Am I crazy?

I have a somewhat complicated (and maybe impossible) request. My parents are coming into town this weekend, and I need to find a place for a birthday dinner. They’re staying on 37th and Madison, but location is less important than atmosphere and food. I’m looking for someplace fun and casual but with better-than-average food. The only cuisine off the table is Indian and Middle Eastern. A little bit of a wait isn’t out of the question as long as they have a bar. And the room can’t be too small – we’re six big people, and a cramped table would be torture.

I’d love to take them to Sriprahpai, but I’m worried about space. Then I thought about Mary’s Fish Camp, but again, too small and crowded. Al Di La would be great, but not on a Friday night. Please help me! I really want to make the dinner a success.
