BC06 I: Brunching in the New Year

Where are we dining this Sunday? Let's start a dialogue in the comments section of this post.

Also, if you guys make suggestions about brunch spots you want to check out in 2006, I'll compile a list and we can make it our New Years resolution to go to all of them. I'll kick it off: HSF (Chinatown dim sum), Miriam (new middle eastern/israeli place in Park Slope), Public (Nolita).


  • I thought we weren't going to do Dim Sum for brunch anymore.

    Check out this link, I think it might be useful to us in generating new places to go. It is also a nicely designed website.

    We should consider doing our own reviews of brunch places we've been to and are going to go to. What do you think?

    Also, I reccommend Novecento on West Broadway for brunch this week. No real reason, just trying to throw my weight around.

  • hello beautiful brunchers,

    as a result of invitation i received just moments ago, i need to be at lincoln center by 2:45 on Sunday. i am pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a ballerina, which Yoni can assure is highly likely considering his new insights into the psychology of 10-year-old Sara.

  • dude(tte)s, what's up?? i'm home sick and was counting on your whimsical and insightful posts and comments to entertain me. don't make me resort to television.

  • i for one am always in support of dim sum brunch. i was not aware of the moratorium that miss sims mentioned. My favorite part of dim sum is the Famous.

  • Who deleted a post? It had better have been spam, or else somewhere here is trying to run the gulag.
    Hope you feel better Sara.

  • no deletions here! also, sadly, nothing to contribute brunch-wise, since i have some serious civil procedure to read this sunday.. next sunday, however,i'll be in NYC (aren't you guys sick of me yet?) and would love to go to Miriam in Park Slope...

  • one "alias" episode later and voila, some posting action.

    so i know we have been doing a lot of manhattan brunches but would something on the island be amenable to the group since i have my lincoln center commitment?

    Miriam next week sounds cool to me.

    P.S. the deletion was me. i wrote a comment that didn't make any sense, as opposed to my usual comments, which barely make sense.

    Now, for some suggestions:

    1. Public (it's my suggestion, Paul doesn't even know where it is)
    2. Hill diner (Court Street, B-town)
    3. Bubby's (Tribecs)
    4. Nice Matin (UWS)
    5. Clinton Street Baking Company (LES)

  • Let's do Public! Is that a good location for Sara?

    By Blogger Erica Sims, at 1/06/2006 09:58:00 AM  

  • the problem with Public is that its super crowded for brunch and they don't take reservations. it opens at 11 though, so if we got there early (maybe 11:30) we would probably stand a decent chance of getting a table in less than an hour. what do you guys think? sounds good to me.

    also, some more brunch spot ideas for 2006:

    1) Copeland's (Gospel brunch at 145th St)
    2) Paris Commune (W Village)
    3) Maroon's (Chelsea soul food)
    4) Teresa's (Brooklyn Heights Polish place)

  • 1. i think the reason we were hesitant to do dim sum often is because of our vegetarian friends - therefore, we can plan dim sum for when we know that only meat eaters will be attending.
    2. there are so many suggestions floating around, i'm confused. if someone just tells me where to go and when, i will do my very best to be there. public sounds good if everyone can get their asses out of bed (since there is a tendancy to run on the late side...)

    By Blogger Annette, at 1/06/2006 01:07:00 PM  

  • Annette,
    Thank you for backing me up on the dim sum thing. I personally LOVE dim sum, but I was just trying to be fair and just to all members of our group when I mentioned our dim sum moratorium.

    We should just go to Public. We'll show up there at 11:30. If we get there too late or something, we'll just find someplace close by. Does that sound ok? We have like 50 more brunches this year so I think we'll have enough time for everything, including gross chinese food wrapped in greesy rice pouches.

  • You guys? I think I had a blogger ID already and I forgot, and then when I signed up for the brunch club blog I made a new blogger ID and I don't remember what it was. I will look into that but for now I'm just a guest.

    I sadly have to bail on brunch this week because I have a conflicting commitment. I still totally love you guys and I think you're all exceptionally good looking.

  • hey lisa! do you want me to send you another "invite" so you can post and what-not? just let me know!

    By Blogger christine, at 1/06/2006 03:15:00 PM  

  • Sorry guys. I was a bit late in reading the blog post this week. Billy and I are not going to make it.
    See you next week.

    Here are some brunch suggestions:
    Popover Cafe (UWS)
    Prune (hard to get in to though)
    City Bakery
    Essex House (LES)

    Plus potluck at our place is always an option as well.

  • hey all, i am sooo sooo sorry that i missed BC06 I!! Barely into the new year and i have already sinned. I totally slept thru my alarm. on the plus side, i think my massive sleep finally beat the cold that i have been whining about.

    can one of the brunchers puhleez report in?
