New Yorker looking for recommendations. We're 2 couples 60ish (not hip) looking for a good casual dinner place. It doesn't have to be in walking distance, we can drive. It could be anything (Seafood, Italian, American,...not fusion anything, remember NOT hip). Price is not really an issue. We're old friends and would like to be able to enjoy the food and conversation. Don't worry if it's 'hard to find' we're 60 but GPS enabled.
I liked Bertha's last year but the menu may not be for everyone. We liked the crab cakes at G&M but the place was a little uncomfortable. You get the picture.
Your help would be appreciated.
