my better half is running the marathon this year, as he has in years past. the one thing that matters for our post marathon brunch/lunch? food...fast! we don't live on the upper west side, so this usually ends up meaning...restaurant. but.
the marathon is on sunday every year, and sunday usually means, long waits at the big places.
so i'm looking for a restaurant which serves either normal brunch/pasta but is not a hotspot--aka we'd get a table easily at 1230/1. a decent, under the radar dependable place.
it doesn't need to be amazing. just good, and fairly simple and easy-going.
any recommendations would be much appreciated!! cheers
