Client dinner options in garment district, midtown east-west-what's your top 5?

I work in the fashion industry and am trying to develop a roster of places in these areas for client dinners. Tend to skew towards American/continental, but French and Greek are also favorites.
Price is not an issue. Trendy, lively atmosphere preferred, but excellent food a must.

We've been traveling to Gramercy/Union Square - love Union Square Cafe, Craft, Eleven Madison Park - but looking for something closer to home.

I'd really appreciate a "top five" from fellow 'hounds...thanks much!

Eleven Madison Park
11 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10010

  1. What's the furthest north/south/east/west you're willing to go, if price is not an issue?

    1. You are not going to find the same caliber of restaurants as in the Gramercy/US area. But a few restaurants that will probably fit your criteria are:

      DB Bistro
      Bar Room at Aureole -- not the dining room, which is more stuffy and quiet
