My Father's Day brunch plans have morphed and now I've got an even bigger challenge, so I'm seeking some help. On that day, I have an amorphous sized group--anywhere between 9 and 12, and no clear time (except that we will all manage to convene sometime before 10:30), so I can't make a reservation. The party's ages range from 8 to 80, so a long wait is also not ideal. People are staying various midtown east locations, from 39th-52nd. I realize we won't likely get a single table together, but where can we show up and be able to eat in relative proximity? I also realize that food quality will suffer with these parameters, but I'd like something relatively decent.
My current thought is to show up at Sarabeth's Central Park South location as early as possible and hope the wait won't be too bad (they told me it doesn't get too busy until 11). Any other ideas? Any decent delis we could all make it to? I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!
