LA 'hound, ex-NY-er here, with a request: I would like to find a place where mom and I could go between "Wonderful Town" matinee (45th bet 8 & 9) and dinner at Ilo (40th bet 5 & 6) on Weds. She doesn't get out much, and hasn't seen the glories of the "new" TS and I thought it might be fun to have a cocktail somewhere en route with her. Great ambiance, sophistication, fairly quiet (no roaring happy hour) and GOOD manhattans, martinis, rob roys, etc. (her generation knows from cocktails!) Thanks so much!
