biz dinner, W50s/Sixth Av

sarahkaySFbayarea Sep 14, 2009 11:55 AM

Have a group of 7 ppl and would love recs for a place that is 1) walking distance, 4-6 blocks and 2) quiet enough so you can actually have/hear conversation at your own table. Can do private room if there are restaurants that offer it. Would like to keep costs at/under $100/person but OK to go over. Not looking for over-the-top swank - prefer really great food and right atmosphere over trying to impress. We'll be leaving from the Sheraton Hotel/Towers at W53rd/Sixth Av. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    How about Trattoria Del'Arte or Bar AMericain?

      We use Oceana in that neighborhood.

        Remi is a nice business dinner.

          Insieme,7th Ave. btween West 50th/51st,for very good Italian food.It's in the Michelangelo Hotel.
          Also,2nd the Remi suggestion.
          Quality Meats.I believe it's West 58th.If you go ask to sit upstairs.it's quieter than the lower level off the bar.
          I like Bar Americain,but it can get pretty loud,so may not be what you're looking for in this case.

            Marea has a lovely room in the back and a wonderful business lunch, but it's more like a 10 minute walk. It's also pretty quiet.

            Insieme is very close and also tends to be quiet; the food is not as wonderful as Marea's.

                Anthos is near there for terrific modern Greek.
