Lunch near 45th and 5th?

In town for work, and I need to take someone out to lunch on Friday, near our office on 45th St. between 5th and 6th.
I'm not at all familiar with the area, and haven't had much luck finding anything great. All I see is low-end delis and a few hotel restaurants. What am I missing?
Good questions, sorry I wasn't more specific.
I'm looking for a casual place, about $20 per person. If I were in San Francisco, I would take someone to the Ferry Building. (That's my frame of reference, not sure whether it's of help!)
DB Bistro Moderne and Aureole look a little too formal. I'd guess about 10 blocks' radius? I don't know her food interests. And I think she's bringing a baby along.
Is Piccolo Cafe any good? I walked by it, seems perhaps a little TOO casual but I liked the vibe.
Menu Pages is a good place to peruse... and you can match up places that seem interesting to you with posts here on the Manhattan Board.
This is a link filtered for the West 40s and for Lunch, and you can further filter by cuisine, cost etc.
I find this helpful for narrowing down choices.
