As the title of my post would suggest, I am looking for ideas beyond the typical, pedestrian spots to hold a goodbye lunch for a colleague I am going to miss. We will be a table of three, as this event is the sincere/off-the-radar variety.
The challenge: Our office is in the low 50's and Park Ave, which as you Chowhounders know, is a dead zone when you want anything that falls between from-a-cart and the best-of-the-best. Ideally, since the tab will be picked up by me and one other fellow, we don't want to drop a fortune. However, we want a fun, tasteful spot where we can commiserate and raise a glass to future prospects. And before you suggest PJ Clarke's, we'd love a place that actually takes reservations.
Thank you all, in advance!
