Sunday Brunch near The Met Museum please

My girlfriend and I are looking to book somewhere nice for our last meal before flying home.
We want to eat at 1:30pm,so somewhere that takes bookings will be good.
Thanks in advance.

  1. Centolire on 85th and Madison Ave., or The Wright at the Guggenheim on 88th and Fifth Ave.

    1. Do you need it Sat or Sun? Does price matter? Check out Cafe Boulud.

      20 East 76th St., New York, NY 10021

      1. For something more upscale, Cafe Boulud.

        1. Third Cafe Boulud, perfect! I have never been to Centolire, but have not heard good things about it, i.e., inflated prices for so-so food and service. If you are interested in something a bit more informal, Cafe Alsace is very good.

            Thanks to all....I had Café Boulud as a possible..will go there for sure!

          2. Café Sabarsky 1048 Fifth Ave., nr. 86th St.

            If you have not made up your mind, this is an option near the Met Museum. A friend whose taste I admire has eaten here and you may want to check it out.

              Cafe Sabarsky does not take reservations for lunch.

                How about brunch on weekends? Or what would the wait be?

                1. re: TravellingFoodie

                  No reservations for lunch on weekends (there is no brunch, just breakfast and lunch). The wait can be quite long at 1:30 pm, when the OP wants to dine. Otherwise, Cafe Sabarsky is indeed a nice place.

                  1. re: TravellingFoodie

                    They only take dinner reservations. The wait during the day on the weekends can be long.

                    Also they do not serve "brunch." They serve breakfast until 11am and then the menu is the same from 11am on. You can read the menu on their website.

                      Ok, great to check their website or call.
