Weekend lunch...midtown west

An old friend will be coming into NYC (Port Authority) over the weekend and we are planning on meeting for a casual lunch. ISO someplace tasty, moderately priced, nice atmosphere, not touristy, quiet enough to carry on a conversation.

Anyone have a favorite?

  1. Osteria Gelsi, on the corner of 9th Av. & 38th St., serves delicious Pugliese cuisine. Good service and pleasant atmospherics.

    West Bank Cafe, on 42nd St., b/t 9th & 10th Avs., serves excellent New American cuisine. On weekends, they offer a brunch menu. Friendly service and comfortable ambiance.

    1. 44 & X, located on 44th St and 10th Avenue, is a solid bet for all the factors you mentioned above...And close to the PA!
