Inexpensive lunch near Union Square for 12?

Hello, everybody. I’m looking for a relatively inexpensive (but good, of course) lunch place within walking distance of Union Square that can house about 12 people. I have tried calling Cafe Gourmand, but I haven’t been able to get through over the last week or so to make reservations (perhaps they’ll open again after the holidays are over?)

I’m looking for a place that will accommodate both vegetarians and omnivores.

Thanks in advance for your help, and may you have a Happy New Year!

We had a work lunch recently at E&O Kitchen and Bar, which is kind of an Asian fusion place. The food was not bad and also the prices, by SF standards anyway.

There’s also Amber India, I see the lunch buffet price is $28 per their website. I haven’t been there in a long while for the buffet but I remember it being good. Also in that area is Tropisueño for casual counter service Mexican at lunch, Delarosa for pizzas and pastas, and Ippudo for ramen - it is a Japanese chain. I’ve been to work lunches at all of these three and they all worked well for that, and all have vegetarian options.


Thanks so much for these suggestions.

These suggestions are exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks!
