New suggestions for Brunch

bananapan Feb 25, 2010 05:20 AM

I know NYC brunch has come up on this board several times...but I was wondering if anyone had come across a somewhat new place whos food was outstanding for brunch or had a great ambiance. It does not have to be fancy nor does it have to be a quick bite to eat sort of place. All suggestions are welcome. I love Balthazar, August, Extra Virgin, Normas and such. Any other suggestions?

        The menu looks great and I love restaurants that try and use local sustainable ingredients!

        A friend raved about the brunch at Emporio on Mott, which had been off my brunch radar. It's a nice little spot. Have any hounds had the occassion to check out Emporio's brunch?

          I've been to Emporio for brunch, but we ended up ordering a pizza and salad. The pizza was piping hot, made with quality ingredients, and absolutely delicious.

          How about Prune or Public?

              Belcourt has been my new brunch staple. The Chef is, I believe, a Prune alumni, and the restaurant itself is within walking distance to Prune. Menu is mainly brunch staples with some French flair, and some non-traditional brunch dishes like the salt cod hash w/harissa and a poached egg.
