Job interview lunch near Madison Square Park

caraely Sep 14, 2008 06:02 PM

I'll be in NY for work this week. Need to interview someone for a job, over lunch. I'll be working at an office near 26th and Broadway, so I'm looking for recommendations for a lunch spot nearby that would be appropriate for a job interview -- not too noisy, about $25 or so per person (before tip), not too stuffy (this is a low-key, creative company, no suits). I already have another lunch scheduled at Tabla (different day). The lunch (including the walk to and from should take no more than 90 minutes. Recommendations? Thanks in advance.

    A Voce is lovely. www.avocerestaurant.com
    It is just north of Tabla.

      Punch, 21st and Broadway--a bit less pricey (and less crowded) than Avoce.

        These both look great. Thank you so much for the quick replies.

          Depending on how busy it is, the noise level at A Voce can be insanely high, making civilized conversation very difficult -- not the optimum situation during a job interview. Also, a new chef is taking charge of the kitchen today (Monday), so who know how that will impact the quality of the food.

          Fleur de Sel is on 20th St., b/t B'way & 5th. The cuisine is superb, and the 3-course lunch prix-fixe for $29 is close to your budget. Professional service, pleasing atmospherics and a conversation-friendly noise level. You should inform you server about your time constraints so that he or she can be sure you are taken care of in a timely fashion.
