This was not my first time at 50 Warren. They offer a buffet style Mother's day brunch every year and they keep getting better at it.
I found that this year they have improved on several aspects. It is a very large and rather anonymous hotel ballroom, but they have managed to make it more personal this year than in the previous occasions. Maybe it was the improved lighting and the new linens and furniture in the room. The food was very good, but I give it only 4 stars because around 1:30 PM some options ran out on the stations, especially the desserts, and they were not replenished quickly enough.
I prefer this venue at Mother's day over other places because the price is right for the value offered and the size of the hall makes it less crowded and more enjoyable than many other hotels that offer brunch in this area.
