Soon-To-Be Tourist seeks great grub near 34th and Park!

Some friends and I are planning a weekender in New York for late November. As an aspiring Chowhound, I'm seeking a great meal to commemorate the trip.
Any and all suggestions are welcome!
We're staying at the Grand Union Hotel at 32nd and Park.
Thanks a ton,
The difficulty is that there are so very many great places. Here are some suggestions I made to another visitor recently.
For high end places, check out Eleven Madison Park, Daniel, Cafe Boulud, Gramercy Tavern, Picholine, Alto, Jean Georges, Babbo ... and many more that I'm sure I am forgetting.
Hi Chandler - to help you out, it would be great to know a few things first.
1. Are you looking for one great meal or many different experiences
2. What type of food do you like
3. What's your budget
4. What sort of atmosphere do you prefer?
While you don't have to answer all (or any) of these questions, the more we know, the better chance you'll get the perfect place.
Eleven Madison Park
11 madison ave (@ 24th st)
Blue Smoke - 116 e 27th st (btwn lexington & park )
36 e 20th st (btwn broadway & park)
90 madison ave, 2nd floor (@ 29th)
If you want a great steakhouse, Wolfgangs is at 33rd & 3rd and one of the best in the city. You're also steps away from Artisanal - an excellent french bistro.
For a true NYC experience check out the Pastrami at Sarges deli on 36th & 3rd ave or at 2nd Ave deli on 33rd & 3rd.
Thanks to all for their suggestions!
We ended up going to Mesa Grill. I was very satisfied to say the least.
Wrapped up the whole meal with an Irish coffee and hit the town. Great trip, great city. Thanks again, NY! I want to be a part of it!
