    I will be in NYC May 27-June 1. I have most of my meals booked, but I am having a hard time with Saturday lunch and Memorial Day lunch. Not too much appears to be open and I do not like Eggs Benedict, or the usual brunch type crap. Any suggestions?

    The "brunch type crap" in New York might just be a *tad* better than what you're used to. Try Norma's in Le Parker Meredien. Good French toast, although even the most basic entrees are going to cost $20. As far as lunches go, plenty of places should be open that serve sophisticated food, at least on Saturday. If it's open, the Park Avenue Cafe is always very reliable. Note that many of the top restaurants are closed Sunday afternoon, though.

    La Goloue on Mad at 65th is pretty good for a liquid lunch before SWI.Le Bilbouquet on 63rd is also fun for brunch.

    Town at the Chambers Hotel is quite good. You can opt for the brunch or lunch depending on your tastes http://www.townnyc.com

    Thanks guys. I used to live in New Orleans and frequently ate at the restaurant that pretty much invented fancy breakfasts and Sunday brunch, Brennan's, so I am not interested in Norma's. By the way, Norma's was the name of the world-famous New Orleans whorehouse that closed in the early 1960s.
      Some good suggestions here, though. I have eaten prior weekend or holiday lunches at both Balthazar and Town; they were mostly brunch, especially the latter. I also have eaten prior weekend or holiday lunches at the Park Avenue Cafe when David Burke was there. It had a little more real lunch food.
    I am going to LCB Brasserie for Sunday lunch, but I do not know what to expect in the way of choices. I may try a deli for Saturday or Monday lunch. Is Katz's open on Saturdays?

    What about the Union Square CafÃ[​IMG]?

    They seem to do pretty much everything well, and I have been in for late breakfast/ early lunch on a weekend.

    Katz's is kosher, isn't it? So it would be closed on Saturday.
    I second the dim sum recommendations.

    Chuck Berry pretty much invented Rock n Roll. Doesn't mean a lot of other people didn't do it a hell of a lot better.

    Katz isn't Kosher. 2nd avenue is.
    Both are open on Saturdays.

    What about just a good old fashioned burger at Jackson Hole? Much better than the Vortex.
