Weekend lunch...midtown west
An old friend will be coming into NYC (Port Authority) over the weekend and we are planning on meeting for a casual lunch. ISO someplace tasty, moderately priced, nice atmosphere, not touristy, quiet enough to carry on a conversation.
Anyone have a favorite?
Osteria Gelsi, on the corner of 9th Av. & 38th St., serves delicious Pugliese cuisine. Good service and pleasant atmospherics.
West Bank Cafe, on 42nd St., b/t 9th & 10th Avs., serves excellent New American cuisine. On weekends, they offer a brunch menu. Friendly service and comfortable ambiance.
