  • Between adventures in Central Park, visiting local museums, and nearby shopping a trip to Sarabeths is a must.  Sarabeth’s was founded in 1981 by Sarabeth Levine and has since grown to five locations in the borough of Manhattan.  Popularly known for their weekend brunch, it is also a great dinner destination and a New York City landmark for visitors from around the world.  Their breakfast menu features incredible pancakes and French toast, to home fries and park and apple sausages, as well as classic American fare.

    Maps / Directions

    To get from The Mark Hotel to Sarabeth's for brunch, we recommend one of two routes.

  • Option 1, "The Scenic Route," will take you through Central Park. This is great if you haven't seen Central Park or want to take a beautiful walk and work up an appetite.
  • Option 2 on the other hand, "Alongside the Park," is a straight shot down down Central Park East and likely a faster and more straightforward journey.

  • Option 1: The Scenic Route
