Quick, quiet sit-down lunch for 4 near Grand Central?

My boss and I are having lunch with two web designers, and we need to take them to a place where we can sit and talk comfortably. We're looking for the sweet spot of semi-nice but not super expensive. We're both new to our jobs and this area (on 42nd Street and Park, right across from Grand Central Station), and it seems to be full of grab-and-go joints and super expensive corporate sit-downs. What is there that's in the middle?!

I was thinking maybe Chiyoda sushi, but the guy on the phone warned me that they were guaranteed to be mobbed at 1pm.

I know that quiet, good, inexpensive, and midtown is a hell of a combination to ask for...but I could use any ideas.

Thanks so much.
