I need a restaurant for a work dinner for 12 people on a Friday. We are a young bunch and none too stuffy, but there will be a couple of old-timers in the group who won't go for anything too "funky". As long as there are some meat-and-potatoes-type options we should be fine. Great food and a good wine list at moderate-to-high prices would be ideal. Maybe a semi-private room or table where we can linger and converse?? Somewhere on the East side between 14th and 72nd Streets.
