Need Quick(ish), Good Place for Dinner near 40th and Madison
I need somewhere to take may family tomorrow night near 40th and Madison that is good but I only have an hour, but preferably not a stand and not somewhere with counter service. We'll be going early (5ish) so lines shouldn't be a problem. Open to any type of food. I've heard something about Penelope's and Sophie's, but don't know much about either. Thanks!!!
i think the Sophie's at 40th& Lex is still closed. There is one at 34 & Mad. Its good, fast Cuban food. It is counterservice, but fresh.
on 41st between Mad & 5th are a couple Japanese places that are quick and have some interesting things besides sushi. Also counterservice, but very good.
Trying to keep it as local to where you need to be:
Evergreen (Chinese), East 38th between 5th & Madison.
Chez Laurence (French Bistro), Corner Madison and East 38th, East side
Salute (Italian), Madison Avenue, @ East 39th (you probably can get out in about in hour)
Salmon River (Seafood), East 40th between 5th & Madison
None of these will kill your wallet too badly, all decent food, decent atmospheres and sevice too. I could think of more if you want to venture further.
I will 2nd Sophies Cuban if you don't mind being @ 33rd & Madison. Inexpensive, no atmosphere to speak of but the food is darn good.
