Favorite upscale restaurants Mid-town west
Just moved my office to mid-town 36th and 8th, and I am looking for some nice places to bring clients for lunch. Any ideas?
Not a lot of upscale spots in that immediate vicinity. But Keens immediately comes to mind. It's on 36th, b/t 5th & 6th (closer to 6th).
Osteria Gelsi, on the corner of 9th & 38th. Not upscale but still nice enough for client lunches, and the food's delicious.
West Bank Cafe, on 42nd, b/t 9th & 10th, would also work. Excellent food, comfortable ambiance and well-spaced tables.
dbBistro Moderne, on 44th, b/t 5th & 6th. is 4-star chef Daniel Boulud's restaurant focusing on contemporary French bistro cuisine. Upscale, but not nearly as expensive as his eponymous temple of haute cuisine.
I wouldn't call West Bank "upscale" since it is not that expensive, but it's my favorite lunch and late evening spot in that part of town.
How about Esca? http://www.esca-nyc.com/
And also, Bar Centrale, upstairs from Joe Allen's. You should reserve a spot. Great for discreet people watching. http://www.zagat.com/Verticals/Proper...
