Please help if you can...Two business associates going out for a nice semi-business/informal catch up dinner Weds night.
One guy is into what is new and trendy...has leanings towards places such as Balthazar, Les Hales, Union Sq, etc.
Other is very much the steakhouse, meat and potatoes kind of guy, Bobby Van's, Capital Grill, etc.
Price really isnt an object, not looking for the "Per Se" price range, but an expensive and nice place would be good.
Nothing Thai/Asian etc...Perhaps something with a trendy Americanized menu. Someplace with a positive vibe, fun, yet semi-business like.
Any location on Manhattan.
Thanks in advance!!!
