I'll be meeting up with a girlfriend in the city in a couple of weeks, and I'm looking for a late-ish (2-3 p.m.?) Saturday lunch or brunch spot. This is her weekend away from a toddler, and she wants to spa and shop (and since it's her weekend away I will do whatever she wants!), so I think we need to stay in that neighborhood (1/2 mile in any direction?).
I think we'll be looking for your basic salads/sandwiches/brunches, with a glass or two of wine, and would like to keep it under $100, including tax/tip.
I have read down the board, but it seems like most recommended spots are further south than we will be. If there is nothing good in the area, I will grab a cab and head to one of the 'hound-ish recommendations elsewhere :), but in the interests of ease, any suggestions?
