Visiting from SF, need lunch on Labor Day Sunday
I've tried to search the board and Menu Pages for ideas for Sunday lunch on Sept 6th. We're staying at the Bryant Park Hotel in Murray Hill, going to Serge for dinner on Sat nite. Need lunch (not breakfast, not brunch) ideas for the area. Not completely tied to the immediate area, but will be 8 people (4 in their 70's, healthy, but you know, not up for a hike, per se -- taxi ok) Thinking Murray Hill, Gramercy or surrounding.
For food: salads, lots of veggies, fish, light fare. Probably not too ethnic. Price not so much of a consideration, but probably won't go to Eleven Madison Park range.....
Most restaurants that serve brunch have menus that include both breakfast and lunch dishes. While there are not an abundance of restaurants that have a strictly lunch menu, here are a few that do. The quality of the food ranges from very good to excellent, and all can accommodate a group of 8.
Maze at the London, Gordon Ramsay's more casual restaurant, on 54th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. - French
Kellari Taverna, on 44th St., b/t 5th & 6th Avs. - Greek with a seafood focus
Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av. - Homestyle Italian-American
Il Punto, on the corner of 9th Av. & 38th St. - Italian
If you want suggestions for places with a brunch menu that includes lunch dishes, let me know.
