45th anniversary -- don't want to spend it sitting eating rich elaborate food but would like to have a tasty weekday meal in restaurant in or near any lively neighborhood. Could be spicy ethnic food. We've never been to Queens to eat -- that might work if we had some guidance. Downtown might feel like a vacation from our usual neighborhood. Budget not particularly an issue, given that we are not heading to Per Se or EMP. Table cloths and good service might be a nice plus. Oh...I almost forgot. Noisy is not okay at this stage.
