Need business dining restaurant within walking distance of 53rd & 3rd

I need recommendations for a business dining restaurant that has a private section within walking distance of 53rd & 3rd. This is for ~15 ppl, and roughly $65pp. Thanks.

  1. Fresco is at 51st and Mad. They have great food and private rooms, but I don't think you'll meet the $65 per person requirement.

    1. Brasserie, but it's more than $65/pp.

      Our Place II (great Chinese) on 55th [lex and 3rd] will put you at a large table in the back of the restaurant and will keep it below $65.

      In general, $65/pp is VERY tough in Manhattan for a business dinner. Buiness dinners general mean: a private room, lots of drinks, and good food. The drinking KILLS the budget. And really, so does a private room charge.

      (Maybe SIDECAR at P. J. Clarks?)

      1. Have you thought about lever house? It might be out of budget though.

          VONG - if you go early I think they have a pretheater menu.

          1. Maple Garden (53rd between 2nd and 3rd) restaurant is quiet, within budget, service is attentive and there is private dining area in the front.
