Birthday lunch for boss
I promised to take my boss to lunch for his birthday. Oh boy. I need an kinda upscale, but not too pricey, good looking, great food, decent wines, vegetarian and/or fin fish friendly, on the exotic side restaurant, not too far from midtown. Something Indian perhaps? Not asking too much am I!
What about Pampano - upscale Mexican food - good fish dishes, in midtown. Nice terrace if the weather is good.
Dawat is one of the city's best Indian restaurants...the service is impeccable. It's on 58th between 2nd/3rd.
I would recommend Mint (50th b/t Lex & 3rd) for the food, decor, service and modern ambiance, and Bay Leaf mostly for the food (56th b/t 5th & 6th). Both Indian. Bay Leaf is much more traditional and has a lunch buffet (you can opt for menus if you'd rather not do the buffet). Mint seems more upscale.
