Prix Fixe Lunch in Manhattan

willscarlett Apr 5, 2014 08:20 AM

My girlfriend is graduating nursing school soon and as a few guests are attending the graduation, we need to plan lunch afterwards. I'm wondering what recommendations people may have for prix fixe lunch, any style is fine. Looking to keep this max $30 per person before tax and tip.

      do you want to be in a certain neighborhood? i find after a graduation, some place close by is best, traveling to new place whether mass transit or driving is no fun.

        Well, she attends the nursing program at Columbia, whose medical campus is at 168th & Broadway. There's really nothing graduation worthy up there. She's now completing her NP/MSN degree, but when she finished her BSN degree, we all went downtown and had lunch at Circo.

          Nougatine at Jean Georges, has a really nice prix fixe lunch and it should be a lovely time to dine outside on the patio. As a bonus, it's convenient to all of the westside subways!

            I was going to mention the usual along the west side corridor, Lincoln, Telepan, and so forth - but they're all a little above $30.

            Red Rooster has a lunch deal. Though that's so far from 168 that it's not a matter of convenience but choice.

            After my graduation (at MSG), I took my extended family to Korean in Ktown.

              From 168 St, Red Rooster is about four stops on the C train and one or two avenues walk east. I don't think that's that much more inconvenient than anything else from that starting point...

          Porter House in the Time Warner complex has a very nice prix fixe within your budget and a very nice ambiance (some tables overlook Central Park). Robert's in the Folk Art museum also has great views, tho I wasn't impressed with the food, but I hear that they have a new chef.

              Husband loves Tao for lunch. He takes a lot of clients and business associates. I believe it's $25-30/pp.

                Consider Lincoln as well ($36). Very imaginative pastas
