Sexy book club restaurant

looking for a restaurant to have our next bookclub meeting. the book is 50 shades of grey, so would love something on the sexy side. it is a mixed group of 7 woman, so we are looking for something not too expensive, preferabley in the union square/gramercy/flat iron area.

  1. What time of day/meal does this meet? Are you looking to eat/drink/chat and leave, or occupy a table for hours?

    Striphouse is sexy but may not be good for your purposes.

      It will be for dinner/drinks/chat on a Wednesday evening. We want to be able to sit and talk for a couple of hours. Striphouse is one of my favorite restaurants and we are regulars. However, this group is very mixed and I'm concerned it might be a little pricey for some. Though the atmosphere is what I am looking for.
      Willing to venture out of the neighborhood for the right place. Thanks.

        how can I resist? gforce is asking what time and day, and very convincing about the Strip House. So I have to ask also, what time, what day, what place? 7 women meeting for a sexy talk lunch. I'll be there ,, WOW

        ( note: if my humor offends anyone, ummmmm ,,, so sorry)

      2. Try Roberts steakhouse in the Penthouse Club. Fits the vibe of the book perfectly.

        1. When my book club meets, we usually have a theme dinner at someone's house based on the book we read. When we read 50 Shades, we ended up going out for dinner to IHOP. By no means sexy, but there is a lot of talk of pancakes, etc, in the book and they do at one point actually go to IHOP. Just a thought.
