Brunch w/in 15-20min walk of 57th and 2nd

Looking for a place to take my boyfriend for brunch for his birthday - just the two of us. No brunch entrees for more than $15, although "specials" can go up to $20. No diners... The catch is, he doesn't like cramped spaces... Was looking at B. Cafe and Matisse.. but the first one has cramped written all over it and the second one seems to be hit or miss. Thanks in advance!

  1. Is this for a weekend or a weekday?

    I had a very nice brunch at The Garden at The Four Seasons Hotel on East 57th Street a few months ago. I can't remember the prices but you could call for more information.
