Best Old School Fancy Sunday Brunch for a wonderful grandmother?

My 95 year old Italian grandmother (Think Joe Pesci's mom in Goodfellas but way older) is coming into Manhattan for her birthday.

This is a woman who grew up in a village in Italy without running water and now calls me up and wants to discuss whether or not men in New York actually wear skinny jeans like she reads in the newspaper. She's an amazing woman and I love her very much. I only mention this to lure you into putting some thought into your answers.

I want to take her out to Sunday Brunch at a very fancy but old school place. She won't enjoy anything modern or trendy.

I'm thinking the Waldorf or something like that. Please give me your suggestions. You'll be doing a good thing for a great lady!
