I'm taking my father to NYC in the fall for his 75th birthday and I was wondering if you could recommend some restaurants. We were last in NYC about three years ago and we had varying success. We went to Chantrelle, Four Seasons and Fiama Osteria(sp?). I like all cuisines but my father is originally from Ireland and so he is pretty much a meat and potatoes guy...his idea of exotic food is Spagetti Bolognese. I am thinking probably along the lines of a great classic French Restaurant, old fashioned Italian and perhaps a great seafood place. Btw being a stodgy 75 year old he doesn't like loud places.
