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!!!
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.
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.
