Dinner near Grand Central?

Would love any suggestions for two old friends meeting to talk and eat good food. Pricey ok, but astronomical not. Have checked out most of the theater-district ideas and would like to get suggestions east of Park Ave, btw 55 and 40th Sts. Am considering Brasserie, but have been ther many times (although not recently). Is it still ok? Other suggestions?

  1. Do you want east of Park, or west of Park (i.e. - closer to GC?)?

          Django is nice, I haven't eaten there in a few years but it is close to grand central. There's also Mr. K's on Lex. Monkey Bar recently reopend.

    2. It's not the precise location you want -- it's on the other side of 5th -- but have you considered DB Bistro Moderne?

      1. Cibo, on 2nd Ave and 41st Street. Nicely priced, well prepared prix fixe w/ choices in appealing, low key atmosphere.

        1. Capital Grille on 42nd is close and very good

          1. how about some Japanese? This is east of Lex, but I think worth it.
            Aburiya Kinnosuke on 45th btwn 2nd and 3rd avenues.
