Lunch on Sunday

  • 9

Looking for a fun place to take an out of town guest on Sunday. Somewhere not too trendy so that we can get in. Just looking for good food and comfortable atmosphere with something different.

  1. Neighborhood? Price? Food style? Lunch or Brunch? Buffet?

      That is the thing. We will likely have a car. So, the neighborhood up to about 96th street is fine. PRobably more of a lunch place than a brunch place and no buffet. This is a close friend so I am not that concerned with price. I am really looking for something that gives her a great experience and if possible something different.

    2. Same question. My friend says "My friend Paul say there's a great vegetarian place at Amsterdam and 92nd street (?) with outstanding pancakes." Three of our four diners are vegetarian, but that's rarely a big deal for a brunch place, outstanding pancakes would be good anywhere (and #4 would love good bacon).

      1. Union Square Cafe is a great lunch! American, easy and good. Also, what about Cafeteria in Chelsea? It's a little sceney though-so it may not be what you're looking for. I'd go 2nd Avenue Deli or maybe Schillers on the LES.

        If you're looking for something really different, you should do Dim Sum in Chinatown at the Golden Unicorn. Its a huge banquet hall and the food is amazing. Its certainly a unique experience!

          All have lunch deals

            EMP and SHO are not open on Sunday.

            1. Deli- Katz's (obviously) rami rami rami. I'm just a deli/lunch guy
              Pizza- Giorgio's (Upper East) I prefer the bolognese pie with a cold Boylan soda
              Chinese_ Great NY Noodletown (Bowery & Bayard) salt baked soft shell crab, best wonton soup, great duck. (and its a few doors away from the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory)
              Italian- Manganaro (37th & 9th) great sandwiches and italian deli meats
              Cuban- Cafe Con Leche (Upper West)
              BBQ- Diasy May's (46th & 11th) AMAZING oklahoma jumbo beef rib, beans, sweets, sweet tea.

                Noodletown and Katz's are good anytime, but we totally disagree on Cafe Con Leche. Insipid, overpriced food.
