I haven't seen my best friend in 3 years, and she will be in New York City-- tomorrow!-- for one night only. I want to take her out to dinner, and I'm looking for a restaurant with perfect atmosphere for catching up after all that time-- quiet enough so we can hear each other; relaxed enough that they will let us linger over drinks and coffee after our dinner is done, and not try to rush us out; and hopefully warm and pretty. Oh, right, the food: Italian or American would be best (she doesn't like seafood). She's staying at the Waldorf (51st and Madison) so Hell's Kitchen or UWS would be nice, but I'd travel to find the perfect place!! Any suggestions?
