Edmonton lunch reco near the Art Gallery

Coming in for the Fringe Festival/Art Gallery next weekend and I need a lunch reco for Sunday near the Gallery.

I would have gone to Zinc...but they only offer brunch on Sunday and we want lunch....not brunch.

Price no object. Would prefer something on the nicer side - no chains or diners.

Suggestions appreciated!

    Sunday for lunch may be tough and again, it being a Sunday I expect means most of the hotels will be in "brunch mode" an aside, I loathe brunch and usually want "lunch" myself.

    I am not sure if Hardware Grill is open for lunch on the week-end. Madison's Grill might be an option but they may be "brunch mode" as will the Hotel Macdonald.

    I am "drawing a blank" on other options. Moriarty's Wine bar may be closed as will be Sorrentino's downtown and 100. L'Azia in Edmonton Centre West is probably not what you are looking for.

    Sorry I cannot be of assistance, let us know what you find.

    Culina Mill Creek may be an option because I like their quirky food and atmosphere but we generally stopped going on the week-end because if though it is from their menu is was too "brunchy" for me...emphasis on eggs and I would rather have their roast beef and blue cheese and chocolate dinner feature than eggs.

      I'm with Bob - all the places I can think of are either closed for lunch that day or are doing brunch.

      You could always go to Chinatown for dim sum! (Although it probably doesn't fit what you are looking for either.)

        what about the Holt's Cafe in Holt Renfrew? Also, perhaps the Wildflower Grill has their lunch menu as well as brunch? Is Sabor Divino open on Sundays (couldn't find info on website).
        Good luck....sorry this is a tough one!
