I've had Desmond's on my radar for a while now. Although widely described as a society spot, and located in a high-ceilinged old banking hall, across the street from Bloomingdale's loading docks, it looked smart and welcoming in the photos I saw. And it's only a step from the Subway Inn.
I got my chance with an invitation from GDine, the Chicago-based group dining community which recently launched in New York. GDine negotiates group dining packages at reduced rates and provides an online booking interface rather than distributing coupons or vouchers.
