graduation lunch restaurant recommendation $40pp max

hey everyone!
i've had lots of drama with finding a restaurant for graduation, and for someone who has been planning this lunch for months now, i can't believe it's coming to the last minute to make this reservation

any location in manhattan, no real preference on type of food, biggest concern (for my dad) is price range
biggest concern for me is quality of food, then ambiance

i like the jean-georges restaurant deals for lunch - those prix fixe menus are incredible
but when i called for a reservation at JOJO for a group of nine they restricted me to a party menu which cut down entirely on the variety of the menu to two options per course for a very inflated price, $35 being the lowest (and $12 extra per person for giving my guests the OPTION of a steak? get real)

i already called del posto and sadly they have a private party going on that day and aren't taking any reservations

any suggestions are highly appreciated, especially any knowledge of restaurants that do not try to dupe you with these rip off party menus...or perhaps experiences with good party menus
thanks guys!
