Looking for Best Value QUIET restaurant in Manhattan Saturday night
I'm in your great city for a business meeting this Saturday, October 4.
5 of us art professionals are meeting and in need of a quiet but great value restaurant so we can have our own productive and lively conversation. One of us is from the UK. Two of us are New Yorkers; the others are from Atlanta.
Any recommendations? A non-profit is covering the meal so great value is important.
It need not be swanky, indeed preferably laid-back, as it’s the food that counts, and adequate wine.
Since there are 5 of us, our tastes will vary so continental cuisine that has fish meat and chicken are probably best.
Neighborhood Midtown/Chelsea/Greenich Village; however I'd tell everyone to just show up regardless of the neighborhood if this was a place for our UK guest to eat at and be "wowed!"
Price range - Ideally under $60/person including a glass of wine. $45-50/person without wine. Thanks.
If you can dine early -- between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. -- Tocqueville, on 15th St., b/t Union Square W. & 5th Av., offers a 3-course prix fixe for $44. Wine pairings for each course can be had for $15. Of course, you can just order one glass. Tax & tip are additional. Superb cuisine, excellent service, and quiet, elegant ambiance.
