Hello New York chowhounds! I'm writing on behalf of three Los Angeleno chowhounds, who'll be visiting the city in a few weeks. We'll be staying at the Park Central Hotel, which, I understand, is right near the Museum of Modern Art. This is very exciting. But equally exciting is the chance for good food. Could I call upon anyone here for their recommendations? Preferred cuisines would be French, Italian, New American, and, I don't know, Traditional? Whatever one would call food that's good and satisfying, but not necessarily super-adventurous. As for price point, we're looking to come in around $20-$40/person for entrees. Ambiance is not especially a concern, though quieter is generally better. One more wrinkle: one of our party is a vegetarian (eggs and dairy fine, but no fish). As he has said though, anything more than a salad is perfectly acceptable.
Thanks in advance!
