Best Sunday Brunch?

Can you toss out good brunch recommendations, please? I have booked Balthazar but am open to suggestions.

  1. A recent list from kathryn that was posted in another recent thread:
    Best breakfast/brunch in NYC:
    It is (IMO) at the Breslin, Locanda Verde, Shopsin's, Clinton St Baking Co., or Minetta Tavern.
    I also have Wallse, Maialino, Artisinal, Prune & Public on my brunch wishlist.

      Thanks for posting a link to my reply. Here's another, more recent thread:

      1. re: kathryn

        kathryn, for good brunches that take reservations, with several vegetarian/pescatarian options on the menu, which would likely be my best bets?

        Realize Locanda Verde is probably my best bet. Where else? Artisinal?

        1. re: prima

          Hmmm.... not my area of expertise (it's not brunch without bacon!) but I would try:
          Jane (brunch only on Sundays)
          Sarabeth's Tribeca

          100 West Houston Street, New York, NY 10012

          210 Spring St, New York, NY 10012

          Lure Fishbar
          142 Mercer St, New York, NY 10012

          339 Greenwich St, New York, NY 10013

    2. I think Hudson Place is a great place for Sunday brunch. They have an amazing variety of things in their menu, and everything I've had there has been good. Also, the price is very reasonable.

      1. Can't attest to whether its the best but went to the Breslin today as it was very convenient to our 32nd St. hotel and we enjoyed it enough to go back. Very English pubby. The prices were reasonable, the menu is not extensive but is diverse enough to satisfy a variety of tastes, and the food was really good. I had the special of breaded and fried house pork sausage, a fried egg and beans in a spicy sauce. My friend had the baked eggs on the regular menu and enjoyed those as well. Other dishes going by looked equally appetizing. I liked the space too, even if it was a bit dark.

        1. We just went for brunch at Aquagrill. It gets a good crowd and are filled. They do a very good brunch with great seafood and "standard" options. Its a great neighborhood to stroll after or before brunch.
