Mid-town Lunch/Brunch

Before heading to Citi Field today for a baseball game, we wanted to grab some snacks and drinks around 2pm, preferably somewhatclose to grand central, making for an easy trip to Queens.

I would say we're looking for brunch fare, but 2pm feels late for a brunch, but generally we're looking for some yummy, easy eating and drinking. Any ideas? We eat all foods so would welcome any cuisine, just as long as its delicious.

  1. Kellari Taverna is not too far from Grand Central, on 44th, b/t 5th & 6th. Very good Greek food. If you're looking to "snack," you could do a bunch of mezzes. If you want something a bit more substantial, they do a great job with grilled whole fish. They also offer a brunch menu.

      The italian spot cipriani dolcie is really great, with an incredible viwe of the station floor from the balcony--and the Oyster bar is a NY tradition

        Is Cipriani worth going to? Do they have Bellini's there and are they as good as the ones in Venice? Wish I could go back to Venice again to get some.
