High-end Midtown business lunch emergency!

50-63rd and between 2nd-7th Aves, the closer to Madison the better, but could also venture another few blocks for the right place if truly worth it. Expense account, so any price, well up to $40/pp for the food. (How much are Masa, Per Se, and Asiate for lunch?)

Have to entertain important clients twice in this vicinity. We will be groups of just 3-4 people, all men in the fin'l industry who live and work here -- I don't. So they will know the top places, and I want them to think, 'wow, great taste!'.

Need a bit of space btwn tables, good, prof'l service, very good food, and a nice, elegant ambiance.

Did days of research, and here are my ideas so far:

BLT Steak
Bar Americain
57 Nobu -- are there tables private enough; and is not too noisy?
Four Seasons
La Grenouille
Le Bernardin
Lever House -- hear the food is just so-so
San Pietro
21 Club

Welcome other thoughts! Thank you.
