Late lunch near Spruce and 12th Street?

I'm arriving tomorrow at 2:30 pm and looking for ideas for a late lunch near Spruce and 12th.

Our budget can go up to $60 per person before drinks, tax and tip.

Not picky about cuisine. Anything interesting within a 15 minute walk?

      The lunch menu looks amazing, Thanks!

    2. If you can get there before lunch ends at 3 (perhaps call ahead?), I'd suggest Barbuzzo http://barbuzzo.com/barbuzzo/

        Barbuzzo's menu looks great too. I've read about their stellar budino in the New York Times. Thanks!

          I did in fact go to Barbuzzo and loved the uovo pizza and the budino.

          I also dropped by GTC to purchase a couple of bottles of wine. The desserts looked amazing there but I didn't get to try any.

            My favorite decadent lunch in the area is GTC. Always get a few plates to share, but one must be one of the Spanish Ham courses. Have a bottle of Spanish red from the State Store and the best French macaroons I've ever tasted and I am the happiest of campers.

              with the exception of the macarons, which are so good, i find the other desserts prettier than they actually taste :(

              the state wine store is pretty awesome tho- their recommendations are fantastic and i havent had a bad bottle there
