    You don't say what price point, but the Oval Room is close by. I haven't been to Kellari Tavern, but it is close too, as well as, Spezie. I haven't been to Spezie in over a year, it was very good when I went, but I would check for a more recent review.

    Vidalia is also very close.

    For something less expensive Mai Thai is decent and is where lots of people have business meetings in that area.

        kt - was at Kellari last month - super fresh seafood, some of the best octopus I've ever had, some of the items in the display case were still moving.

          Thanks for the report I used to work right around the corner before it was there. Hope that spot does well. Might have to go visit my old hood and try it out.

          These are good recommendations.

          Depending on your price point you might also like Equinox, Bombay Club, Sichuan Pavilion, or Nooshi.

          Nooshi Restaurant

            Equinox is still being renovated I believe.
