Saturday lunch not too far from the W hotel

love2cookmb Jun 11, 2010 08:43 AM

I need a recommendation for a Saturday lunch for a small group not too far from the W hotel on Lexington. It is supposed to rain so I don't want to walk too far.

Cuisine is open, good food since this is a foodie meetup and someone is traveling from Cali, price inexpensive to moderate, maybe something a little fun where we can sit for a while and have a few drinks.

This will be for tomorrow. I'm hoping I have enough time to get some responses.

    Here are some ideas: Pampano, Avra, Dos Caminos or Wollensky Grill

      Pampano does not serve lunch on Saturday. Too bad because he food's very good.

      Saturday inexpensive lunch in that neighborhood is tough.

      Maybe Menchanko Tei on 45th between 3rd and Lex? If you are willing to walk a bit further, Grand Central Oyster Bar might be fun (although I have found much of the food to be merely ok -- the raw bar and oyster roasts are good). Also, I think Obao is open on Saturdays (52nd between 2nd and 3rd).
