Lunch near High Line

f
Francis Dec 28, 2011 07:07 PM

I am traveling to NYC for 4 days next week. I'll have some time to myself on Friday and Saturday afternoon and thought I would check out the High Line park. (I live in Chicago and they are thinking of putting someting similar very close to my house). I would love to find a place for lunch - possibly meeting a friend- that won't break the bank but would be a nice cap to a walk on the park.

Also, I am looking for a place to meet about 7-10 people on Friday night for dinner that has good food and wine. A few years back we had dinner at Crispo with friends (on recommendations from NYC hounds) and everyone raved. Would love to introduce New Yorkers to another great place that they might not know about.

    You have many places to choose from in Chelsea Market. There's Thai, Friedman's Lunch, a farm to table restaurant, you could sit in the bar at Colicchio & Sons. The Tippler bar isn't too far for a cocktail.. I'm not sure how far, but the Spotted Pig might be a good stop too. I just ate in the bar at Colicchio last week and they had key lime doughnuts with coconut ice cream.

    one more thing you might want to check out, totally not near the Hi Line.

    there is a giant slide display right now!!!

    My photo is Friedman's Lunch, matzo ball soup and Rosé. Not just for breakfast anymore.

      The Standard is a good place for lunch near the High Line, so is Paradou, or Pastis. I don't know if Morimoto is open for lunch.

            I went to Red Cat for dinner once. Perfectly OK, but nothing more, and overpriced was the verdict of all three of us. In that neighborhood, I tend to go to Half King when I want something inexpensive, and when I don't mind spending a bit more, Cookshop, which is generally good though not fully consistent across its menu (I have had very good meals there but found the scallops disappointing on my last visit). Grand Sichuan is an old standby, of course, but it's a little bit further from the storage facility at 21st St. near 10th that is my usual reason for being in that neighborhood.

            Is your lunch for Friday or Saturday? You'll find many places serving a brunch menu on Saturday, FWIW.

                An very pleasurable 5-minute walk from the south end of the park, Perry Street has an excellent lunch deal: 3 courses for $28. They also have an early/late (before 6pm or after 9:30pm) dinner fixed price menu for $38. Great looking dining room. I had a very good lunch there recently; chef is the son of Jean Georges.

                  my recommendation for both meals is La Promenade des Anglais on 23rd St/10th Ave...delicious Provencal French food...lovely wine list...and it's only been open about 3 months, so there's a good chance it'll be a nice new discovery for your NYC friends...

                    This certainly is a nice new discovery for me, and thanks for putting this on my map. Looking through their website certainly appears promising.

                        SImon, La Promenade des Anglais sounds good, especially since I was recently in Nice, France, i'm in the mood for Provencal French fod

                          Cool...Provencal (along w/ Corsican) is probably my favorite regional French cuisine...i doubt it will measure up to what you had in Nice, but it definitely adds to the downtown Manhattan options...the fried baby artichokes w/ anchovy sauce are particularly yummy (though rich and salty and best eaten w/ lots of olive bread)...
