Help! Four days on the company dime.

caje Nov 26, 2007 05:32 PM

I'll be spending four days at a seminar at the Roosevelt (45th/Madison) next week. I've never been to NYC before and plan to arrive with an empty belly and my company charge card! I'd like to try sushi, seafood, french and steak.

Sushi Zen or Sushi Ann?
Oyster Bar or Oceana?
Maze or Cafe Boulud?
Keen's or Bull and Bear or BLT Steak or Frankie & Johnnie's

I will be alone so it has to be a place that is solo-diner friendly. Also I'd rather not have to make reservations but don't mind eating when they open (5:30-6:00).

Any other suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks all for the suggestions so far. I forgot to mention that my budget is $50-$75 food only.

        I second Zen123's choices but also suggest for the fun of it, and strictly Noo Yawk, Pearl's Oyster Bar for a reknowned lobster roll.

          Very fine choice, though I think strictly in terms of the lobster roll itself, the difference between Pearl's, Ed's and Mary's is overstated.
