Hi fellow bee’s!
I am getting married in Manhattan next May and we are looking for a very casual Sunday morning breakfast place. We are going to be staying near TriBeCa or SoHo and would ideally like to be able to walk to the restaurant. I am having such a hard time finding a place that is casual and not a “foo-foo” New York brunch place for $70 pp. Does anyone have ideas for a breakfast place that’s like coffee, eggs and bacon for like $20-25pp….? Any ideas are much appreciated!!!

@jsbwedding: If you don’t get the information you need, look on the New York Chowhounds Board. The challenge will be that most inexpensive places do not accommodate 100 people.
Do a search and read previous posts first. If you don’t find the name of a suitable place, post a request for suggestions.

Have you checked yelp? I don’t think you’ll have much luck finding a place for under $35-40/pp even for breakfast, but you might. It’s going to just take some googling and calling.

@jsbwedding: Have you looked at The Bistro Chat Noir?

Your best bet would maybe going into a small restaurant that doesn’t normally do breakfast and see if they can put something together for you. One of my bridal showers was at this cute little pub called Mary O’s in the East Village. We had the whole place to ourselves and didn’t have to buy it out since they weren’t normally open at that time. Good luck!

@jsbwedding: hee hee I loled when I saw inexpensive and Manhattan in one line. A food cart is your best bet.

hah. Yea, finding an inexpensive place is super hard!!!
Thanks for the suggestions…I am looking in to all of them. So far though, I havent found a place for cheaper than $40pp. Finding a place that isn’t typically open sounds like a good idea @brooklynwife.
Keep the ideas coming!
Thanks fellow bees!!!

@jsbwedding: Woud you be willing to have your guests come to Brooklyn?
However, I’m not sure that you will find something for $20-25 in NYC or Brooklyn generally even if it is breakfast/brunch. $35-40 sounds more reasonable to me. Because you still have to take into consideration tax/service fees.

@bklynbridetobe: I love going to Brooklyn, but I think it would be hard since I have like 80 people coming from out of state. Theyre mostly Floridians, and will barely know how to get a cab lol Im trying to stick with something in Manhattan.

Try Kittichai in Soho! Also look at Calle Ocho on the UWS.

@JrzyGurl: Kittichai is such a good place and great prices but apparently theyre closing since a new management company is taking over 🙁 Im going to look up Calle Ocho though!

@jsbwedding: Aww shucks, good luck! Also check out Gabriela’s on the UWS and Osteria Cotta. Gabriela’s is nice and big, and should fit the bill. Osteria is smaller, but cozy and so so so good.

Have you thought about going to a place in Jersey City or Hoboken? They are both easily accessible by public transportation, will be cheaper than Manhattan, and you can hopefully find a place on the Hudson and your view can be NYC.

@jsbwedding: We’re getting married next May in NYC too, on May 17 actually! It will be a destination wedding for us, so about 99.8% of our guests are coming from Louisiana! Just curious, are you hosting any group activities? We’re trying to play with ideas!
