Restaurant for business lunch near 53rd and Lex

Coming up to the city for a business lunch on Thursday and need a good restaurant for a business lunch with top execs. They have already said no to Le Cirque, but any other recommendations would be great!

thx!

  1. I love Caviar Russe (Madison, 54-55 Sts.) for a business lunch. The food is very good and it is quiet and private for conversation. They have a good selection of sushi, cooked fish, beef, and duck, and a prix fixe that is a steal at $19.99 weekdays. It's on the second floor in a space that is like a beautiful jewel box with murals and chandeliers.

        1. Is it necessarily fine dining? I think Dos Caminos, which is right by there, would be a good place to take clients/partners... higher-end Mexican fare, with highly-regarded guacamole, but then again, I'm in advertising and enjoy drinking margaritas with clients. Also, if you're interested in a real New Yorky experience, Mexican is one of the few cuisines NYC is not known for, so there's that.
