Drink recommendations near the Metropolitan Museum?

jlstrasb | Mar 1, 201112:08 PM     10

We are coming into town for the weekend and want to take advantage of the Met's late hours on Saturdays (until 9pm). We are staying in Midtown. I was thinking that we might eat early and then go to the Met until late, then try to get a drink afterward nearby. Or, I could do it in the reverse--get a drink in either Midtown or by the Met and eat dinner late.

It doesn't matter to us. Mainly, I am looking for a place that won't be elbow to elbow with a very young crowd and a few nice wines by the glass/decent beer. Thanks for your help.
