I'm looking for a restaurant for a business dinner for six people in Midtown East, specifically in the low to mid 40-street numbers (more specifically, around 42nd between 1st and Lex, plus or minus maybe 4-5 blocks). Other parameters would include:
- Upscale, $35-40 entrees, or $125 pp overall
- Not too loud so the group can talk
- Good wine list
I'd found two myself by searching through threads, but couldn't answer a few key questions:
Convivio, formerly L'Impero (42nd between 1st and 2nd) - what's the new place like? is the menu as good as before? is it quiet or raucous?
Patroon (46th between 3rd and Lex) - seems promising but is it loud?
Thoughts very welcome on these two, or any other alternatives in the area.
Thanks a lot!
