I have a client coming into town that I am taking to dinner tomorrow night. He has asked that we go somewhere "trendy" but "good" (I know this tends to be an oxymoron) which basically means he wants to get a feel of what life in NYC is like on a Friday night but still get a decent meal. I have no reservation as of yet and I do not care about cost. Note, he is not a 20-something but a 40-something so I would like a place where we can have a conversation and be able to "check" things out. Anyone have a suggestion?
