One dining opportunity near the Essex House.

I will be attending a conference in the city at the end of the month, and will be in and out quickly. My one chance to squeeze in a dining experience will be to duck out of the cocktail reception on Wednesday night a little early and make a 9pm reservation somewhere near the Essex House. I will likely be solo.

I want a restaurant close that would be memorable and accomodating for a solo diner. I don't mind eating at the bar. It has been a long time since I have been to New York and I am completely out of touch with the restaurant scene.

I am sure there are many wonderful choices. Price is no object. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
