Inexpensive lunch or cafe close to Avery Fisher Hall?

busybeegal | Mar 19, 2008 04:28 PM

Hi there - looking for a place to go on a Saturday, noonish, inexpensive (no more than $50 for 2 people) place to go on Upper West Side close to Avery Fisher Hall. I'd love to find a nice cafe serving really good soups/salads/sandwiches/desserts - which I know that Le Pain Quotidien kind of qualifies, but I'm going with my mother who will not like the idea of the communal table, and it sounds as though the individual tables are quickly taken.

I'd prefer to stay away from Italian or Mexican if possible - I'm thinking maybe something Euro or American style that just features plain good food - without it resembling a diner.

Any brunches or prix fixe for lunch that I'm missing that would fit a budget as well?

THANKS!!!
