Madison & 63rd for lunch

Hello Hounds,

Need help for lunch today near Madison & 63rd. Have an elderly guest who likes his food. He is staying on 63rd so I don't want to walk too far.

Price unimportant, but we probably don't want a diner.

Suggestions gratefully received.

  1. You could go to the Post House in the Lowell Hotel if they are open for lunch. I've only been for dinner.

      My friend is staying at the Lowell and doesn't want to eat another meal there! But thank you.

    2. Bistro Chat Noir is a charming French spot on 66th between 5th and Madison

      1. Last week I had a very good dinner at Park Avenue Autumn (63rd St. & Park Ave.). I'm sure the lunch would be equally good.

          Great suggestion, thank you. We had dinner there a couple of weeks ago, so I'm going to pass, and try lunchbelle's rec of the Chat Noir.

          Thanks all.

            I quite enjoyed my brunch at Chat Noir. Simple and elegant

                I started with the onion soup which was definitely the highlight of my meal. It's one of my favorite soups and surprisingly hard to find a good version. Followed by the steak frites. That was also a really good dish but not nearly as memorable as the soup :)

                  Wow! That makes me want to go right now! The last time I was there I had something boring like a salad and glass of Sancerre. Thanks for the feedback! :)

            I had a really nice dinner there this weekend. Highly recommended.
