I put it off, and now i need help! The 'rents are taking me to dinner for my birthday. I need a place that fits the following criteria:
Location: midtown-ish. not too far from penn station, but doesn't need to be within walking distance. union square to west 50s would be fine.
Price: entrees in the $17-25 range. (I guess that's considered moderate??)
Cuisine: We are fairly adventurous. I'm thinking Mediterranean would be great. Not so thrilled about Indian or Chinese, but most everything else is great.
Atmosphere: Not so fancy, but nice. Not too loud. Outdoor is a plus!
In the past, we've enjoyed Five Points, Trio, Alfama...
What about Loggia?
