lunch around penny lane mall area

Was thinking maybe La Tavola or Escoba. What would you guys recomend?

  1. Better get to these before penny lane is demolished in early 07- they have to vacate at the end of November if I'm not mistaken.

    I heartily recommend you venture a block west and try Opus on 8.

      Oh that's right, they are tearing down Penny Lane before too long. Opus on 8 is that right behind the Chicago Chophouse? I know they are in the middle of construction on the other corner.

    2. I dont like either Tavola or Escoba much. Mango Shiva if I had to choose something on that block...otherwise, swear to god, ever had the lobster mac n' cheese at the Met? so good, but a bit of a tranquilizer lunch.

      1. What is going in place of Penny Lane?

          A massive two-tower project- the taller one will be a little taller than Bankers Hall.
