Lunch around the Union Square area
I'm looking for a place to take a foodie client from out of town to lunch. We have a meeting a little south of Union Square and I'm looking for somewhere in that general area-price and ethnicity are not really a concern....just something unpretentious.
I highly recommend Tocqueville. Superb French-inspired New American cuisine, good service, understated elegant decor, and not a hint of pretentiousness. Even for those who are not price-conscious, the $24 3-course prix-fixe is an absolute steal for food of this high quality. There is an a la carte menu as well.
