Where to have brunch in NYC?

cmm3 Jun 29, 2010 02:47 PM

Does all you can eat brunch exist in NYC?

Where do you recommend? I was considering David Burke's Townhouse, or the Mandarin Oriental's brunch. I'm leaning towards the latter.

Can you recommend a few other top spots? I'd prefer all you can eat, if exists...

    All you can eat is not common, but it exists here:


    and here:


    They're both pretty good, not great. If you search this board, you'll find many threads about brunch.

      Any recommendations for "great", even if they are not all you can eat?

          You're very kind. I, on the other hand, am trying to refrain from enabling the search-averse. Give a man a fish, etc.

        Brasserie 81/2 W. 57th. Not bad and you can linger for hours.

          Spigolo serves brunch/lunch on Saturdays and Sundays-sorry it aint a buffet-fine Italian meals. A very nice option instead of bacon and eggs.
