Summer 2008 Midtown Lunch/dinner thread

Reviving this thread for spring/summer 2008.
Looks like lunch may be difficult for many.

What about drinks after work on Fridays for the midtown people. This is open invitation to any Quantnet member who happens to work in midtown (vicinity of Grand Central, Park Ave, Mets life building, etc). If you can take the subway to get there, the merrier.

I know Max, SP and others are in midtown. Anyone else ?

Maybe we can grab a drink and go to a karaoke or something :D

Always nice to have beer I guess...

Also maybe we can go out Thursday (maybe if not this Friday, next Thursday) -- people always have plans on Friday nights I guess !!!
 
Still trying to find out a place that is not crowded after work on Friday in midtown.

There's a place called Papillion on 54th between Madison and 5th--its usually not too crowded on Fridays. They have an upstairs and a downstairs, a huge selection of imported beers, and a nice waitressing crew. Plus, if you reserve ahead of time, you can book their pool table room for no extra cost (assuming you have a good # of people) or their upstairs private area. Its a little pricey but what isn't in Midtown...
 
You should change your avatar now, because you look totally different ;)
You win, Max. I'm not in my marathon shape yet but here you go

You should change your avatar too. I hardly recognize you !

Another midtown suggestion - Sutton Place on 53rd and second avenue. I've been there in summer, it was nice. They have two floors and an open terrace, so there shouldn't be problem with *malloc(size_t) crowd :) Also I don't remember it being too pricey...

Oi, who's that guy on your new avatar, Andy? I don't remember you wearing glasses :smt120 :D :D :D

Andy, do not fool people, I see it is not your picture! People, do not believe in this post.
You really are not wearing glasses. This guy might to be your cousin, since he looks like you a bit. ;)
 
Why can't this be in a new thread? I was confused when I opened this and see stuff all the way from last summer!

Downtown anyone?
 
By the way, from the emails I got, we will push for next Friday at 6pm since this Friday is a bit of short notice. Vladimir, Vadim, Hien, you guys joining us ?

Sorry I won't be able to make it next Friday either. I'll be away for that weekend, plus the Stochastic calc. midterm is right after that so....:-ss
 
Thanks for the suggestion, Vladimir. It sounds interesting and reasonable.
The fat guy is my twin brother. Without the glasses, it's me (or that's what Max wants you to believe)

Thanks, Andy, I am planning to join and will do my best to make it.

Thanks for invitation. If they let me earlier from work, I will be more than happy to join you guys.
 
Just a head up for people who are in our beer loving club but not on our short mailing list.

Next Friday is Good Friday so markets close.
We will have a drink at Grand Saloon on Thurs 3/20, at 6:30PM instead. This is before the stochastic class. Have a beer and Brownian motion will be a smooth sail for you.

Grand Saloon
