One of my other sister's is visiting the city tomorrow and my parents are meeting her for lunch near Penn Station. I've searched the boards and can find virtually nothing in the area that sounds decent. I probably can get them to walk as far south as 28th and as far north as 40th - lets say between 5th ave and 8th ave.
Does anyone have any "safe" suggestions? Not too ethnic, the last time I had this problem we went to Houstons on the east side and they loved it.
