Lunch in Soho (with cocktails perhaps)

I'm looking to celebrate a friend's birthday tomorrow for lunch. Ideally somewhere in Soho - the type of food is not important as long as there are lunchy items (salads and sandwiches) - - I'm not looking for a big steak. Any suggestions?? I've been to Jane, the Cupping Room, and Balthazar... any other suggestions??

      Thank you for your replies. We actually ended up at Balthazar and had an excellent lunch with fantastic wine (I had a great Riesling). It was very crowded and we were delighted to be seated right away. My companion had the Nicoise salad and ate every bite. I was more in the mood for meat - so I opted for the burger. It was a little undercooked (I ordered medium and seemed more like medium-rare) but nevertheless deliciously seasoned with perfect fries. The service was good; however our one issue was that our waitress kept trying to rush us. Oh well -- overall I would definitely return -- and get dessert next time!!

          Forgot to mention, the coctails are the best!

            Bread on Spring St is great for lunch
