quiet lunch near Penn Station

Noank Native Nov 24, 2012 08:19 AM

We are meeting my brother at Penn Station on a Saturday in December for lunch--he has a few hours between trains. He has a bad knee so we can't walk too far. Looking for a place where we can sit and talk for an hour or two, and not feel rushed. We're pretty flexible with food types and prices. Just looking for good food and a quiet relaxed atmosphere. Any ideas?

    Tre Dici is on 26th btwn 6th and 7th, 6 blocks away from Penn Station. The room is lovely. Good Italian cuisine. Kind service as well.

      This request often comes up. Penn station area tends to be a bit of a food wasteland, but a 10 minute cab opens up the options immensely.

      I searched "penn" and many threads came up. Perhaps find a few ideas here and then ask for more specific recs?

        Thanks so much for this--I really appreciate the help! I had seem some of the threads, but went back to the link you suggested. I'm thinking Caffe Lugo might work, which I missed the first time around.
