Looking for a place for a bridal shower brunch - from New Rochelle to White Plains or so.
Any recommendations?

    That's funny, I was just looking to see which restaurants I liked had a good brunch menu for a friend's birthday. So far, I've come up with Bistro Rollin and Caffe Regatta, both in Pelham. I personally thought the brunch menu at Caffe Regatta looked great and reasonably priced. Their food can be a little inconsistent, but for the most part I've always enjoyed it. Atmosphere in both of the above is lovely.

        had my daughter's shower at X2O this past August and I can't begin to explain how amazing it was.

          I have had brunch at both. Enjoyed the one at Caffe Regatta much more. Bistro rollin overated IMO.

            Thanks for the opinion! I would agree simply on the basis of their posted menus. You also get a comp drink with brunch at Regatta which is +$10 at Rollin. We are going to try the Caffe Regatta brunch either this or next weekend, cause now I definitely need to check it out.

          What day? How many? Low-key or loud? Cuisine-conscious?

            Sean - nice place. Pretty decor. About 50-60 people. Good food but not overly fancy so it will appeal to a broad range of guests - ideally a brunch or brunch buffet. Sat or Sun.
            Thank you everyone for your input so far...

              Look into the Tap House in Tuckahoe. I see alot of bridal & baby showers there on the weekends. They have an upstairs space and a back diningroom for your size group. The food is better than most brunch places. Plated brunch is $28/person, while a buffet is $24. If that's too high, then you might want to try Fogerty's in Bronxville, Mickey Spillane's in Eastchester, Molly Spillane's in Mamaroneck.

                Caffe Regatta would be too small for that many people. I like the Tap House idea. My mom also likes Posto 22 in New Rochelle, but I have never been there so don't know if they have a big enough room.

                    Just wanted to update - we wound up going with An American Bistro in Tuchahoe.
                    The shower is going to be in March - I'll update once it's done and let you know how it went. Thanks again everyone!
