9/11 Memorial on Saturday

I am visiting the 9/11 Memorial on Saturday afternoon and am looking for some lunch time recs within a half hour area or short cab ride. All prices and cuisines are possible, from casual to sit down and inexpensive to pricey. I have around 1 1/2 hours to get lunch around 11:30 to 1:30.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I'd do Bouley. Great food, beautiful room. The $55 5-course lunch prix fixe is a great deal.

    1. The interesting thing about this question is not necessarily one of location or food quality. The issue may be what type of meal one would be in the mood for either before or after such a somber and solemn activity. While Cheeryvisage's Bouley rec can't be faulted on quality and value (although one may question whether 5 courses and travel time to/from Tribeca can be fit into 2 hours), I myself may not be in the mood for such a meal after visiting, say, the Vietnam Memorial or Pearl Harbor. If the weather allows, a short stroll to the World Financial Center's waterfront would provide lower quality eats but perhaps more of an opportunity for decompression and reflection.

      1. Where are you coming from? For example, if you're coming from the Lower East Side, we might make recommendations in that area instead...
