Restaurant for business lunch near 53rd and Lex

Seconding Alto (very good), followed by Avra and Brasserie. If you're willing to travel a subway stop or two north or south, you might try Gramercy Tavern or Per Se.

Upscale, quiet dinner for grandma's 80th birthday between 20s and Tribeca?

I'm looking for recommendations for restaurants that might be good for hosting a dinner for 8 to 10 in a quiet environment with excellent food and great service.

If we had the budget, we would do something like Daniel - calm, fine dining, European (or possibly American) cuisine. Price wise we are looking for something in the $$$ as opposed to $$$$ range.

The group is interested in something no further north than the 20s, and willing to travel as far south as Tribeca. I had thought of Maialino or Gramercy Tavern, but have not been to either.

Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated! I am a 20-something who is more familiar with Brooklyn area restaurants and young, hip, excessively loud establishments in the city.

Thanks in advance!

Tribeca Coffeeshops

seconding la colombe. really fresh, strong coffee - well worth the walk. you'll certainly have enough energy on the way back.

Midtown east office party, 30 people, $50-60 per head?

Can anyone reco a location for an office holiday party within walking distance of 50th and Park, where roughly 30 people could go for drinks/nibbles for $50-60 per person?

We're open to either reserving a space or going to a public bar or restaurant, as long as there's enough room for us to gather together comfortably, and sit or perch as necessary (can't be too overcrowded).

Those of us tasked with the planning don't know the midtown area nightlife too well, so any suggestions are going to be much appreciated. Thanks!
