New Client-Lunch Meeting on a Monday?

Hi all,

Taking out what could be a very good client. Haven't been to NYC in a while. Need location near 51st street between 5th and 6th...walking distance. Expensive is ok. Business type joint. Client is in investment business. Suggestions

  1. Bar Americain
    152 w 52nd st (btwn 6th & 7th ave)

    21 Club
    21 w 52nd st (btwn 5th & 6th)

    Nobu 57
    40 w 57th st (btwn 5th & 6th)

    1. I am not a fan of Bar Americain though there are many Hounds who are. Aside from my poor experience with the food, I don't think the atmospherics are right for this kind of meeting.

      I would suggest the following:

      The Modern, in MoMA, on 53d, b/t 5th & 6th -

      Alto, on 53rd, B/t 5th & Madison -

      Aquavit, on 55th, b/t Madison & Park -

        Le Bernardin 155 W. 51rst (bet. 6th and 7th) 212-554-1515. Seems like this restaurant is made for exactly this occasion. Seafood is special, but they also have a veggie option and a meat option that are terrific.
