Working too hard, need a great Saturday lunch

What would you suggest? Boston and environs are fine....looking for a first rate experience. Can be shmancy. All cuisines are welcome.
A lot of lunch options on Saturday become brunch. Some thoughts:
Pops -- new, great looking, reasonably priced New American/Eclectic place in the South End with a lunch-y brunch menu.
Bristol -- lobby restaurant of the Four Seasons with a great lunch menu, not too exorbitant.
Cafe at the Taj (fka the old Ritz) -- still doing the traditional New England brunch menu, with a lot of lunch items. Actually pretty fairly priced.
Sel de la Terre -- waterfront Country French, a lunch-tilting brunch menu, very nice.
Beacon Hill Bistro -- a good lunch on Saturday, more American than its French dinner menu, good prices for Beacon Hill.
La Brace -- Italian chop house in the North End, fine grilled steaks, chops, and fish, excellent pastas and seafood, mid-priced.
Reef Cafe for Lebanese -- try the dishes with their amazing garlic paste. Very inexpensive, but first-rate no less.
New Shanghai or Shanghai Gate for classic dou jiang (soy bean milk) and you tiao (fried crullers) along with little dishes of Shanghainese appetizers, I like the shen1 jian1 bao1/pan fried dumplings.
Volle Nolle for sandwiches (I like them all) or oatmeal with grilled bananas, candied walnuts and blackcurrants.
This is going to be another crazy open-ended thread with 100+ listings. Anyway, I'd go to Eastern Standard for a reward-myself lunch. Actually I deserve such a lunch after I end this miserable diet.
do one of the cooking class/lunch combos. there is one on saturday march 10 at radius.
I like Sel de la Terre, Les Zyg, and Union (brunch on Saturdays) for lunch as well.
