Hello, Two of us are staying near Grand Central this weekend and would like some recommendations on restaurants that serve decent Italian/American food. My son is a college student and more than likely will wear shorts and loafers. Would prefer to keep the food and bar bill with gratuity to < $150 for our meal. We enjoy pasta,red sauces, calamari, veal, salads,and pretty much eat anything with our beverages of choice being beer in this steamy weather. We have plans to sample some pizza slice places for lunch. Traveling on public transportation is fine for us and enjoyable. Being able to snag a reservation would also be a plus near 7 PM along with a lower noise level restaurant. Thank you.
