Brunch Suggestion for group of 6 or 7
Planning a reunion of elementary school chums (# of years not important, but it's not a small number!) for a Sunday brunch in May. Expect to be between 6 and 8 people. We're looking for a place that takes reservations, is comfortable (and not too noisy).
Would like to stay below 42nd Street, since midtown and above is likely to be overrun by a large parade.
First off, I hope you're not planning to book on Mother's Day!
For quiet brunch for a large group, I would book:
Freemans (if you can get the private room)
Jane (if you can get the private room downstairs)
Five Points (space for larger parties is in back -- there's a tables and a booth)
Blue Ribbon Bakery (they can seat bigger groups downstairs but it really depends where they seat you re: noise levels)
Public (maybe if you can get the semi private long table?)
