A friend has kindly invited me to join her to go to the Westminster Dog Show on Monday night at Madison Square Gardens and I want to invite her to dinner before hand, but have been, sadly, lazy about looking into it and making reservations. Ideally, we want to go beforehand to see the dogs in the handling area, then go to dinner at 6 and make it back for the show at 8pm. I'm just not that familiar with the area, but would like to take her somewhere nice - price and cuisine not issues (though not a steakhouse), but I think I'd prefer not to deal with getting cabs to and from at that hour.
Thanks so much!
P.S. I did do a search but mostly came up with inexpensive and/or kid friendly options. We could go to DB Bistro Moderne, but I'd like some other options, if there are any.
Edit - One idea - Osteria Gelsi - I'll do a search.
