Thursday Brunch for Girlfriend's 23rd Birthday

My girlfriend's 23rd is coming up and since she LOVES brunch, I want to take her to a really nice place (willing to go pretty much all out here aka $100-150 range for 2) I'm having some difficulty finding places that will serve brunch (or brunchlike) food on a thursday afternoon, my main two as of now are 5 Ninth in the meatpacking district (which comes with the bonus of an outdoor patio and the nearby highline) or Cafe Orlin. We live on the outskirts of Williamsburg, so something relatively closeby would be better because we have no car and will be hungry! We're very adventurous and places that have some other wow-factor/nearby activity would be ideal, but naturally the food is of the utmost importance.

  1. None of these places are upscale but they do serve breakfast late on weekdays:
    Joseph Leonard - until 3:30pm
    Shopsin's - until 2pm but I'd get there earlier in case they shut down early
    Clinton St Baking Co - breakfast until 4pm
    Sarabeth's - UWS, UES, or Central Park South all serve breakfast until 3:30pm

    For Brooklyn, you need to post on the Outer Boroughs board.

      thanks for the recommendations, Joseph Leondard looks particularly delicious. I'll definitely post to the outer boroughs as well.
