Mini-wedding celebration lunch/brunch! UES/UWS?

My fiance and I are getting married at the courthouse in the BX tomorrow (161 and grand concourse), and are looking for somewhere to take our 2 friends who are acting as witnesses for a nice lunch/brunch pretty much anywhere on the upper east or west (or bronx). Its just a party of 4, and we are all flexible eaters! Any suggestions would be great, thank you!

    Cafe Boulud, on 76th St., b/t 5th & Madison is a favorite of ours. Superb cuisine, polished service, and lovely ambiance.

    Photos of the lunch we had in November at Cafe Boulud:

    Jean-Georges at The Mark recently opened. We haven't eaten there yet, but we have seen the interior, and it's quite nice. Here's a 3-star review from Steve Cuozzo in the "NY Post": />

    Best wishes to you and your very-soon-to-be husband.

    1. Dovetail on 77th bw Columbus & Amsterdam also has a wonderful brunch

        Dovetail is a good idea. However, since the wedding is today, it would be lunch, not brunch.
