Late Lunch with buzz

There are a lot of great places open for lunch that do a brisk busines between, say, 1pm and 2:30pm and then essentially wind down to closing before reopening for dinner. Then there are restaurants that either stay open all day, even between lunch and dinner, or that have a lingering lunch crowd and so stay buzzing through to the evening. If I'm in search of a later lunch, I want the second type of place so that my lunch companions and I do not feel like the last diners standing. I wonder if others might add to this list of Manhattan lunch places with good food and good buzz, where you can eat and drink late into a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon and feel right at home.

I'll start the list with a few favorites in this category and would very much appreciate other suggestions:

-Balthazar
-Lupa
-Otto
-Casa Mono, sometimes, although other days I've been there it got completely dead in the later afternoon

    Try The Modern Bar Room or The Breslin.
