Weekend lunch/brunch good deal for a nice restaurant
I'm going to be visiting New York the first weekend in November and am looking for restaurants for Saturday lunch and Sunday brunch (or lunch). I am thinking about trying to go somewhere nice that is a good deal for lunch compared to the price of dinner. It doesn't have to be cheap, just a good value compared to dinner. Any ideas? I know a lot of restaurants have deals for weekday lunches, but many of them aren't open for lunch on the weekends. Also, I figure there might be some places that are hard to get in for dinner but might be easier for lunch/brunch.
I don't have any specific types of food I'm looking for or neighborhoods (not sure what activities we're doing yet).
For Saturday, Jean Georges. If you can't get in, maybe Tocqueville.
For Sunday brunch, Minetta Tavern. Very difficult to get in for dinner at a reasonable time, but brunch you can basically waltz right in.

I highly recommend Bouley for lunch on Saturday. The four-course tasting menu is $55 and you get a variety of choices for each course. You also get an amuse to start, a palate cleanser before dessert and petit fours at the end. I've been there multiple times and everything I've had so far has been amazing. Even the bread is delicious and they come around with different selections with each course. If the weather is nice you can walk around Tribeca and Soho afterwards too!
