Places for Lunch/Brunch Date around Columbus Circle/UWS
I am looking for a good place (not too noisy, informal but good food) for lunch/brunch on Saturday afternoon around Columbus Circle / Low UWS or Midtown around Central Park (Westside - West of Madison Ave) above 46 St.
Please... no Norma's, I've been there too many times.
Money is no object. Please share your reccomendation.
If you can get a reservation, my pick would be Jean Georges. Even though it is the formal dining room, during the day, no jackets are required, so the room has an air of informality about it. The 2 for $28 menu remains one of the best lunch deals in the city. It's wonderful to sit back in that lovely space and be pampered by the polished service.
