Here's the thing. I'm looking for someplace, not too pricey, for my mom's birthday. She wants either Sushi, Steak or Lobster, but being hard of hearing, I need someplace quiet, or with a nice separate room. One of the guests will only eat Chicken, as plain as possible. Ideally, something in the Chelsea, Flatiron, East or West Village area, but will consider elsewhere. It's a Wednesday night, around 7ish, so I'm not anticipating having too much trouble with availability. We considered El Quijote, but it's been so lousy lately; Centro Vasco will be too noisy and hasn't a private room. I've got the Sushi place covered, if we decide to go that route, but would love any suggestions for alternatives. Thanks.
