"Special" Sunday brunch place -- instead of River Cafe :(

Fay Nov 15, 2012 04:34 AM

Any recommendations for a place with a beautiful room and great food that could stand in for the River Cafe this Sunday? We have an annual family brunch there to celebrate a bunch of birthdays, but, as folks probably know, it is sadly closed due to Hurricane Sandy. Anywhere in the city is okay.

    River Park rocks our world.

      Asiate and A Voce would be worthy stand-ins IMO (might be over-emphasizing view here). Also, far from a 'brunchy' meal, but I always fancy Jean Georges on a Sunday

        If you want to keep a little bit of that "water" feeling (just a little bit), I've always enjoyed a lot River Park (one of Tom Colicchio's restaurant).

        Jean Georges is always a great recommendation as well..
