Lunch with Wine Pairings?

I'm looking for a prix fixe or chef's tasting lunch with wine pairings.
Wine at noon is twice as nice, right?
Hey, I'm not going to shun a lunch just because it's cheap, but quality is more important than price. We had the $39 lunch prix-fixe and wine at Tocqueville last weekend, for instance, and it blew us away both in taste and in price.
I guess I'm looking for anything and everything, both the special treat and the everyday value.
Another vote for Del Posto, I recently had lunch w/a friend and we did the wine pairings, thought it was a bargain for the $15 they charge, food was really great as well as service.

The staff at Eleven Madison Park do a nice job of pairing glasses of wine with your courses. And they will do half-pours as well. So not "exactly" a wine pairing for a set price, but you can buy a half-glass for each course that the staff pairs based on your food choices and wine preferences.

Great to know about the half-pours! We were wondering if we should just go somewhere we know we like and talk to the sommelier, but we were concerned about exactly how much wine we might find ourselves drinking on a Saturday afternoon.
And EMP has long been on my list of must-haves, anyway. Thanks!
