saturday lunch/brunch challenge
My family (two ex-New Yorkers, four current New Yorkers, and two lifelong Bostonians) are convening in New York in a few weeks. It's a reunion of sorts, and a few people have never met before, so somewhere fairly quiet would be great. That said, I'd prefer somewhere more fun than stuffy.
--The out-of-towners are staying in midtown -- two in the W 40s, and two in the E 40s. So, we'd consider either side of town, from about 14th street - 70th street.
--Lunch or brunch is fine, and hopefully American, Italian, Mexican, or Mediterranean-type food. One person is an extremely picky eater, so nothing too adventurous.
--I'd love somewhere nice / festive but affordable, as I'm sure my parents will insist on paying. Looking for entrees in the $15-$25 range.
--Some ideas I've had are The Smith, Red Cat, The Breslin, and ABC Kitchen, to give you an idea of our tastes.
