Brunch / Lunch with parents Thanksgiving weekend

uwsgrazer | Oct 24, 2009 07:45 AM

Looking for some guidance from fellow 'hounds as I work out details of parents' visit.

Brunch or lunch for six on Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.

Priorities, in addition to very good food, would be:

- low noise level conducive to easy conversation
- ability to reserve table (or be assured of no wait)
- very good service
- leisurely meal, without feeling rushed to give up the table

Open on price and location, though we seem to gravitate to the West side.

Ideas, so far:

Asiate, for the view and I assume quiet setting (I've never been). It seems right for a *special* occasion.

Telepan - very convenient location

Momofuku Ssam - can we get reservations if we pre-order the Bo Ssam?? I've never been and am dying to try it. I think my parents would be game to, but I'm not sure about two others in the party. Also, is the restaurant noisy?

Cookshop - the idea here would be to visit the High Line after eating. Not so familiar with the area. Any other nearby places we should consider?

River Cafe in Brooklyn - for the view

Other places I considered: Aquavit brunch sounds wonderful, but it's only offered on Sundays. I read Compass had a good brunch but I didn't like the vibe so much when I had dinner there earlier this week. Bar Boulud is nice, but based on an earlier visit seating seems kind of cramped for this occasion.
