I'm going to be in town with my two siblings to celebrate a 30th birthday. We all previously lived in NYC so we're really looking forward to meeting up again and EATING! Since we all had to travel, I'm going to dispense with the notion of a fancy shmancy meal and just try for something really nice and memorable. The last big birthday we celebrated together in NYC was a 21st birthday at Colicchio & Son's and I think Gramercy Tavern was another blow-out birthday meal that we had back in the day.
Our birthday meal this time will be a Sunday brunch (due to flights, can't make it dinner) and there will be five of us total. Happy to travel but not too far since we will have bags etc. We will be staying in Downtown Brooklyn and spending most of the weekend in Brooklyn so venturing out to Manhattan sounds good. Any suggestions for some place special, where we can linger and catch up and get to know the new members of the clan would be ideal.
I know I can count on the chowhound community for some good recommendations. All suggestions are welcome!
