Birthday Lunch for me near Sony Bldg. West 50's

Thanks for all the great suggestions, which I am happy to know of for the future.
In the end, we rushed over to Benoit and they told us which dishes would get us out in 45 minutes.
It was a great idea and a lovely lunch!

That's funny, thanks!

I'm in a holding pattern now. Hopefully will be early dinner in Chelsea.

You guys are the best!

Birthday Lunch for me near Sony Bldg. West 50's

That's actually a very good idea!
Right now plans are in flux until tomorrow. And I asked my friend if an early dinner might be possible instead, since the timing was just so tight, as you realized. It seems that we could do that.
Tomorrow I will know for sure where we will be. There is now a chance that it will be in Chelsea instead for one of the Tribeca movies.
Any tips for the area of 23 St. 7-8? Not too lavish. Friend not such a big spender.

You are right, trockwood. I'm starting to wonder what we can manage in time, as it will take some minutes to get out of Sony building and the return time is fixed. Maybe we can do dessert at Pomme Palais after.
Does anyone know about Butterfish right in Sony Plaza, or anything right across the street in Trump Tower?

Ma Peche and the Bar Room both sound great. I would probably lean toward the Bar Room if it's ok with my friend, partly because it's less of a brunch menu.

Are these small plates? Would one of what sound like the mains or a pasta suffice for a quick lunch?
And what would you recommend?

I don't think I saw prices on Ma Peche's menu. How does it compare in price to the Bar Room?

You're right,the time is so short. Anything could work. I think the main thing may be that we have to stay very close.

Smaller plates would be ok, or maybe just a main dish somewhere.

Birthday Lunch for me near Sony Bldg. West 50's

I made a mistake! (Very tired.)
We will be in the East, not West, 50's.
We could head west, but need to stay close, as our time is short.
We may have time for only one course.
I would love to find a place that feels a little like a birthday without being greedy.
Thanks!

A friend has invited me to lunch Saturday for my birthday. She has asked me to suggest a place.
We will be at,and will then return to, the Sony Bldg.,55-56,5th-Madison. We will have 1 hr. 15 min. total including getting to a place and back again,starting at 1:45 PM.
Hope you can help. All ideas are welcome and appreciated!

Pescatore & Pete's Tavern

Thanks to all of you. Yes, change of venue is not an option. As you suggest, I will keep it simple and keep the focus off the food.
Happy New Year.

Pescatore & Pete's Tavern

Happy Holidays to all.
I will be joining a group New Year's Eve at Pescatore on 2 Ave., and New Year's Day at Pete's Tavern.
Help! I have been to Pescatore 2 or 3 times with the same people, and was always disappointed with the food. I have not been to Pete's in decades.
Please help - what should I order?
Happy New Year and thanks to all.

Thanks. Yes, I looked it up. Ai Fiori looks and sounds really good.

Saturday Brunch Midtown

I am glad to know about Mercato, but if the timing remains as is, they open too late.
I think 2 Ave. Deli is a great idea.
Money is something of an object, but if it were not, what would you suggest, Pan?
Thanks to you all.

Saturday Brunch Midtown

Thanks, Motosport. You are right, I guess it would be a breakfast spot that I need.
Afterwards I will be heading to 56 and Madison, but I could cut a wide berth, 20 blocks or so, just not all the way uptown or downtown.

Hello to all
I am invited to a birthday dinner for a friend at Blue Water Grill next Wednesday. I have not been there before.

I have read many of the (mostly older) postings.

Am hoping for some suggestions on best dishes to order.

Thanks for all help.

I am taking my brother to Junoon this Sunday for a birthday dinner. I have not been there before.
They are participating in the Taste Asia month.

Can anyone suggest some good things to order or anything to be aware of?

Sunday Birthday Brunch at Balthazar

After receiving great recommendations at this board, I am excited to be going to Balthazar for the first time on Sunday as an early brunch for my birthday.
I have looked at the menu and some reviews. I would love suggestions from this board. Is the bar steak a good idea? I've read that the banana ricotta tart is very good; the vanilla bread pudding sounds good to me.
I would like to order right, so welcome all suggestions.
Thanks, as always.

Birthday Lunch near Public Theater

I will be going to a 2 PM Sunday performance at the Public Theater.
I've been asked to find a restaurant for an early birthday lunch before at which I am the guest.
I don't want to be over-the-top greedy, but other than that there are really no constraints.
We like everything.
Thanks for all ideas.
