I need some recommendations for an 80th birthday dinner.
Not too pricey (Le Bernadin is out); 40s or 50s not too far east or west.
Family dinner so easy food (Italian, French) no sushi/seafood
Quiet for folks with failing hearing
A place where we will not be rushed out
Native New Yorker and parents who lived here for 40 years -- so nostalgic works too
Thanks for your thoughts!
