Portland Lunch for Family Gathering

Hello -- my extended family of 9 (including 3 children ages 8-15) are gathering on Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, and we're looking for nice/upscale place for lunch in Portland, Maine. We're hoping for very good food in any price range and atmosphere type, although a quieter place where we can have a conversation would be nice. Thanks for your suggestions!

Just discovered: Public doesn't take reservations for weekend brunch.

Saturday lunch reservation Soho

Thanks for for the great suggestions. It appears that SoHo is lacking in a consistent place. The Dutch menu looks good, but issues of noise are a problem, and they look a little too "chain-like" and too packaged.

Public seems like the best option yet, thanks, sgordon, for the extended review.

The lack of other options makes me think we should eat on our way down from the UWS. We'd like to eat about Noon. Anything worth looking out on the way south for same party of 5 with teenager and grandparents?

What do you think about Keste pizza before SoHo shopping? We're going to Bar Boloud for pre-concert dinner Saturday night, so lighter lunch may be better.

I'm gonna call Public now to at least get one reservation option set...

Saturday lunch reservation Soho

I'm looking for a place that takes lunch reservations next Saturday for 5 people (including my 15-year-old daughter who is visiting NYC for the first time). We're planning to shop in Soho in the afternoon, and I'd like to start with an interesting lunch (under $30 per person). We're open to any cuisine, and I would like my daughter to have a "this is cool" reaction (yet, I'm sure it will be barely noticeable!). We are traveling with grandparents, so comfortable atmosphere is a little issue. Any ideas? Shopping tips welcome too. Thanks!
