QUIET and accessible restaurant for lunch in Midtown

Avalondaughter | Apr 18, 2014 09:22 AM

I have a very special request.

I work in Manhattan and enjoy occasional lunches with a good friend who lives in the city. I work in Midtown East near GCT and when we have lunch I like to stay close to the office so I can return to work in decent time.

The problem is that my friend has a neurological condition that leaves him both physically limited and also has some speech issues. If a restaurant is too crowded and noisy it makes conversation very difficult.

I don't care about what the cuisine is. We're not picky, but we do need vegetarian options for him. It doesn't even have to be the best food in the world and if it's a little pricey that's okay too. I just need to be able to talk to my friend and not have him deal with stuff like stairs. I would also like a place that takes rezzies, although if it's not crowded, I suppose I don't always need one.

Anyone have any suggestions?
