need resto near FIT NYC

I have to take a group of people out for dinner near FIT in NYC- it's on 27th st and 7th ave. I want something not too casual but not too fancy, and definitely not too costly - maybe 45/person. Any suggestions?

      1. Maybe hit something in Koreatown - Kum Gang San is always fun, big place, great for groups. 32nd just East of Broadway.

        1. Le Zie, on 7th Ave. and 20th St. Don't be fooled by its name: it's Italian. And it's casual and good and very reasonably priced.

          There are a few places on 7th that would be more convenient -- Seven Bar & Grill, Mustang Sally's/Harry's -- but I hate those places!

            Those are the worst places to eat. Horrible food, service and atmosphere. Go with Hill COuntry

              When you say "those are the worst places to eat," I assume you mean Seven and Mustang Sally's/Harry's, and I completely agree with you. But I also assume you're not including Le Zie in that statement. Le Zie is awesome.

                I was referring to the twin Mustangs.

              What do you mean by "don't be fooled by its name"? Le Zie means "The Uncles" in Italian.

              For the record, I actually found it too salty when I tried it a few years ago.

                No, it means "The Aunts". It is feminine.

                In Italian, "the uncles" would be "Gli Zii"

                  You're right; bad rusty mistake by me. But in either case, it is an Italian word.

            3. How big is the group and what kind of cuisine do you think will best suit everybody? Do you want wine or beer or neither or both?
