Need rec for dinner in east 50's

Anything you highly recommend? Client/friend meeting. Not too formal or too casual. Something in the middle. Great food.

Thanks in advance!

          not sure when you last ate at Destino's, but i live in the neighborhood and have been many times. The last 4 times i have been there it is absolutley, inexcuasably, awful. I would avoid that place at all costs and i will never, ever go there again. The pasta sauces were worse than any jarred sauce i've ever tasted. The decor has never been great but now that the food is bad, i won't be back.

        2. I know you didn't ask for French but La Bateau Ivre is a good casual French bistro that's worth check it out.
