Brunch near the Museum of Natural History Sunday

I am meeting a friend (both of us are from out-of-town) at the Museum of Natural History on Sunday and we're looking for a place for brunch in the neighborhood. Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

  1. Nice Matin, Good Enough to Eat, Barney Greengrass, Calle Ocho

    1. Not sure what you are looking for but here are two very different options.

      Dovetail - very nice restaurant, very good food, very close to museum

      Barney Greengrass - an iconic restaurant with the best fish going but they also have breakfest items (oddly enough most include the aforementioned fish). This is a real old school place, nothing fancy, and a bit of a stroll from the museum

      1. Ocean Grill, right behind Natural History -- very good brunch and lunch options, great service, and conducive to conversation.

        1. Isabella's - get there early to avoid the crowds.

            Ocean Grill is the sister restaurant to Isabella's and just across Columbus. Almost identical menu and they take reservations!
