Looking for lunch on July 5 Saturday in union sq or adjacent neighborhoods--west village, chelsea are ok. Prefer contemporary american cuisine (seasonal, regional)...bar, pub, tavern atmosphere is fine.
Price not an option (can't believe I'm saying that!).
But I'm jonesing for a fine cheese plate, or at least a resto that places a focus on artisanal cheeses.
(I don't ask for too much, do I...)
Any thoughts? I know it's a holiday weekend and some places may not be open, but I would appreciate suggestions.
