I'm being taken to Lincoln Center, and was going to reciprocate by picking up the tab for dinner beforehand (preferably not too expensively). It seemed like a nice opportunity to dine 'way up further than I'd normally be, up in west 90th-110th Streets, and then we could come down.
Any ideas? I've run across recommendations for Metisse / Flor de Mayo / Gennaro... What's some place called Regional, on Broadway? I'm hoping for some place relatively quiet, open to almost anything except Chinese,Thai or Mexican.
