Arriving in NYC for three days next week, to meet old college friends. looking for a fun place for drinks, possibly dinner, near Grand Central Station, reasonable price for occasion (just not really high end). Will be at least 4 people, maybe 6, at around 5:30ish. Not too noisy so we can hear our chatter! Have looked at Manhattan board discussions, keep seeing Zengo, Kellari's, Pampano, Cafe Centro, the Oyster Bar in GC, (and Michael Jordan's). Also good recommendation for La Fonda del Sol.
Thoughts on any of these or other suggestions would be great!
