Looking For Brunch In All The Wrong Places

It’s not easy finding a good traditional style brunch spot. Sure, there are lots of restaurants open between 11 and 2 on the weekends. They say they have brunch because of the time-slot but they don’t have a traditional brunch menu. On a recent outing of the brunch crew it took 3 times before we could locate a restaurant with a proper brunch. At least we thought we had located one.

Saturday’s usually finds me, and one of my best friends, at my favorite local diner for breakfast – a ritual at the same location for more than ten years now – I intend to review that establishment here soon. But this weekend my friend was unavailable and my beautiful girlfriend had the morning off from her yoga instructors course, so minus the usual brunch crew my partner and I hit up the Gramercy Grill for brunch.

In another installment of our brunch series, the brunch bunch meets again, this time at The Sutton Place Hotel. The website claims that this is the “best brunch in the city.” This just might be true though as only the second stop on this intermittent brunch tour it might be too soon for us to declare the validity of that statement. However, as you will soon read, this was a very good but pricey offering at $38.95 per adult / $19.50 per child (4-12 yrs).

Hello readers! Let me take this opportunity to apologize for, what certainly feels to me, like a long hiatus. Life has been getting in the way of posting but with this submission I expect that we will be back on for regular tasty tales!

We’re starting a Sunday Brunch series and our first adventure began two Sunday’s ago at Beyond Restaurant’s Sunday Brunch buffet. At Beyond they combine breakfast and lunch and give you the option of choosing one or the other or both. If you choose brekkie you get it at a reduced price and if you choose lunch you pay the full price of both regardless of whether you take advantage of the breakfast “side” of the buffet.

Naturally, we chose both!
