My office has given me a $350 gift certificate to take some of my co-workers to lunch to celebrate 15 years of employment. We'll be a group of 7, including the CEO and the president. I've made a lunch reservation at Stella del Mare (Lexington, between 39th & 40th) because it's relatively close to work (42nd & Lex) and the write-ups in Vindigo, Menupages and Zagat looked pretty good. However, I'd like to hear from any of my fellow 'hounds who might have eaten there in the past year or so.
Or please feel free to suggest an alternative within a few blocks' walking distance from 42nd & Lexington that you think would be appropriate for lunch and would run no more than $50 per person, including tax and tip.
Thanks in advance,
