Good food, Downtown, and where three middle aged guys can go watch a ballgtame - not sportsbar

My wife is out of town and it's guys night out. Two friends and I want to eat something that is a cut above pub grub, drink microbrew, and catch tonight's ball game.

As noted in subject: good food (but need not be great), we are three married middle aged guys who don't want to feel to out of place in a 20-somethings bar.

Chelsea, Union Square, East Village - Open to most any part of downtown. Any ideas?

I want to shoot the works for a group business dinner

Gentleman's club not going to make it through the ol' expense report, and Skybox I think is only for 4...Bowling is intriguing....Keep the ideas coming...

I want to shoot the works for a group business dinner

ORIGINAL POSTER HERE: I should have mentioned that at least 19 out of the 20 attendees will be men, so a buggy ride through the park, while enjoyable, may be a bit too romantic for this crew.

I want to shoot the works for a group business dinner

My company is hosting a business dinner for about 20 persons that is to take place in early June. When our guests hosted us on their turf in Germany a while back, they held a “state dinner” caliber function in a medieval castle, so we would very much like to return their hospitality in style.

I have no limits on expense (within reason… ; ), a preference to staying in the City (though something like River Café might work), and I’d prefer a venue that has outdoor seating, and want to shy away from one of those stifling private dinner rooms as they often end up feeling more like conference rooms and you don’t get the restaurant vibe.

We’ve considered hosting our overseas guests in a vintage American/NYC setting such as a suite at Yankee Stadium or a dinner cruise, but both of those ideas were dismissed for unevenness of food quality, potential weather problems, etc. So, we’re still searching for something that’s a bit creative. Any thoughts?
