Suggestions Re: SAT 6/14/08 Near Jacob Javits
I need to tap into Chow's"hive mind"....
I need to make a reservation as soon as possible that meets the following criteria:
Saturday, June 14
8 PM, approximately
Located reasonably near the Jacob Javits Center
Menu that includes a variety of options...beef, seafood, poultry and vegetarian
Atmosphere conducive to quiet conversation
I'll value any first-hand recommendations (not search results) that Chowhounders can provide.
Keens is our favorite NYC steakhouse. But, frankly, I would not consider it particularly vegetarian-friendly. Also, not sure what you consider "reasonably-priced," but I think most people would classify Keens as fairly expensive. You can see decide for yourself by checking the website.
Italian restaurants are good options when catering to a spectrum of diners' preferences and dietary needs. Osterial Gelsi, which serves delicious Pugliese-style cuisine, is closer to Javits than Keens. It's on the corner of 9th Av. & 38th St.
