Lunch around Arthur Avenue on Friday

Looking for a place to have a good sit-down lunch in the Arthur Avenue neighborhood.
We are a group of about 12 women who will be coming from the Botanical Gardens.

  1. Zero Otto Nove, which is the newest restaurant from the same chef who owns Roberto's, is delicious. I actually liked that lunch better than my lunch at Roberto's.
    If you're looking for just a classic red sauce place, Pasquale Rigoletto's at the end of Arthur Avenue is very good as is Mario's. I believe they all can accomodate a party of 12.
    After lunch, stop in any bakery and grab some delicious pastries. You really can't go wrong with any place, but my favorite is Egidio's which is around the corner on 187th street. They also have seating, but the group may have to split up to fit. The coffee and cappucino there is also excellent.
