We want to host a dinner for a group of 9 people with a wide variety of issues from vegetarian to "not spicy" to no Asian. Our hotel is at 50th between Lex & 3rd and we would like to be able to walk. We want to be generous hosts, but would prefer not obscenely expensive or too formal. I'm thinking that Italian might meet the widest variety of tastes. Any ideas about where to take this wacky group? Thanks. I can use all the help I can get.
