Italian beef, drinks, pastries (not all at the same time)

danna | Jun 20, 200502:25 PM

I'll be at Swissotel in late July. Have made dinner reservations (Alinea and Osteria via Stato). Now I need:

Italian beef for my husband mid-afternoon on Thurday, somewhere as close as possible to the Swissotel (we don't land until 2:00 and our Alinea res are at 6:30).

On Friday night, I need a nice place where we and 2 other couples can have just drinks after OVS. We're all staying at Swisshotel, so somewhere on the walk back from the restaurant or not too far afield would be nice.

For Saturday morning, I would like to pick up some pastries as a hostess gift before we head out to the 'burbs. Again, I fear I need reasonable proximity to the hotel, since I am carless, and will be depending on the kindness of strangers (OK, in-laws).
