Casual, fun lunch place in Midtown West 50's Manhattan for young adults

I work for a French bank. We have a bunch of summer interns coming in next week. I need to find a casual, fun lunch spot in Midtown West 50's. Any suggestions? Was thinking La Bonne Soupe, Toloache? Any more recommendations? American, Italian/Mediterranean, Asian??? Thanks.

  1. the modern? not exactly casual but if everyone's in work attire it should be fine.

      The Bar Room at The Modern would be an excellent choice. One does not have to be dressed in business clothes to feel comfortable there. Casual attire is quite acceptable.

      Benoit is another good option.

    2. I think Ma Peche on W. 56 Street would be perfect for you.
