Please fill in the blanks ...

Hello - I will be in NYC staying at the Standard hotel with 5 girlfriends (not sure if age matters but we are in our early 30's) ... our chow planning is as follows but I need help filling in the blanks:

Friday lunch: ?
Friday Dinner: The Standard Grill
Saturday lunch: Bistro Bagatelle
Saturday dinner: Abe & Arthur
Sunday lunch: ?
Sunday dinner: ?

Based on what we have booked so far, could you recommend lively restaurants with great food for the spots above? I was thinking La Esquina on Sunday lunch? Being that we are from Vancouver we aren't interested in sushi / asian cuisine or seafood restaurants :P

We would like to stick close to the Meatpacking and/or Soho districts for lunch on Friday and Sunday.

Thanks so much!!!! Any and all help is really appreciated.
