We will be up in New York just for the day on Sunday and want to have lunch someplace fun with excellent food and a good wine selection. Any suggestions?

      We will be in soho for part of the day, but are happy to jump on the subway. Price range - anything really - preferably not over $150 for two including wine. We really loved Casa Mono and Bar Jamon. If there is a wine bar that has great food, that would be perfect.

        Fleur de Sel has, I believe, a $24 lunch on Sunday. There's a wine pairing for an extra $15. http://www.fleurdeselnyc.com I think Nougatine at Jean-Georges is open as well.

          While I love Fleur de Sel, the o.p. is asking for someplace "fun," and that's not a word I'd use to describe it. More like low-key and civilized.

          Tia Pol - 10th btween 23rd/22nd. Really good tapas and wine - open for lunch 11-3. Also Las Ramblas on W 4th. Not open till 4pm on Sunday though.

            Lupa (Thompson St. in the Village) should fill the bill. Good food, really good wine at reasonable prices. The place always puts a smile on my face.

              Union Square Cafe by all means

                If you are in Soho you might just want to pop in to Balthazar or Savoy, either of which should be adequate.
