Business dinner for 10

  • 8
  • Share

Any recommendations for an upscalish, relatively quiet and calm place to have a business dinner for 10 in the neighborhood of Belden Place (would that be considered Union Square West? Financial District?)? Expense is not an issue.

  1. Not quite that area but maybe this thread might be useful: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7173...

    1. Upscale and quiet? Masa's is about three blocks away. One Michelin star and quite reliable but not more exciting than upscale French will be in any major city. I like this place and have no problem recommending it if upscale French (and the slight stuffiness that tends to go with it) is what you're looking for. Also within about the same radius: Perbacco. Interesting Italian, more casual, but still a lot of Financial District diners. It's not that quiet so you would want to call them to figure out if they can accommodate a party of 10 in a not so noisy part of the restaurant.

          Ah, piffle. I've dined with the OP and Perbacco would not impress him....

            Perbacco is certainly not quiet...
            Would the OP be happy at Campton Place? I've only lunched there on a quiet late afternoon.

        1. Thanks everyone for your suggestions. The list I generated on my own included:

          Fifth Floor
          Masa's
          Campton Place (how's it doing these days?)
          The Dining Room at the Ritz (have been, was pleased, but bored)
          ame (really enjoyed my first visit there, now four years ago!)

          I've not been to Perbacco, but I've heard it's a circus in there, loud too.

          1. re: ulterior epicure

            From what I read, I don't think anyone believes that Campton Place is, today, in the same category as the others in your list (was previously). The Chron has it as only 2.5 stars out of 4 the last few years.

            Given that the rest of your list is all Michelin one stars, I'd think you'd include the others: Quince, notably, and it would seem Aquerello is within your distance range. Aquerello is nearly hushed, perhaps to a fault.
