Manhattan Brunch place for 15-20 people, mid-range prices...maybe even outdoors?

I'm having a b-day thing on a Saturday, and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for a good cheap-ish brunch place in Manhattan. I'm expecting a large group--maybe as many as 20 people--and I'd like a relaxed space large enough to accommodate us that has a decent brunch menu, as in comes with coffee or a mimosa in addition to an entree. Mid-range prices would be best--25 or 30 bucks a person, but the most important thing is space.

Anyone know a place with a good brunch menu that can accommodate a group that big? It's not for a few week so I'll have the reservation in soon--oh yea, they need to take reservations too!

Oh yea, and my dream place would also have an outdoor space.

I'm in Astoria and I know of some places like this there, but my ideal would be to find its equivalent in Manhattan, cause folks are coming from diff. boroughs and NJ. Thanks for any suggestions!

  1. One of our favorite spots for brunch is Gascogne, the lovely little French bistro on 8th Av., b/t 17th & 18th St.s The 3-course brunch prix fixe is $22, and it includes a choice of o.j., mimosa or "Bloody Marie." The food's delicious, and they've got one of the most charming gardens in the city. It can accommodate a large group.

    1. Jane has a private room that can accommodate a large group. I believe their menu would suit your budget with no problem.

      1. Try 24 Prince - the prices are very reasonable and they have an outdoor garden space. Best of all, it's always easy to get a reservation so you shouldn't have trouble to get your group in on a Saturday afternoon.

        1. I recommend you try to do a search for Kathryn's famous brunch encyclopedia.

          1. Thanks everyone! These are great suggestions. I'm gonna go check out Jane and 24 Prince today. And yes I definitely need to check out this brunchipedia thing. Thanks!
