First time poster here to Chowhound and this board.
We are spending about a week in Manhattan for our 25th wedding anniversary later this month. We are staying at Kitano. We plan to spend a lot of time during the days sightseeing and walking/touring, and evenings for nice dinners. So, I am looking for recommendations on local places for breakfast/lunch stops, and drinks/nice dinners. One night (a Wednesday), we are going to see The Lion King.
For dinner, we like Italian, Greek/Mediteranean, Indian, steaks, and would love something authentic but with understated elegance. Good food, good service, but not too flashy, you know. My wife loves good seafood. We do not like sushi or French cuisine. We want to stay away from tourist traps. Cost is not a huge factor.
During our daytime, we'd love to try just about anything. I am seeing a lot of references to Shake Shack, plus Artichoke and Joes for pizza. Breakfast near the hotel would be good to know, if there is anything you can recommend.
Thanks in advance.
