My parents are coming to visit me in the city for my birthday next week, and I am in desperate need of help in picking a restaurant! I love, basically, everything (especially ethnic food), but in this case, my tastes can take a back seat. My parents aren't picky eaters, but for a variety of reasons pork and seafood won't be the focal point of their culinary experience. I live on the UES, but I don't mind traveling around to find a place that will be great to celebrate! I'm looking for somewhere that isn't too expensive (less than $40/entree) and that perhaps has a nice wine menu (but this isn't as important as good food). Those are really the only parameters, I'm really open to any suggestions.
Thank you all so much for your help!
