We are headed to NYC this week and need some recommendations for lunch on Thursday and Friday. We are staying midtown. We don't mind spending $$$ on lunch, but don't want anything stuffy. Meeting old friends who are foodies and we want something interesting, new or funky where we can taste some different things and have some good wines while we just catch up and have fun. Any ideas? Should we just get in a cab and go to Momofuku?
