I need to catch up with some out-of -town people in their late 60s/ early 70s after their matinee show today around 43rd and 8th. I am looking for suggestion for a spot for coffee and conversation around that area. I would have picked a place like Bouchon, but that's a fair distance up. I'd prefer spots within 5-6 blocks.
My backup is one of the Starbucks in the area. Any recommendations for which one makes better coffee/ is more spacious?
