Brunch near Guggenheim Museum

Any recommendation for a good brunch place near the Guggenheim museum?

  1. Here is a thread with a variety of options, depending on what you're looking for. I like Pascalou for brunch, with both breakfast and lunch items, prix fixe and a la carte:

    1. Cafe Sabarsky for that nice relaxing museum-atmosphere breakfast. Food and drinks are pretty good too.

      1. Thanks All. Does anyone know if Barney Greengrass is within walkable distance from Guggenheim? Ta.

            Depends on what you consider "walkable distance." It would be for me but it is more than a mile and through Central Park -- a lovely walk if you are so inclined!

            1. re: City Kid

              It's 1.1 mile according to google maps, with estimate of 23 minutes.

        1. Thanks. Sounds doable. We can have brunch at Barney Greengrass and walk through central park to get to Guggenheim. Hopefully we won't get lost.

            A great plan and not a complicated walk but a pretty straight can always ask a friendly New Yorker which way toward the Met or Engineer's Gate so you don't end up angling too far up or downtown.

            1. re: ceylont

              Sounds good as long as this isn't on a Monday (when BG is closed) or a Thursday (when the Guggenheim is closed).

              If you think you may get lost, look also for the back of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and remember that the Guggenheim is north of the Met on the other side of the park.

              1. re: ceylont

                If you are inclined to walk through the Park via 86/85th Streets, some stretches may not have sidewalks.
                Good luck.

              2. Thanks all for your help. I'm looking forward to it. Art and Food - my favourite :-)
