brunch that takes reservations but doesn't cost the earth

I'm looking recommendations for a Sunday brunch that takes reservations for 8 that is in the mid-price range, i.e. not "Pastis" please. I keep reading about "Prune" but they don't take reservations. Any comments on Petite Abeille? Cafe Orlin? Beauty & Essex brunch menu looks good but the decor is too nighttime for a Sunday brunch. Thanks a million!

    1. I am not exactly sure how much the "earth" costs but try:

      Blue Ribbon Bakery
      Jane - every brunch entree comes with a cocktail
      The Smith

        thank you, you were spot on with regard to prices! will check them all out.

      2. If you think B&E sounds good, check out Stanton Social as well.
        Burget & Barrel
        Coilcchio & Sons Tap Room
        Goat Town
        Hundred Acres
        The Smith
        Five Points

          Tap Room at C&S and Lafayette's prices are probably too much for the OP.

          I tried to book a table for 8 at both Hundred Acres & Five Points and their OpenTable pages would let me. Possible they can't accommodate a party of that size. Worth a call, though.

        2. In addition to the ones that have already been mentioned, Sarabeths in TriBeCa takes brunch reservations. Don't think the other locations do though.
