Parents visiting from Australia

blair | | Oct 24, 2010 03:50 PM

My parents are visiting NYC with friends next year (coming from Australia). It’s my dad’s 60th birthday soon, and I’d like to get him a voucher so they can eat somewhere nice while they’re there. Here’s my criteria:

- Somewhere with great atmosphere - I like the look of Eleven Madison Park’s art deco interior
- Somewhere with a lively atmosphere, but not a super young/trendy club-like scene
- Three courses for about $100 per person
- Modern American or Italian cuisine (not French)
- Quintessentially ‘New York’ (however you define that)

The places I’m considering at the moment are Eleven Madison Park, Craft, Marea and Aldea. Living in Australia, I haven’t been to any of these. What do people think? Is there somewhere else I should consider?


Eleven Madison Park
11 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10010
