Looking for good food, not too stuffy, midtown/uptown restaurant for special occassion/bday lunch.

We've already done Le Bernadin, Eleven Madison Park, Modern...

      La Grenouille (a little stuffy, but it's an interesting scene to be sure).

        Is the NoMad too south?

          Since you are going to a stuffy part of town and you have mentioned 3 stuffy restaurants. The two choices listed below, Jean Georges and La Grenouille are perfect choices, and yes they are stuffy too, but hey, it is a special occasion.

            Marea- not stuffy (compared to the others)- park view and delicious.
