Saturday lunch not too far from the W hotel
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.
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).
