Lunch in The West Village

I will be in the west village Saturday around lunch time. I had wanted to eat at Perry St., but they are closed for a wedding. Any suggestions - price, cuisine, and walking distance aren't that much of an issue. I had thought about Mary's fish camp, but assume it will be crowded. Thank you.

  1. How about Snack Taverna on Bedford and Morton? They are located on a lovely corner for people-watching and as good as their menu is during the week, the weekend trumps it by offering delicious omelettes and french toast that will knock your socks off. In addition they offer great salads and sandwiches/souvlakis if you're in the mood for that sort of thing. Try the Eggs Avgolemono, not to be missed!

    1. Extra Virgin, Tartine, Morandi are all good.

        I like extra virgin and tartine but they're both mobbed for brunch. I like wallse a lot, it's not crowded.

          Wallse is a great alternative to Perry St. They do a great lunch, and like lanadai says, it's never crowded.

      2. Blue Ribbon Bakery on Downing Street --- the weather isn't supposed to be great so it may not be too crowded (no reservation for less than 5, I think).

        1. Considering you were considering Perry St., you may be looking for lunch, not brunch. If so, I recommend Sant'Ambroeus on W. 4th or the Spotted Pig, which is much mellower for lunch.

            I second Spotted Pig for a weekend lunch--much easier to get in to during the day than the evening and they have a solid lunch menu.

          2. Mary's Fish Camp is so good. Once I got there 15 minutes before they open and was the first in line to get in. It's worth it.
