We're cruising from NYC on Sunday 9/2. Need some place that serves lunch (not frou frou brunch with all you can drink mimosas) for a party of 8. Can't be too formal as we'll have our infant and 2.5 year old. Italian, Portugeuse, Greek, Spanish, French, or interesting Asian joints? What about Lincoln? Maybe a Boulud joint?
Lupa may fit the bill. It is casual and I do not think they do brunch like you may find at many other places on a Sunday (you may want to call and verify). They expertly handled our party of 9 a year or so ago on a weekday afternoon for a long late lunch/early dinner. We basically just picked the wine and asked them to have the chef select what we should eat and they should keep bring new dishes and we would tell them when we were full. They handled the request with aplomb, and we had a most enjoyable time.
