We have a team of four of us that often has to get together for working dinners. This means some might have their laptop out, others are taking notes, etc. We'd like a place where we can get good food and drink if we want it. It is fine if the place is lively, but not so loud that we can't speak to each other.
As far as pricing, something moderate would be good (say $10-$30 entrees).
Location can be anywhere except for all the way downtown, or all the way uptown (ie the village up through UWS/UES).
Thanks in advance for the help.
