My Fiance and I and 10 friends are coming to NY at the end of Jan to Celebrate his 30th Birthday. I asked the concierge at the hotel to recommend some restaurants we could go to as a group that had atmosphere with good food (a decent steak is a must!) but wasn't a die-hard cool, try too hard kind of a place but that still had the kind of something that makes for a special occasion. Somewhere we could perhaps have a drink after our meal before we venture out into the night. We are staying in around W54th & 7th. The hotel Concierge has recommended Quality Meats, Del Friscos in the area and downtown Megu, The Standard Grill and STK.
Does anyone have any thoughts on these suggestions? Or any better ideas? I thought you guys were the people to ask! Any suggestion welcome.
