SoHo Saturday lunch spot

I am going shopping in SoHo with two girlfriends on Saturday. We need a great lunch recommendation! I say "lunch" and emphasize "Saturday" because it seems that lots of tasty restaurants in the area focus on eggs on the weekends. We want more "lunch" than "brunch."

I know I'm being picky, but any suggestions? Like a great tapas place or something with unusual/creative food. Not a diner- we want a nice meal.

Thanks!!!

Most brunch menus include both breakfast and lunch type food options. Bistro Les Amis and Lola's are good options. At Lola's, honey glazed shrimp (and grits) are divine. Have also had their fried oysters, very good.

At Bistro Les Amis I like the mussels. http://www.bistrolesamis.com/

Oscar's Cafe is supposed to be good but haven't tried it.

when we went to soho for my birthday 2 years ago we had a fun, delicious and crazy expensive meal at Cipriani's. It has a great vibe and perfect for people watching. We thought the food was delicious, but others say it's not great.

Post-trip follow up:
We ended up having brunch at a place called Landmarc in TriBeCa that was very good. It was the only place I found that served the lunch menu, in addition to breakfast, on the weekends. We ended up ordering starters from the lunch menu that were OK, but all of us actually opted for breakfast entrees and they were all excellent. The place was really beautiful and the service excellent, too!

Later in the day we hit The Cub Room for hors d'oeuvres and some wine, but were a little disappointed in the food (although the location and ambience were great for 3 ladies since we sat in a corner booth and could look out the big windows).

The best thing we ate in SoHo, however, was Vosges Chocolate, which is both ridiculously expensive and crazy tasty. We stopped in to the little store for some respite from the crazy sidewalk and had a few pieces of chocolate and some incredible hot (white) chocolate milk as we sat in this gorgeous little seating area. Worth the (nearly) $10 for 2 pieces of chocolate!
