Help - anniversary dinner w/unadventurous but easily impressed inlaws.

sonyako | Aug 4, 2006 10:35 PM

My future-in laws will be celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary, and we will be joining them along with their other child and her husband.

I want:
-GREAT and friendly service
-$80-$100 per person (not big drinkers)
-manhattan - lower-mid
-nothing too adventurious, spicy or over-the-top plating

These are folks in their 60s who don't go out to eat much, and when they do, it's italian or chinese food in Long Island. I blew their minds when I grilled Portobello mushrooms on their grill. We'd like to impress them with a delicious meal, and nice service and want somewhat high end. I thought of Hearth, as I recently was quite impressed there, but it might be too loud and too inventive for them.

Any thoughts?
Thanks,
SOnya
