Business Dinner in Midtown
Soliciting advice on the best restaurant to entertain some Wall Street types - a business celebration - but not raucous or stuffy. They are in midtown and getting them back to Grand Central is a factor. Want it to be memorable, not a steak joint but needs to have some mainstream safe choices as well for the less adventurous. Pricing moderate to expensive but no Per Se (assuming one could get in). My thoughts on choices in no particular order are: Pacific Echo, Babbo, Aureole, Biltmore Room, DeGrezia, Craft, Brasserie or Tuscan. I realize this is all over the map both geographically and cuisine-wise, but looking for some direction. Thoughts?
I love Oceana, which is on 54th b/w Madison & Park (about a 10-minute walk from Grand Central) - excellent fish, good atmosphere (business-appropriate, without being stuffy).
Django is on the north-west corner of Lex & 46th. A little more hip than Oceana, very good food, diverse menu, very close to GCT.
In GCT, I like Metrazur (east balcony).
