Mid-afternoon relaxed, reasonable dining in Midtown?
Tomorrow afternoon, with offices closing early for the holiday weekend, a friend and I wanted to have a late lunch/early dinner (meet at 2 or 2:30 pm) and catch up. We can sit for 2-3 hours nursing a 1-2 cocktails and not too expensive fare ($100 for 2?). We can meet anywhere from the hi 40's to 30's West side to about 5th Ave.
I would not like to hang out in a diner. We are celebrating a birthday too.
Any cuisine but Italian (just had) is fine. Not noisy also.
Suggestions are appreciated.
