Brunch near First Avenue/51st and Third Avenue/18th ?
Really specific, huh? I'm hoping to meet two people, two separate brunches - but they're both older people who can't walk far. Previously we've ended up at nearby dull diner-type places.
Any recommendations for places within maybe five blocks that might be a bit more interesting?
Thanks! I think that Mangeoire and Aquavit are too pricey, but Maialino and Ponty might be doable. I've passed Ponty and made a mental note to try them for dinner, but brunch never occured to me. I've never been to ABC, but I'll take a peek to see what it's like.
I'm trying to remember whether there's anything at the northernmost part of the East Village...

50 and 1st the first thing that came to mind was Financier's at 54 and 1st but I don't think that is the sort of place you want.
One of the best brunches I have ever had was at Aquavit. 55th and Park so a little farther away but definitely worth it. I get tired of the pancake and egg brunches so this was perfect for me.
