UWS - Seeking celebratory lunch spot near 79th and Broadway

A group of 7 or 8 will be lunching after a law school graduation. I'd love a spot within a mile of 79th and Broadway that has a nice atmosphere, good service, and not wildly expensive but around $30-40 per person (without drinks) is fine. We like fairly light food -- salads, seafood, light pastas, French or Italian or California-style could be nice. Bonus points for an extensive vegetarian menu. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

      Ocean Grill--Columbus and 78th. Weather permitting there are outside tables too but reserve if you want one.

        My family loves Blue Water Grill, so Ocean Grill is a great suggestion, thanks!

        The menu at Nice Matin looks tasty and up our alley. Is the atmosphere pretty casual though? I'm trying to judge from the photos and it seems a bit cafe-ish?

          If you're still considering a more extensive vegetarian menu, Blossom Cafe on 82nd and Columbus is a good option. Vegan but very tasty, and casually pretty.

            I'd been thinking about that, and was also wondering about the new UWS branch of Candle Cafe. If Candle 79 were closer, we'd be going there for sure :) Thoughts on whether Candle Cafe West would work for this situation? Too casual?
