City Hall area dining tips?

Will be in NYC for the day for meetings near City Hall. In my NYC resident days, I used to go to Joe's Shanghai when I had jury duty but it's been years since I've been downtown. Would appreciate any tips for great lunchtime places - upscale or not. Asian or Italian preferred since I will be with coworkers who seem not particularly adventurous (but I would push the issue for a fabulous rec). Thanks!

Joe's Shanghai

  1. A short walk up Chambers St to the Smyth Hotel, Plein Sud is a good place to eat. Choices for all.
    Odeon isnt far. or Walker's has great burgers. or even closer is Forlini's on Baxter St.
