Park Avenue Tavern
Park Avenue Tavern holds a special place in our heart as it is where we hosted our launch party a while back. It's the classiest "tavern" you'll ever go to, and is especially great if you need to accommodate a group of any size, small to large. Book the Barrel Room downstairs for a big birthday or baby/bridal shower. Since finding legit restaurants near Grand Central can be a chore, make sure you bookmark Park Avenue Tavern as your next midtown spot.
What to Eat
The menu offers a great mix of both breakfast and lunch items. We like the Pastrami Hash, the French Toast and the Hot Ham & Cheese -- their version of a Croque Madame, made double decker style.
What to Drink
Every Saturday and Sunday brunch, Park Avenue Tavern offers half price bottles of wine. Additionally, they serve some of the cheapest brunch cocktails around. A mere $5 will get you a Mimosa, Bellini, 007, Huckleberry Lemonade, or a Sham-pagne (white grape, ginger beer, and pineapple).
Reservations accepted for parties as small as two.
