Greetings: I'd really appreciate a few recommendations. I'm looking for a good place for lunch in the West Village/Chelsea area for one of my days. For the next day, I'm also looking for another good lunch spot up around the International Center for Photography. Later that same day, I'm meeting a friend for dinner at Bar Boulud, and I'd like to have a great bar to hang out in for a few hours before meeting up with my friend (rather than travelling back downtown where I'm staying and then heading up to midtown again). Does that make sense? Any advice much appreciated. As for the food, I'm open to just about anything -- authentic, "ethnic," something NYC -- all good. Not looking for super fancy, but something memorable would be lovely. Thanks!
