Nice Matin is a French spot with solid options for brunch, lunch, and dinner. We like it best on Friday nights, when they serve a special bouillabaisse (seafood soup). They also have a substantial gluten-free menu. The food isn’t cheap and the wine list is impressive, so head here for a special occasion.

Good Enough To Eat
The Upper West Side may not be flush with noteworthy dining out options, but they certainly have one meal on lockdown – brunch. Good Enough To Eat has been an institution up in these parts for a good 30 years, and a spot we'll happily go to for simple, heavy handed home cooking.
