enclosing the outdoor area there. It depends on who's in charge on a particular day in most of these places but Cotons are small (and really cute as well!!) so most places may be accomodating. Call Nice Martin to see what they say. Also maybe the Central Park Boathouse, where aesthetics is probably far better than the food, but they do have an outdoor seating area. Anyway, please let us know where you wind up. Have fun!!

              Thanks so much! I'll let you know. Called the Boathouse the other day--all sold out $72 special menu!

                Nice Matin was wonderful! Called the manager ahead. He and the hostesses were really accomodating. We got a big table, which was shocking for 2 people! The hamburger was beyond good! My dog had to help me out! GREAT suggestion. It was far superior to the brunch I usually have in the East Village or the Upper East Side! I guess I have had too many eggs benedict brunches!

                1. re: thinfoodie

                  Sorry about the Boathouse but that was apparently a good thing as I had expected. Never tried brunch at NM but the two dinners I've had there several years ago were good. Thanks to you, I'll be heading on over there with the dog.
                  For some reason, NM falls off my radar screen. Don't know why. Thanks again for following-up on your brunch experience!

                  1. re: nativeNYer

                    You are welcome! Go for the burger. Tell Vinnie the lady with the Coton sent you! It's one of the few places that understand medium rare. Keep me in the loop if you find great brunch or lunch places that are dog friendly.

                    1. re: thinfoodie

                      I'll do just that! Will keep you posted.

          2. Mickey Mantle's isnt great but you can sit outside with the dog,,, Next door is Park Lane ,your dog will need a sport jacket
