Brother in law and his wife are coming into town. I've been tasked with making dinner reservations, for 4 on a Friday night in a few weeks.
Looking for one of 2 kinds of places...BUT quality of the food is important in either type of place...
Either a nice rustic-looking restaurant/neighborhood spot (like Il Buco) OR
Something very unique and New York that you won't find elsewhere (like Beauty & Essex, but with better food)
The only thing they won't eat is Asian food...(Sad, I know)
Really no specific restrictions on price.
And as far as location, anywhere in Manhattan works for us...
Of course if you've recently had a great meal and just want to share, I'm happy to consider it.
Thanks for your help!
