Spring themed menu?

Seeking fiddle head ferns, sorrel, morels, ramps and other such spring treats! Vegetarian- or pescetarian-friendly recommendations would be appreciated very much. Lunch or Brunch for $50 pp, not including alcohol / tax / tip and, and party of two. The Green Table and Northern Spy came to mind, but always happy to expand my horizons.

Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure how formal/casual you want, your preferred type of cuisine, etc, so knowing that may help narrow the options. The first thing that came to mind was Jean Georges.

    The last time I was at Jean Georges for lunch (about 3 weeks ago), the captain told me that they were going to launch a massively overhauled menu in 2-3 weeks, focusing very heavily on spring ingredients and replacing about 3/4 of the entire menu.

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of that, and their online menu is notoriously out-of-date and is often completely different from the actual menu. Has anyone seen the menu in the past week or so?

    In any case, lunch is an incredible deal and they have some wonderful vegetarian and pescetarian dishes. In fact, their vegetarian options are often some of the best on the menu (in my opinion), and I've had several of my top vegetarian dishes there.
