I am coming to NYC for a vacation, but sadly my plane leaves at 1 pm on Sunday meaning that I can't wait for most of the really top-end restaurants that serve brunch open at 11:30, so I am looking for a suggestion.
I would like something cozy. I would prefer to avoid a hotel buffet but could go that route if there's a great one.
I am staying in the east 50's but (in the Chowhound tradition), will go almost anywhere in Manhattan for the perfect early Brunch. Price is not really a concern (romantic weekend for my wife's birthday) but I'm not hell-bent on blowing the budget either.
