Since it is cold outside (finally) any suggestions for a nice, cozy place for lunch for two women?
What part of town? What type of food?
My first thoughts were:
La Madeleine (esp. near the fireplace, or in the back)
Steeping Room in the Domain (fabulous tea menu, yummy sandwiches)
Cafe 1886 at the Driskill
Try Bess Bistro (500 West 6th Street). Cozy basement with gas lighting and a fireplace. Decent food. Owned by Sandra Bullock, but don't expect to see her.
