Help! Need to figure out downtown/small plates lunch by noon!

Ok, so far we're considering a Momofuku or Fatty Crab. I mentioned Boqueria, but my out of town cousin nixxed it. He also didn't want to do Casa Mono again since he's been a couple times. We're looking for Union Square and south...

Thoughts? Help? Will be able to check this 'til noon today.

  1. Vintage Irving; Bar Jamon; Pipa...All small plates in the irving/US area.

    1. I wouldn't describe Momofuku as small plates, though I suppose that's because I prefer the box lunch over their other offerings. If you want small plates, I would favor Fatty Crab and consider Pipa or La Nacional.

        1. Sorry, I should have been more specific. I think ideally we want NOT Spanish small plates. I think we're leaning toward Fatty Crab. I went once and it was pretty good. But have read so many negative reviews about it here that I hesitate to bring him there...
