What are the best places for a really great Sunday brunch?

Some girlfriends I grew up with and I are all meeting in NYC for a few days this June and we want to splurge on a really great Sunday brunch somewhere--preferably someplace where we can get a little dressed up. I wouldn't say price is no object, but we're OK with treating ourselves a little. No preference on what kind of food. We'll eat anything that's good!

    How fun! I've been to the Big Apple a bunch of times to visit my family, so I'll list out my five favorite places for brunch. According to my cousins, they're the creme de la creme of the city! My cousins like these places for their egg dishes, like eggs benedict and huevos rancheros, but as you'll see by my recommendations, I'm more of a sweet carbs gal, so apparently, these places do both savory and sweet dishes right ;)

    • Clinton St. Baking Company & Restaurant : their blueberry pancakes are hands down the best and fluffiest pancakes I've ever had, and it's even better topped with their maple butter. And if you like bacon, they had candied bacon that I think might be made with maple syrup!
    • Jane Restaurant has GREAT French toast! One of my favorite parts of brunch here is the fresh bread that you get with strawberry butter!
    • Cafe Orlin has really good pumpkin pancakes. Get a side of their cinnamon yogurt, too!
    • Of course, there's Norma's . Their very berry brioche French toast is just mind blowing and if you want something really special, try their Waz-za, which is a waffle topped with banana and berries and bruleed.
    • Five Points Restaurant for lemon ricotta pancakes and churros!

    Let us know where you end up going! :)

    I would second (or third, fourth or fifth...) Clinton Street Baking Co. with enthusiasm. With the condition that you go for dinner or possibly brunch during the weekdays, as they can have multi-hour waits during weekend brunch. They're open until 11pm for dinner and, don't let anyone you can't have breakfast at night!


    Café Gitane is a French-Moroccan place in Nolita that can also get busy, but never to the degree of Clinton St. Their waffles are light and come covered with fruit. I'm also partial to the egg sandwich with lamb merguez sausage and the baked pasta with proscuitto.

    Vin et Fleurs (69 Thompson Street) has good truffled eggs, a nice atmosphere and a good slection of breakfast foods. The owner is also really friendly.

    The brunch at YOTEL New York (in midtown by Times Square) is SUPER fun--it's like a continuation of a night out. Went here for a friend's Birthday brunch. Everyone is dressed like they're going out, the DJ rocks, lots of dancing and the brunch is unlimited drinks and food for $40. Definitely a great hangover brunch.

    Definitely check out the Crosby Street Hotel. They have a very wide selection of brunch options from full English breakfasts to a champagne brunch to fairly reasonable a la carte selections. It's also a great place for vegetarians and non-vegetarians to co-exist together because they have such a wide selection of dishes. They also offer a great little traditional afternoon tea with little sandwiches and small dishes if that's interests you. Great people watching here, too because a lot of New Yorkers eat here.

    There are endless options! If you want to go very high end, and maybe even see a celebrity, try Balthazar Restaurant or Pastis. They are very trendy and also have delicious food! If you are looking for some thing a little more laid back, try The Smith Restaurant or Jane Restaurant. Have fun!

    Norma's is really a treat. It's a celebration type of brunch place with completely over the top menu items. Pricey, but well worth the food and experience.

    Clinton Street Baking Co. has the best pancakes, and I'm a huge fan of The Smile , a totally discrete restaurant down in NoHo (a little bit off the beaten path).
