The fiancee finishes her masters program at Columbia next month, and both of our parents will be in town for the graduation. As our families have never met, the night before graduation, my mother wants to take everyone out to dinner and has enlisted me to help find a location.
While I always have a good answer, this time I'm absolutely stumped. We live in Cobble Hill, but our guests will be in Midtown and we'd probably prefer to do this in Manhattan (though obviously we're not limited to Midtown).
I assume we'd want a relatively quiet room able to accommodate a table of 8, with great but not necessarily adventurous food.
