Before we start our day of walking around SOHO/GV after driving into NYC for a couple of days, we wanted to have a good breakfast in that area. I have read a lot on this board about Balthazar and its unique dining experience as well as its delicious brunches. We don't have anything like a French bistro here in our small town, so I thought it might be neat for our kids (13 and 8) to see. I also have read good things about Home. Which would you recommend for our family? I made a reservation at Balthazar for 10:00 am on a Sunday, but had hoped to eat earlier, maybe around 9:30. The employee who took my ressie said that before 10 it was just "like a continental breakfast" and didn't seem to indicate she would take a reservation for a time before 10. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
