Midtown East
Tucked into the tunnellike walkway between Park Avenue and Grand Central, Léa is an upscale alternative for the financial-services suits that populate the area by day. The clientele and the waitstaff have that pinched European look, and you’ll part with plenty of cash in order to mingle: A glass of wine starts at $8, and seats are only for bottle service (champagnes start at $48; liquors, $130). DJs play Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but the schedule often varies, so call in advance. Hard to justify, but there’s a velvet rope outside.
