|JT loves a good brunch, too!|
I love everything about brunch about as much as I love New York City. THAT says a lot.
(Anyone who knows me understands my love affair with this so-called concrete jungle.... so to say that brunch scores high up there with my beloved city-lovin' says a whole lotta' mucho mucho!)
Anyway... My mom is coming in town soon and I've got to get reservations for some brunch places. I'm thinking Boulud Sud for Easter... but could use some help with other places.
My current top 5 brunch places:
Prune is fantastic, but I'm not standing in line with a 2-year old to get into a cramped space. That just calls for trouble.
Pastis has always been a favorite of mine, too - but not sure if Mom would be all happy about the loud crowd that is inevitable. Plus, getting over there is quite the long haul from our place in Midtown East.
We've already done Riverpark -which is quite good for brunch, but in the "been there, done that" category for her.
I will have to avoid Pure Food and Wine's brunch, because Mom's more traditional when it comes to her food choices.
The riverboat deal for The Water Club might be up her alley, but it's closed right now... Thank you, Super Storm Sandy.
Please send me your ideas! Just please: NO BUFFET suggestions. NYCFG doesn't do buffets unless I'm one of the first 10 people to go through the line OR new food is placed down at the moment I approach the area. (I know, I know... it's a germaphobe thing!)
I'm also open to the idea of Brunch Bloggers getting together every 6 to 8 weeks to review a new place. If you're interested in this concept, contact me and let's see what we can set up.
