      Wall & Water in the Andaz Hotel.
      For a great beer selection - I don't know if they've started a food menu yet - at Fraunces Tavern.
      Check out restaurants/bars along Stone Street
      Les Halles

      1. re: bronwen

        For a nicer meal, I second Wall&Water.

        A lot of the places to eat in the area focus on lunch or are stodgy (and pricey!). Not a goldmine. Although, if you're looking for a quick, tasty, cheap lunch BAOGUETTE. I worked in the area for a while and went there at least once a week.

          Third for Wall & Water
          Adding: Bridge Cafe, Leo's Bagels

      1. Pickin's are really slim in this neighborhood.

        Benny's Thai on the corner of Gold & Fulton... Just don't go for the steam table.

        1. Strong second for SHO, Adrienne's (though Harry's Italian is a close second), and Wall & Water. For Steak, in addition to those mentioned, add MarkJoseph (a bit of a walk) or Delmonico's. Right across Stone from Adrienne's is the Vintry--small plates, great wines, large bills. (Indeed, the suggestion from Bronwen to "check out" the restaurants on Stone Street is a good one; most are quite pedestrian, but within a long block you have 16 different possibilities) If value is in your Venn diagram, consider Ulysses for the daily luncheon carvery offerings. Should you be staying over the weekend, Harry's (@ Hannover Sq) has a great Sat brunch (closed Sun) as does the aforementioned Ulysses on Sunday. If a short cab ride is allowed, include the River Cafe, with great food and one of the best views on the planet. Please let us know what you end up doing and how it all rates.

          2. I haven't eaten in the Sophie's Cuban at 73 New Street in the Wall Street district, but the one on Chambers Street has been consistently good and relatively cheap; and I've eaten there many times over the years. Very crowded for lunch during the week, but I haven't had a problem at any other time. I don't know if they deliver, but the one on Chambers St. does have take-out and I presume the one down on New Street does too..
