Great dinner spot for celebratory business dinner?

Have had a very successful business trip and want to treat my colleagues to a great restaurant tonight to celebrate. Suggestions for great, atmospheric restaurants in NY for 3 people, please. Italian, Asian, eclectic... Doesn't really matter.

    One of my standard favorite restaurants to celebrate at is Scarpetta in the Meatpacking District. It usually requires reservations in advance but if you don't mind eating early or late you probably will have a few options. They also have a gorgeous bar you can eat at without a reservation that I have enjoyed quite a few times. Make sure at least one of you trys the Tomato Basil Spaghetti! It's worth the $25 and the rest of you will probably have order envy.

    For a more accessible, though still excellent dining option try Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen in the West Village. This American resturaunt Its on a beautiful winding street, very classic NYC. Wait for your table at the wine bar Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar across the street and nosh on the breadsticks while people watching out the front window.

    If you're interested in Asian food it would be a shame to visit NYC and not have Ramen. Ippudo Westside has my vote for best ramen in the city. They are famed for not taking reservations so get there on the early side to put your names down. Momofuku Noodle Bar comes in second place for me with their ramen. Grab a delicious and inventive cocktail at their cocktail bar Booker & Dax around the corner and end the evening with dessert from their hole in the wall Momofuku Milk Bar. They offer unique treats such as cereal milk flavored soft server or Karlie's Kookies by famed supermodel Karlie Kloss.

    I'm assuming that all the pricey places that require reservations will be taken, but you might still be able to get reservations at places like: Bar Primi (Italian) or Saxon + Parole (American) in Nolita, Buddakan in Chelsea; Blue Water Grill in Union Square is a little more typical business-y place, but still a good staple.

    Cheers!! Since you're last minute, you're options are limited. I think for the best food where you can sit at bar without reservations would be Le Bernardin or Eleven Madison Park Restaurant (recently #5 restaurant in the world). Both places serve food at the bar and will have a wine list deep enough that you'll be able to properly celebrate.

    Peking Duck House has awesome duck and authentic Chinese food in general with fabulous service! White tablecloths and great ambiance. Reservations optional, especially on a week night. This is a not-to-be-missed destination every time we're in New York. Plus it's quiet (not too quiet, though) for conversation.
