A friend and colleague recently asked me for brunch recommendations in Tribeca. Well I say – as far as options go, you are spoiled for choices! (Tribeca being the most baby-friendly neighborhood in all of downtown Manhattan and all). However, one place that I would always endorse, as you really cannot go wrong any way you slice it, is Sunday brunch at the Tribeca Grand. With a well-curated, classic American buffet menu that includes both sweets from Doughnut Plant and lox from Russ & Daughters (recently featured here), plus live jazz and complimentary children’s film screening – it really is foodie heaven for both grown-ups and kiddos alike.
Food/ Drink tips:
- See here for a full menu, which includes Belgian waffles made to order, baked ham with red chile marinade, kale and onion tart, Russ & Daughters lox, lemon verbena scones with clotted cream, and much much more!
- Personally, I kind of love buffet brunches (especially when you factor in bottom-less mimosas, bellinis, and “grand” marys). If you prefer your beverages bespoke, they also have plenty of house-signature cocktails for the choosing.
- Plus, who doesn’t dig customized omelets and pancakes?
Baby/ Kiddo tips:
- There’s actually street and valet parking available (it being a hotel and all), which is quite a nice option.
- High chairs, changing tables (women’s bathroom only), and stroller parking are all available. I’ve witnessed up close and personal my fellow mamma companion stroll her little guy around in the Church Lounge, underneath the open triangular atrium of the hotel (also a great seating area btw), so you know that you’ve got ample space for maneuvering!
- The children’s screening room and live jazz also lend a nice touch to the overarching brunch experience.
- Lastly (and possibly most importantly), when you’re rolling with munchkins who are very probably picky-eaters, nothing saves the day like buffet options! Don’t like the kale? No problem. Move on to eggs, fruit, and yogurt… you get what I’m saying.
