Birthday dinner near the Crowne Plaza hotel?

We arrive in NYC on my friend's birthday, on the same flight. Since its her special day, she is splurging on a limo to take us from the Long Island airport (we're both using Southwest freebie tickets), so I told her I would buy us dinner that night. It will be fairly late, maybe around 8:30 or 9...any suggestions? She's staying at the Crowne Plaza, I'm staying at another convention hotel nearby but cheaper. I'd like someplace nice but not overly pricey. She likes Italian....probably not Asian, as she is one of those weird cilantro-haters and I'm afraid anything Vietnamese or Indian might have the dreaded stuff in it. And no Mexican, she comes from Southern California, where she eats it all the time....
