help me feed picky grandma

ok, so picky is putting it lightly. She will be in town for 2 days and is rreally hard to feed. her requirements...
1. place must be crowded regardless of time fo day- but we'll be eating at regular times this trip so should be ok.
2. she will only eat "american" or italian asian, nothing wierd or too modern/odd ingredients.
3. must not be ina secluded room- she loves t look at all the people in a bigger place or the street.

siiigh. she loves the olive garden. she is obsessed with times square (bless her heart we go there eveyr visit and she goes, ok now what? and we say um, thats it unless were going to a show there sint much to do here---and she gets annoyed lol)
She is OBSESSED with going to carmine's because we ate there once 8 years ago and she feels safe there. however we cant go for every meal--and going to times square more than once in a 2 day trip may make me cry. any good alernatives to carmines? should we try the west side the area any nicer?

please give me some alternatives fitting these requirements, hopefully in village? and save me having to share massive plates at carmines (3 of us dining) for 2 nighs in a row!! :)
