I need to take someone out for dinner tomorrow night somewhere in that area (which I do NOT know at all). I don't know that person very well, but don't think he's a foodie. He lives in Europe now but did spend about ten years of his life in NYC at some point.
I need a place that isn't too loud, has decent food and nice atmosphere, and is moderately priced.
I have considered Artisanal, and also Metrazur at Grand Central (just for the ambience). Any other suggestions?
