Looking for a sit down lunch for the boss and about 7 others. Can't be super expensive ( it can be regular expensive if that makes sense), but we are looking for something better than a dinner as well.
We are in located in midtown west (8th ave btwn 37th and 38th) and are looking for something in walking distance (I know I know it all depends on who's doing the walking) but a reasonable distance.
One suggestion mentioned was Keen's Steakhouse (36th @ 6th), but the birthday boss is not a big beef eater, but something along those lines (not necessarily a steakhouse) to kill 2 hours for a Friday lunch. a few drinks a few laughs some place not super noisy either. Definetly no BBQ, Chinese, Japanese or Thai.
I know the area well enough for a cheap lunch but not for the fancier stuff, chowhounds please help
