Saturday Lunch Options

C. Simon | Jul 27, 2005 10:37 AM

Thanks for all the great help so far in planning my trip to NYC.

The one meal during my weekend visit in which I will have to make some concessions is when the family will join us for Saturday lunch. Criteria: (1) Okay for group of eight; (2) okay for three-year-old; (3) will please adventurous diners who rarely get to NYC and seek wow-worthy food; and (4) will satisfy very non-adventurous diners.

Based on direct feedback and other posts on this board, my best bets so far appear to be:

Cacio e Pepe
Eleven Madison Park

I'd love help with those options, or other suggestions meeting the criteria.

Incidentally, I have been to Otto and Lupa (which might meet the criteria), and loved them both, but don't want to go back on this visit.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
