Best lunchtime wine bar / pub food south of 23rd?
Plan to spend 3 days walking/exploring south of 23rd. As a single traveler, after walking all morning, I enjoy a sit down lunch usually in a wine bar, pub, lounge, etc. Looking for appetizers /small plates that are not the usual everyday wings, fries, spinach dip, sliders, etc. Hoping for a variety of suggestions I can look for depending on where I am at -- Financial District, Chelsea, East Village, Greenwich, etc. I'm flexible to hop on the bus or subway for a good meal -- afterall.. for me, food is a huge part of the experience when visiting NYC. A couple of my favorite anytime stops are Michael Jordan's and Artisanal Bistro if that helps.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Terroir in East Village, but they also just opened in Tribeca - cute wine bar with food. Apotheke for artisanal drinks in Chinatown. Epistrophy in Nolita is a cute cafe that serves both food/wine/coffee. In the LES, I like Inoteca, Kampuchea, Kuma Inn. West Village - Turks and Frogs (also has an outpost in Tribeca) for wine/snacks, Corner Bistro for a burger, Spotted Pig and Wilfie & Nell.
These are all casual places which i think is what you may be looking for? Let us know if you want more formal dining (e.g. WD40, Babbo, etc).

If your legs bring all the way down to the financial district, here are three to consider: Ulysses (www.ulyssesfolkhouse.com) on Stone Street. The Vintry (www.vintrynyc.com) right across the street. And, Nelson Blue, a few blocks away (www.nelsonblue.com). There are actually about 10 restaurants on Stone Street with tables filling the walk street. Depending of your tastes and pocket book, one or the other could certainly take care of you. NB has open windows and outdoor seating as well; their light skewers and other light fare is very unusual.
