Best business lunch spot in Manhattan for pescetarian?

Taking a very important client out to lunch on a weekday and would like some recommendations for excellent seafood places. A few of the places I had in mind are only open for dinner. I also tried to get a reservation at Le Bernardin to take advantage of their lunch prix fixe menu, but of course I couldn't get a reservation with only a week's notice.

My budget isn't necessarily up there with Per Se or anything, but I am willing to spend $100 per person including drinks.

      Forgot Estiatorio Milos.

      Good for simply prepared grilled fish. Crazy expensive, Power Lunch scene.

        Excellent but it is crazy expensive.

    2. Try Marea.

      You should also consider the lounge at Le Bernardin which serves the full menu. You'd be able to get a table without a wait. Jackets are also not required in the lounge.

        1. Never been to Marea, but I think table spacing and seating comfort at Oceana is good for business discussions. You can probably find pictures of the restaurant interiors online, and the menus.

              3 for Marea
              Request a more private area. I do, and get it.

                Old standby - Oyster Bar in Grand Central (though that's not up there with Le Bernadin etc.)
