I am taking my friend who recently graduated law school AND passed the bar (all in about a 6 month time frame) to see Avenue Q on Friday and would like to take her out to dinner beforehand as well. She is a VERY timid eater, and is pretty unwilling to try new things, so ethnic foods such as Indian, etc. is a definite no go. I on the other hand would like to have menu choices other than the tradional, so a place that offers "regular" as well as some interesting choices would be great.
I'm on a budget, so please nothing too expensive, but it doesn't have to be uber cheap either. I ate at a restaurant recently on 9th Avenue in the high 30's/low 40's, but I don't remember the name, but I do remember enjoying it...bah....
