Need several lunch recs for Sat, Sun & Mon
My wife & I will be in NY this weekend & need some lunch recs in SoHo area for Saturday & Monday. Also need lunch recs in Midtown near Theaters or Midtown East before a Saturday matinee show for Saturday & Sunday. We are foodies, but are not looking to have a formal lunch. Would like a great burger, sushi, great pizza, maybe mediteranean, new american, or thai/vietnamese. We were trying to stay away form the usual delis in the theater district. I was thinking of Savoy or Hundred Acres as possibilities, but wanted more options. Saturday evening we are going to The Mercer Kitchen for dinner & Sunday we are having italian for dinner. I welcome suggestions. Thanks.
Manhattan is not that strong in Vietnamese (too small of an immigrant population demanding high quality foods) or Thai (better in Queens especially now that Rhong Tiam has closed/moved).
Soho lunch, on a Saturday, most places will be serving a brunch menu and some will have pretty large crowds, so make sure you plan ahead. You can actually get a pretty good burger at the seafood restaurant Lure. There's also Arturo's pizza nearby (much better than the nearby Lombardi's although I haven't tried Mezzaluna). I also love lunch at Blue Ribbon Bakery or 'ino, which are quite near Soho if you're nearer to 6th Avenue.
