Relatively new to the board. I've read numerous threads on brunch around the city, but I'm looking for something specific so hopefully someone can shed some light :)
I have friends coming from Toronto this weekend and Sunday brunch will be their last meal of the trip - the last meal being significant not because I have to "wow" them before sending them back, but because they'll be carrying their luggage :P I have a group of 7, so I'm searching for a place that will:
- accommodate a relatively large group, with enough room for luggage (so places like Joseph Leonard and Prune are out)
- take reservations (so 75% of all brunch places are out, it seems)
- be close to the subway (not *that* important but would like to minimize walking with heavy things)
Locanda Verde sprang to mind immediately - the only thing is I've been there and it's a bit far off to the west side (friends are flying out of LGA aftewards). If there are any places comparable, I'd love to know.
