My wife and I are going to be in Manhattan for nine days in late July. We plan 2-4 lunches (for currency reasons) at well renowned Manhattan locations which abound. However on the last trip, we were highly disappointed (in hindsight unprepared)and, save for a friend who pointed us to a delectable dinner at Beacon, poorly advised. Money is really no object; food and friends are the purpose of the visit. So, if it pleases you, a handfull of your favorite high-calibre eateries that serve lunch (if dinner is a must, so be it) to help this Texan out. Thanks in advance!
