Dinner near London Hotel or Gershwin Theatre

Hello...helping out a friend for his trip to NYC
He is looking for a good place near the London Hotel or Gershwin Theatre 51st and 7th Ave
No particular food criteria other than good - looking for a few options in that area - he mentioned French, however that isnt a must if there are better options closer
The pricepoint would need to be $100pp or less not counting drinks - him and his wife are fairly adventurous eaters
Your friend might enjoy Ma Peche. I was there last week for dinner, and had another great dinner (scallops, "Juliet" steak). Service was very friendly and attentive. The cuisine is French-Vietnamese. They have a chocolate dessert that is my favorite dessert of all of the Momofuku restaurants (and possibly any restaurant--yes, it's that good!). Ma Peche is located on West 56 Street between Fifth and Sixth Aves.

I go to The Modern Dining Room or The Modern Bar Room at least once a month and have a ton of photos from my meals by now. Take a look if you're interested.

Though my dear friend ellenost adores Ma Peche, we've only been there once (for lunch) and I didn't love it. Not that it was in any way bad, just not my favorite style of cuisine.
I much prefer French and so I'm with Cheeryvisage with regard to The Modern, which is French with Alsacian influences. We've enjoyed delicious meals in both the Bar Room and the Dining Room. Which one should your friends choose? It depends on whether they want a casual atmosphere or something more fancy/formal. (Note: A jacket is not required in the Dining Room.)
I wanted to post a quick thank you to everyone for the suggestions
Just got a txt from my friend that dinner at The Modern was worth every penny and they are off to the theatre
Will try to update a bit what they thought was the best or unforgettable next time i speak to them
