Make it casual. You've already hung out with him in a group setting at lunch and at happy hour. This is your chance to be alone with him and to find out more about him.
This is also his chance to get to know you better. Keep in mind, though, that this is not a date. It's just two co-workers having lunch. If this lunch is successful, then proceed to number five.

5. The email banter. Start sending some emails to him during the day. Keep them funny and light. For instance, you could him them about an office rumor you heard and say that you wanted to tell him about it first. You could also pass along a funny email that your friend forwarded to you and tell him that you're forwarding it to him because you know he'll appreciate it.
If he responds positively, you'll probably end up IM’ing back and forth periodically during the day when you're bored. If this stage is successful, then move on to number six.
6. The date. On a Wednesday or Thursday, casually find out what he's doing that Friday night. Tell them you are going out with a bunch of your girlfriends, and that it would be great if he came with some of his guy friends so you could all hang out together. Once again, this is very casual ... but it is also the final telltale sign so you can decide whether or not to ask him out on a date.
Watch carefully how he behaves while you're all out together. If he's making a special effort to hang out with you, then you're in! What Happy Couples Have In Common [VIDEO]
