Breslin-like brunch place that takes reservations?

  • 8

Okay, chowhounders, here's a riddle of a food need:

We're taking my cousin out to brunch for his birthday. His favorite brunch place is The Breslin (I've never been), but we can't go there because we have a few additional needs to accommodate:
1. We need a place that takes reservations (we're a party of ~10).
2. We need a place at least moderately vegetarian-friendly.
3. We will have a baby (and stroller) in tow.

Any suggestions for somewhere that has a similar vibe / menu but fills these additional needs?

Thanks for your help!

      Have you tried Red Rooster for brunch? I'd love to hear details if you have. I'm currently attempting to herd some cats into going, either for brunch or dinner.

    2. I believe that Freemans takes reservations for parties larger than 6. I'm not sure how vegetarian-friendly their menu is, but it's worth looking into.

        Baby stroller in Freeman's is not going to go over well, even if you could squeeze it in. DBGB would be better. But in general Breslin and anyplace with a imilar "vibe" is decidedly not baby friendly.

      2. Thanks for the suggestions! I realize this hip + stroller-friendly request is probably impossible. But I'll see what we can do...

        1. Peels. More spacious than Freeman's, bigger menu, and takes reservations for 6+. Same people as Freemans too.

          (Of course, I'm of the camp that taking a baby anywhere hip is a bad call.)

            there was a human spawn at Edi and the Wolf last Friday night at 8pm screaming its head off. We scowled, they left. Muahahahahaha.

          2. Look into Spitzer's Corner. They take reservations for groups of 10 or more, they're hip, the food is pretty good, there's vegetarian friendly fare, and I have seen a stroller in there, before. (There's room.)
