Looking for a nice place for either brunch or lunch. Mother in law is more the 5th Ave type. Décor ranks higher than food for her. Mom is funky-more downtown than uptown lady. Daughter-will find something to eat but no seafood. I am open to anything but have to consider my companions for this trip. We will be down in Soho for a hair appt. and the less walking for the mothers would be great. Not opposed to taking the subway. Also the mothers are hard of hearing so a place that isn't too loud would be good. I know that is a lot of special requests but I know you chow hounders can help me out.
