UWS Business Lunch?

  • 9

Hi, from Boston here and will be around Broadway and 79th to take a couple of clients out for lunch. Any suggestions for that area? Something moderately priced with decent food but not too noisy would be great, any cuisine considered as long as the place is relatively quiet and in the area (1-4 block radius). Thanks!

      Nice Matin can get very noisy - but should be fine at lunch time. 79th and Amsterdam. Telepan is also a great choice, but not open for lunch on monday or tuesday.

    2. I went to a business lunch at Telepan, which is a bit out of your radius - I think 69th and Columbus - but it has a $25 three course prix fixe lunch, is elegant and quiet with excellent food.

      1. Cesca would be my choice.

          1. Take a look at the Neptune Room and see if it fits your definition of "moderately priced." If it does, I highly recommend it.

            1. Cesca is def closer to your destination than Telepan is. In terms of food, I like both.

              Ouest would be my vote actually, 84th and Broadway.

              1. Thanks for all your responses---at this point I'm leaning toward Nice Matin. BTW here are some updates on some of the other venues mentioned:
                Ouest: Lunch Mon-Thu only, no lunch menu on Website
                Telepan: Lunch Wed-Fri only (brunch SatSun), prix fixe now $28
                Cesca: Does not serve lunch
                Nice Matin: Lunch Mon-Fri

                  how about isabella's? check it out on menupages.com.
                  i've heard mixed reviews on cesca. i've never been there myself
                  primarily b/c of the reviews.
