Has anyone been to either of these two for brunch? Both get very lukewarm reviews for dinner from multiple sources, but I need a place that takes reservations, for a party of 7 adults and 3 children (all under 2 years old). I OpenTabled for 10 people and these two seemed the best in terms of menu and price. However, the many complaints on citysearch and yelp re: service for both places worry me a bit, esp with 3 very sweet-natured but very young children in our party. Would love to hear any other suggestions - anywhere in Manhattan is fair game.
(not a very chowish question, sorry... friends started making babies, and priorities have to be temporarily reassigned, at least for one meal... promise to make up for it with a solid trip report involving 5, maybe 6 dinners in 3 nights in April...thanks!)
