Recs near the Waldorf

I have an event at the Waldorf in a couple of weeks and a vendor wants to take us out to dinner after the event. I actually live in the neighborhood but we usually go out downtown. He has asked for a few recommendations and I was considering Pampano (I really like Pampano), Django (haven't been there in ages) - any other suggestions? I would like to make recs in a range of price points so he can choose what fits his budget. My only requirement is no Indian or Chinese and that it be within a few minutes walk.

Thanks for your help.

  1. I guess I am not the only one who never goes out for dinner in Midtown East.

    1. When I go out in the area I go to Sip Sak. It's a little more formal than it used to be, but don't know if it's business-dinner appropriate. What about Pescatore on 2nd Avenue? I've never been, but it looks somewhat appealing.

      1. Fresco would be my choice. It's great Italian, good service. A nice (but noisy) room. It's on 52 (or is it 53?) b/t Park and Mad.
