Sunday brunch near opera house?
We will be celebrating my mother-in-law's 70th on a Sunday in December with brunch and the Nutcracker. I'm looking for a brunch place that, ideally, meets the following characteristics: has a moderate sense of ceremony, given the big birthday; is a pretty close walk to the opera house (some people joining us aren't big walkers); and takes reservations. Some of the places I've found meet 2 of the 3, but I'm wondering if I've overlooked anything or if there are general Chow-ish opinions?
Options I have found:
- Bistro du Midi - Would be perfect if it took reservations
- Sip - No reservations, and questionable food/atmosphere (right?)
- Four Seasons - a bit longer walk, and spendy ($48pp)
Thanks for your thoughts!
Thanks for the suggestions. We went to Artisan Bistro in the Ritz, and it fit the bill perfectly. The food was good, there was a reasonable sense of occassion for a brunch, and it wasn't as insane as some of the other places (4 seasons!). We spent about $25pp including tip. I'm really glad I made reservations - they weren't taking any walk-ins -- even someone staying at the hotel couldn't get in!
